Happy Birthday, Lucy Rose

Dear Lucy ~

I can't believe that it has already been two years since the day of your birth...On these anniversary days, I can remember everything as if it were just happening now. What a precious gift you were to us, sweet girl, and to so many others who prayed for you, held you, rejoiced in your birth and mourned your death with us. We are honored that God chose us to be your parents, Lucy, and we pray that some day we will be where you have already gone, into the arms of Jesus and surrounded by the company of all of His angels and saints!

Your name, Lucy Rose, is fitting - Lucy means light, and you truly were a light in our lives, teaching us about life, love, and suffering in a way that only your most innocent, vulnerable, and sweet life could do. Rose is the flower often used to symbolize Our Blessed Mother, and also reminds us of St. Therese of Liseux, "the little flower". 

We love you, Lucy, and remember you especially today, on your second birthday in heaven.


Mommy, Daddy, big brother Christopher, and little sister Maria
