We Remember Our Sweet Anna Bella


Today our sweet little
AnnaBella
would be
7 years old.
WHERE have the years gone?
We held her for moments
in our arms but she is
forever in our heart.
She is sister to these
three special little girls.
Hold every child/grandchild
tightly because you never
know how long they will
be yours -they are just
to the world
on loan.
~Blessings~

Sometimes He asks us to give back something that means so much, and its never easy to let go especially if its a tiny little hand. Praying for you and the family on this day. Focus on what He let you keep, and the day will be easier to go through.

Shirley said...

Hi Diana, My heart goes out to you tonight and I cried because I know how painful it can be to lose a child. My brother lost a little boy at birth and a little girl at 6 months and my nephew, his wife, son 2 and their little 6 week old baby girl were killed in a car wreck. Thought to have lost control on an ice covered road. I really like the name of Anna Bella. Prayers to you and your family. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

joanne said...
