I know your shining down on me from Heaven, like so many
friends we've lost along the way;
And I know eventually we'll be together…One Sweet Day


My Sweet Baby Cassy,

I can't tell you how empty I felt without you here with me. And how much I miss you, so much it hurt. The emptiness has been filled with the Joy, and the privilege of having you in my life.

I know that you are with your brothers, Zoey, Trystan and Dozer, and also your sisters Jujy and Ki-Ki, and you guys have probably chewed up everything but the Bridge, by now. That’s ok. Be free Sweet Cassy. You will always be young, and beautiful, and healthy. For eternity…

I want you to know how proud I am of you, and how much better of a person you made me. You made me strong, like you. You made me a fighter, like you. You taught me how to love unconditionally, when I never thought I possibly could. I would never change one thing about you, except take away all the pain you endured. Thank You Sweet Girl for coming into my life! I still smell you, and feel you all around me. I miss you, and I always will. What helps me through this is knowing that you will never be in pain, and never have another seizure. That brings such great comfort to me. I just wish it could have been that way for you here, with me. I know your safe and happy and will be there when I pass on. I love you so much Cassy, and I know that God took you because he has great plans for you. You are so sweet and loving,, and gave me such joy.

So, my Sweet Cassy, be free and live your eternal life the way I always wanted you to live. Until we are reunited…

All My Love,
