How to get the best out of this blog...

All blogs post are more recent first, if you want to read about Ellie's Journey I'd suggest starting from the first post back in September 2011 (October Posts) and read on Chronologically from there. It will make more sense and you'll get to meet the little girl who gave my life purpose.
Thank You for reading - every new reader shows that she has met another person and in her short life made such an impact. x

Thursday 3rd March

I wished Mummy a happy birthday today she was awake at 12am with me and Daddy. We all cuddled on my big girl bed. I was very tired, my breathing and my heart. So I slept and when I stirred a little before seven thirty, Mummy and Daddy were holding my hands, they covered my head with soft wet kisses. I then decided it was time to go. I am going to a special place where I wont be poorly anymore, where I will be able to grow into a beautiful princess who will play and run and sing.

Mummy says that an Angel job is the only one good enough for me, so she made sure I had feathers for my journey, oh and of course, Mowbray too.

  27. This must be the saddest day in the life of everyone that has known Ellie, the day that we dreaded but all feared could arrive before we were ready for it.

    We were all very fortunate to have been involved in her life however great or small and she was blessed to have had Dan and Lou as parents.

    We believe everything in life is here to teach us something and enrich our lives. I think Ellie has taught us how precious life is and however poorly, she was definitely a fighter.

    Dan & Lou have taught us that the most important thing in our lives is to love the people we care for. The love and dedication that they gave Ellie makes us very proud to know them and to be their friends.

    They did everything they possibly could to make her short life the best it could be and we are sure that Ellie knew that.

    With much love to Dan, Lou & Ellie (Sleep tight princess)

  35. What a remarkable job you did in such a short time. You should be very proud of yourself, miss. I'm sure that your work isn't finished, just the location.
    Dear Laura and Dan - all of our love from here, you two have been the most inspirational, strong, loving parents, and I'm sure that there are so many little ones and their mums and dads out there that appreciate everything you have done. You could have just looked after yourselves, but you rose to the challenge and excelled beyond anybody's imagination. xxxxxxxx

  36. With such utter sadness that we say goodbye. You are free forever now

    Congratulations on all the pennies you raised, hopefully to help someone else as special as you

    Gone but never forgotten xxxx

  37. Like many others on here, I really dont know what to say but I think this expresses it .....

    This place is full of people
    who have come to say goodbye
    But no one wants to see you go
    And we're all left asking why.

    In our pain and tears we share
    A heartache that cannot heal
    but in our minds we will keep
    Memories no one can steal.

    We all can feel your hand in ours
    And see your loving face
    You haven't gone we feel you here
    A love we cant replace.

    You meant so much to each of us
    And in our hearts your always be
    I hope you can see how precious you were
    To them, to us, to me.

    Love you all so much and thinking of you,

    H & O xxx
