Sweet Sweet Girl

This past week has been a tough one. My cousins daughter Danyiell passed away. She was born with a heart condition and had a heart transplant as a young girl. Danygirl was such a fighter, and always had the most beautiful smile on her face! Always worried about everybody else and if everyone is ok. The last few months had been pretty hard ones for her, she had been hospitalized a few different times. This time though she ended up in St. Louis at the same hospital my dad passed away at. They had a hard time figuring out exactly what was going on with her because she was so weak. They treated her for heart rejection, and she ended up getting off all the machines, she was getting her hair done, fingerpainting and playing farkle with her sister. Things seemed to be going in the right direction.

Two days later everyone is told that she's not doing so well, and fluid is building up around her heart faster than they can take it off. Our next message was telling us Danygirl gained her wings and was no longer in any pain. I have been crying ever since, she was such a beautiful soul, so innocent in this mad crazy world. Why God why? I can't even begin to imagine how her mom, dad, siblings, and grandparents are feeling right now because I know how my heart hurts, it hurts because I love that girl and I never got to tell her myself how amazing she is. My heart hurts for her immediate family.

I also know the drive back from that hospital without your loved one. Kim and I drove almost 5 hours without my dad. Five long hours of crying feeling like your world just crumbled. Wondering how you are going to keep going, how is anything ever going to be ok again. I know that feeling all to well, and my heart breaks for them knowing that feeling.

All i keep telling myself is Danygirl you are never going to be forgotten and you are going to be missed so much here on earth, but boy I am kind of jealous you got to get your wings before me! I know there were so many loved ones waiting with open arms to welcome you home!

Fly High Danygirl
