Heart Broken

As many of you know, my sweet, incredible niece Kadence lost her battle with HLH early Thursday morning.  I cannot even put into words the hurt that we are feeling.  We are sleep-deprived and emotional, but we wouldn't change it for the world, since we were able to spend as much time as possible with Kadence in her final days.  She had such an infectious laugh and could brighten the entire room, and we will miss her so much that it hurts already thinking about it.

It's easy to be selfish and wish that she was still here with me and us, but I need to keep remembering that she was in so much pain during the treatment of her HLH and she is no longer suffering.  Our little pride and joy is now an angel looking down on us.  We will think of her often, especially when we hear Justin Bieber or see anything on the Disney Channel.  We will forever put puzzles together in your honor and eat Smileys since they were your favorite thing ever!

To be able to remember Kadence and all of the great times and stories are awesome, but the pictures are priceless.

You will always be my number one girl, Kader!!!  I love you to the moon and back!!
