she came

little mary lenore was stillborn on tuesday evening. we knew that she would be gone before we got to the hospital. earlier that day we found out that there was no heart beat while we were at the doctor's office in the morning. we are very sad, but dealing with our loss very well. there doesn't seem to be any reason for this happening except that she just decided that since she didn't have to experience earthly life that she would just get a body and work in heaven and wait for the rest of us to come to her. she looked a lot like emmy when she was a baby and was very petite like emmy had been. she was 5lbs and 14ozs and 19 ½ " long. she had blond hair and dark blue eyes. just to let everybody know, it's okay to call us or whatever. we are okay talking about it.

oh Ruth. I am so sorry! please tell me if there is anything we can help you out with.

It is a comfort to know the plan and know she is in a happy and healthy place. I can only imagine how upsetting it is still.

we love you and will remember you in our prayers.
