30 years on

Thirty years ago today, I had my first baby. Roxy grew to be a lovely intelligent child despite my complete lack of knowledge and experience with babies. This photo was taken in hospital shortly after she was diagnosed with the leukaemia that ended her life at age 4.

So pretty. There is no understanding of things like this, none at all.

I hope your memories of your beautiful daughter comfort you today and everyday.

This breaks my heart. I can't think of anything worse to live through. I hope the years have softened the pain. She was beautiful.

I imagine you spend time wondering what she might have grown up to be and do - I know I would. I think you may have looked very like that at the same age?
Thinking of you. Hugs Ali.

That's so sad. I can imagine how even after 30 years her birthday grieves you. She was such a beautiful girl!

Hugs,
Dagmar

So lovely and an angel in life...so sorry that she was taken from you ~ I can't imagine what kind of loss that would be. Thank you for sharing her sweetness with us.
