Thank You!





Sage Caroline

Prayers were said in Her behalf...

Her family prayed...

Her friends prayed...

People all around heard Her story and prayed...

We prayed so hard and with so much faith...

And Heavenly Father answered...

He needed Her home...

Her mission is with him...

Our MIRACLE didn't happen the way we wanted...and I know there is a MIRACLE in this situation somewhere, but for now I just haven't found it...

She is in Heaven...

And, She is Happy...

Thank you for your thoughts and for your prayers...

Hold your little ones a bit tighter tonight...I know I am!

Love, Auntie Amy

i am really and truly so sorry for the loss of this sweet little girl. really, i do know of and trust in god's plan for each of us, but at times like this sometimes it's hard to imagine what that could be. my heart aches for all of the family, especially those devastated parents and siblings. my prayers will now be for the great comforter to be among them.

I came to your blog via Sara Stakers and I hoped and prayed for a miracle for you all. I am so sorry this is the result. I feel so deeply for you and your family! I wish there was more I could say. I know God had a plan, but sometimes it seems too hard for words... 'Eyes that are wet now long shall be tearless...' is all I can think of... God bless. I pray for your peace and tranquility of spirit and mind.

Stephanie said...

I am so sorry for your family's loss. You all have been on my mind since I read the story over on Stakers blog. I was even more drawn to it when I found out that she did the same thing my daughter (2) does with holding her breath until passing out. I cannot imagine the pain. Your family has been added to my bible study prayer list. May God give you all peace at this time and reveal His plan to you in all of this.

auntie amy,
i DONT know who you are where you live etc. I DONT remember how I found your blogspot to tell you the truth Im glad I did. At your lose I KNOW I have taken my kids for granted.
I want you to know that because of your thoughts I WILL hold my little ones closer, hug them longer, kiss them more often, and remember life is to short to be so upset of the "little thing" they do. My kids are 6,4 and 22 months and I couldnt imagine a day w/out them. Im TRUELY sorry for your lost, and I THANK YOU for sharing your sweet little Sages story for all of us to hear. PLEASE know you that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May our Father in Heaven give your family the strenth and courage to get through this difficult time. Not only now but in the days to come.
May your family feel his loving hand on your shoulders as he is feeling pain w/ you.
Much love,
Tiffany.. Utah
