One year ago, at 1:41 pm, she graced us with her appearance. She made a tiny cry for us to cherrish. By 2:30 pm, she was being held by her Maker. Thinking of Caroline Grace today. Wishing she could be here with us. Yet, knowing Crosby would not had it been so. Bittersweet is this day. Sorrow softened by the joy of the little life we have been blessed to have.
You give and take away. My heart will choosed to say, Lord, blessed be your name...
To Crosby

Sometimes I may hug you a little too tight,
I may even check on you ten times a night,
Sometimes I may kiss you a little too much,
Cling to you, sing to you, tickle and such,
As you grow up you may notice me kissing your nose,
Touching your hair,
feeling your toes,
I may cry when you walk,
laugh when you talk,
Scream when you're late,
coming home from your date,
I may very often pull you near
Because I don't want you to see my tears,
I never will want you to have my fears,
Because I need you to know I hold you so dear,
Cause you see, I'm not just your mother,
A long time ago, I lost another.

Thinking of you today. While the joy of Crosby is so sweet I know it doesn't change the loss of your girls.

Blessing to you today and always.

Blake and Danielle--
I know this day is an almost surreal paradox. Both of your precious girls will always be watching over their amazing little brother. What a gift he has been! My prayers are with you today and every day.
Love, Linder

Tears of pain and tears of joy are the extremes of emotion, all in love.

Danielle, Blake & Crosby,
"Our LORD will never give us more than we can handle". Not only did our dear LORD tell us that, Danielle,your sweet mother "the prayer warrior"(as your sweet brother has so sweetly referred to her as) for years she reminded me of this same thought. So, as you look into the eyes of this beautiful baby boy, remember this,

Thou has given so much to me,
Give me one more thing-a grateful heart,Not thankful when it pleases me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart
Whose pulse may be Thy praise.
George Hunter

Crosby is so blessed, as we are all for having you and Blake and now Crosby in our lives.
We love you dearly, "all five"
