Missed & New "Thank Yous"

I knew when I finally wrote my thank you entry a couple weeks ago that I would mistakenly leave a few people out. My brain is still some what frazzled so I apologized ahead of time.

Again, so sorry.

A few I missed...

To the wonderful ladies who donated flowers & plants to Janessa’s garden, Damarys, Debbie, Alice, Jane.

To my mom who for my birthday took me shopping for all the garden supplies.

To the couple of ladies who messaged me wanting to bring a plant in the spring, thank you.

Janessa’s garden has done a lot of healing for me.

To everyone who brought food the first days after we lost her. My Mom, Zena, Damarys, Alice, Lisa & anyone else who contributed. I was a zombie so my memory fails me. It was appreciated so very much. We ate it all up when our appetite was present. I seriously did not cook dinner for two months. Just couldn’t function. I wish I would’ve known how to ask for help & food then…the boys starved!

To Lea @ Angel Wings Memorial Boutique for sending me a pair of angel wings in memory of Janessa.

Aren’t they cute?

Bree @ My Baby Butterfly Ella, for making Janessa a beautiful butterfly. She used green, the birthstone color of May.

Jessica at Momma of Two Angels for sending up Janessa a balloon on October 15th (National Pregnancy & infant Loss Awareness Day.) I was not in well place & was unable to acknowledge the day. I felt terrible for not doing anything. I received your email the next day & it felt so good that she was remembered that day. That meant so much to us! My husband was taken back by your gesture.

Some new thank yous...

Amy for visiting Janessa. Having you visit her means so much to me. The beautiful crystal cross you brought her is so nice. I left it there for a week but couldn’t bear the thought of something happening to it. I hate that I have to think that way but apparently I do.

I took it home & have it displayed with her picture. I used it on her 6 month anniversary to light a candle for her.

My Mom for bringing her a beautiful “Christmas” angel for her six month anniversary. It is so nice!

Felicia for contacting me in regards to visting Janessa & bringing her something. We love that people go visit her!

Dyanna for making a donation to Every Life Has A Story & for being so supportive!

Kim (Macha) Golinski for being just as supportive & making a donation in memory of Janessa to the Dempsey Burdick Memorial Foundation. It means so much to Jonathan & I.
Holly @ Caring For Carleigh for sending me a pic of Janessa’s name. How lovely is that? She thought of my baby girl & took a moment to remember her!

All of these gestures have me brought me some comfort, THANK YOU ALL.
