    My neighbor girl who got diagnosed with AML in October, passed away this afternoon.

    She was only 14 year old. Thankfully she made it thru the holidays and got to come home for Christmas. Her little sisters and brothers go to church with me...they all wrote "Dear God" letters this past Sunday that about broke my heart. All they wanted for was their sister to live and get better.

    My avatar pic is the quilt that I made for her when she first went into the hospital.

    I'm so sorry to hear that. It's always sad when anyone passes, but when a child does it's especially hard to deal with. My thoughts and prayers for her soul and for her family and friends.

    They moved into our neighborhood about 2yrs ago. We started picking up her little brothers and sisters every Sunday on our church bus route. Holly came a few times too. We went and visited her at the hospital and have helped the family during this tough time. They are my special family that I adopted for the year. It is really tough to see the mom and the siblings have to go thru this.

    I'm glad I was at home (day off) when I got the news.

    I have lost two children, so I know how awful it is--please pass along a hug from me.....only God can keep you sane when you lose a child.

    I'm glad you were home when you got the news,Barb. Words are at a loss for me right now - it would seem that God has you in a very special place right now and He will give you the strength you will need to shoulder with these dear people over the next months. May you continue to be an encouragement to them.

    Children dying will never make sense to me. My sincere thoughts to the family and you. You obviously cared for this child. May your pain be replaced by the happy memories she left behind.

    When my son died, I was told that he was chosen for GOd's special angels and did not have to earn his way on earth so long. Made me feel a little better. It is never easy. *H*U*G*S*

    It is so hard to lose someone, but extra hard when it is a child. Sorry for your loss.

    I don't know what to say. The thought of losing a child has got to be the worst thing to happen to a mother. I will pray you and her family.

    Thank you all for your kind words. I'm very thankful to have met her and her family...she had a loving heart and really brought her family closer together.

    She was a blessing to her family and will continue to be, because so many family members have come together over her sickness. Her work on this here earth is done...she has earned her angel's wings....I like that.

    So sorry to hear that..my sympathies to everyone. I went to one child's funeral in my life, and hope I never had to do it again. She was 4 and died from cancer also. Cherish all the beautiful memories of this precious child.
