We know how special each child is and how special Molly was to you. We know this time is not easy either. Be consoled to remember, especially at this time of year, that our mother Mary also had to bury her child. Pray for her consolation that Molly be with her and her Son today and that she will ask Jesus to bless you during this time. Our peace, hugs, and silent thoughts are with you.

Dear Joanne and Burton,
I was so sorry to hear that your Molly had passed away. We are all keeping you and your families in our prayers. Losing a child is the worst of experiences. My consolation has always been knowing that wonderful people I love are now holding the children I no longer can. I am sure she is happily in Grace's arms today.
