Butterfly Ball (Moment for Leah)

A few posts ago I wrote about the upcoming Butterfly Ball and how Todd asked to include Leah, and wanted me to write a few words for him to read to the attendee's.

The Ball is not until February 20th but I wanted to post what I came up with; considering most of you readers out there won't be making it to the Ball anyway.

Leah Elizabeth Turnquist was born on 2-10-2009 and returned to God on 12-31-2009. Leah suffered from Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa. She spent half of her life trached and her whole life bandaged. We knew that Leah's life would be short ...... but glorious.
In just 10 short months she touched more lives than I could ever imagine. Her strength taught me to be stronger, her courage humbled me in the face of the challenges her daily care presented, and her spirit renewed my faith that nothing happens without God's will; and that the beauty in the world is infinite.
She never spoke one word; but her eyes and smile told a story of unconditional love. I know her transition from an angel here on earth to one in heaven was effortless.
We miss her dearly and her Daddy and I yearn for the day that we can once again see and hold her.


.......... I hope you like it Leah.
All my love forever and ever, Mommy

Beautifully said. I can't think of a better way to express what this precious baby girl meant to you. I'm sure Leah is excited about the day you get to meet and hold her once again....pain free.
