It was such a good day and then around 7pm tonight, our precious little Sierra's heart stopped. Her halo brace was immediately removed, CPR given, an emergency tracheotomy was inserted. They worked hard on her, but she didn't make it. She died. The family is devestated, so unexpected, so very sad. So many tears. I feel so bad for her parents, my stepson and his xwife. How do you bury your child? It's just not right.

oh donna, my dear friend i am so very sorry to see this post. my heart goes out to you, john and the rest of your family.

evidently God needed a new little angel and called sierra home.

the blessing is that she is not suffering and is at peace. this time of year will be very hard for you and i understand that as we lost mo's mom the day after Christmas several years ago.

know that you are loved and that God is in control.
