There you are, dear Darren, with Lucas and Logan, who you play with and roughhouse in the heavenly garden. You saw the rejoicing and felt the triumph when you arrived there, nurtured as you were by our Father and Mother. Maybe you were the littlest angel for a while, just like in the book I read your cousin at night. Maybe you are the one she sees when she starts talking at Mass with such intensity. Maybe it is the miracle of your life – and death – that has made us all the loving family we are.
In the midst of our Easter rejoicing, dear Darren, you are not far from our hearts. We remember you and the joy of the day simultaneously, and we thank God for the grace to wait until that day when we will meet you face to face.
thnak you for those wonderful words…I will always remember this day with such joy and with such heartache. I want to live on earth as long as i can and see my children grow and have their own children, but when the day comes that my maker is calling me, I will be so glad to finally hold my baby boy again. i miss him dearly and will never forget him lying on my belly hoping for him to breathe just one little breath. But God spared my a great deal that day and i think you for your kind heart.
Happy Easter and give bethie a hug from us !!!
Hi! I thought you and your readers might be interested in some post-Easter news about Pope Benedict XVI…
The Pope’s car is being auctioned off to raise money for Habitat for Humanity:
The bidding is already more than $200,000! Personally, I think this is a really fun and creative way to raise
money. The auction goes until April 14th if you and your readers want to check it out.
Thanks, Aimee. Hugs back…
BJ, thanks for the information…off-topic but interesting…
