Hardest Post Ever :-(

I have been away from blogging for a very long time. I have tried to return many times but I have been stricken with writers block. I keep writing many, many posts but I can never seem to finish them. I am hoping that if I can finish this post that maybe I can get back on track. This is the hardest post to finish because it is about my best friends baby that has left us. This is an edited version of the funeral folder that Stacy of My Thoughts and I made for the funeral. I am asking for prayer for my friend Beth and her husband Matt. They are going through a hard time and need all the support they can get. Beth has expressed that she wants the memory of Rebecca to live on. This is my way of showing the world what a beautiful baby she was. You were only with us a short time little Rebecca, but you will be missed.

With grieving, heavy hearts, we announce the arrival and departure of our baby girl,

Rebecca Jodell

She arrived on Feb. 27, 2009, at 5:32am and departed on Feb. 27, 2009, at
9:16am. She weighed 15.2 ozs and was 11.5 inches long. She looked very peaceful, and was
a perfect, beautiful baby. She was, and still is, much loved and shall live on forever in our

Our dear friends and family, we acknowledge that interaction with us in the near future may prove awkward and difficult. Please know that it is fine to talk about Rebecca. Please do not step around her birth, her brief, beautiful existence or her death. She is very much loved by us and we wish to remember her, not forget her. We can only heal if we take time to grieve, so please do allow us our times of sorrow. We so appreciate all your love and support; thank you for your love for us, and our dear baby girl.

Oh dear...I'm SO sorry to hear this. I'll remember them in my prayers. A friend of mine also lost his baby (he was born dead)...and it's true that you do need time to grieve...but may God comfort them in their grief...

I know there is nothing that can take the sadness and loss away when you loose a child, but I know the good Lord will hold her close until her parents can see her again.
God bless,
