Continuing on

These past few days have been ok, surprisingly. We've gotten thru, had breakdowns and breakthroughs. I will tell you that having to plan your own child's funeral, it sucks. We meet tomorrow with the funeral director to get things set up.

These last couple of days have been great for testing and increasing our testimonies. The love of friends and family have aided us much but, well I'm not sure what to say... I find comfort in my Savior and His atonement, faith in my Heavenly Father's plan, and the desire, or rather the panic, to live my life worthy to be where she is some day.

Thanks to all of you who have supported us thru thought/prayers/ and well wishes.

Still here for you, happily!

You are amazing.

If other people could have your attitude...well, I think more people would live happier and deal better with the crap that happens.

Actually, I think panic is the right word. My dad always says "run scared to the end"...I think there's something to that! Great talking to you!

I prefer YSA.

You 'll have ups and downs just remember to breathe, to not rush through anything.

My prayers are with you.

wanted to add my prayers and tears to the pile... I'm deeply grateful for the Atonement and for my Savior... and yet the pain doesn't get completely erased. Maybe not ever in this life.

Hold on.

My testimony has been deepened as I have seen how you all have handled this. I am reminded of my gratitude for my Savior and the restoration of his gospel that allows us to be sealed as eternal families. Please know, if there is anything I can do, I'm there.

Hey Gorgeous! I love Cheyenne's remark - we are right there running with her dad :)
Great to hear from you! Love you!!

I am so with you on walking around looking for a grave plot being young. It just does not seem right and very unfair. It is a day that I would love to forget. I just try and remember that Joseph Smith said that all of our losses will be made up to us if we remain faithful. I know they will be and it makes me love my son even more b/c of it.

So beautifully put, Tracy. It sounds cliche and trite, but thank goodness for the Plan of Salvation. You don't have to wonder about where Brooklyn is or if she had a purpose here on Earth. You already know the answers to both. Love you.
