For Clara

Clara Marie, August 8, 2003.


You were the much anticipated and already much loved goddaughter. You, your mom, and I had many adventures and experiences together that Spring and Summer. And I looked forward to a life of being your godmother and auntie. The day you were born was the most beautiful and the most awful day of my life. I couldn't believe that you were gone, what kind of cruel joke was being played on us all?  My heart broke for your parents and I wished then and have always wished that somehow I could take the pain from them. You were a beautiful girl and you remain a beautiful girl in my memories. When a ladybug visits me, especially in the middle of winter, or some unexpected time, or on Christmas Day, I know it's you, coming to say hi to Auntie Dianne. Always remembered, always loved, dearest Clara. ♥

Aw, thanks Dianne. You have me bawling at my keyboard. It just means so much to us when our loved ones around us remember her, talk about her, write about her. I see these circles of love radiating out and we're so honored.

((HUGS)) and so much love to you, my friend. Thank you.
