Gardens for You / Kathy B. (Sofia's "Nana" ) Dear Sofia, On May 20 your family and friends got together and planted a garden for you. It's on the same hill where you were practicing cart-wheels last summer. It's been only a little more than 2 weeks but already the garden looks beautiful. Your mother tends it with love and tears, and the plants everyone brought for you are thriving and even starting to bloom.
I miss you more than I can say. When I am working in my own garden I always remember so many times we spent there together. You as a little girl laughing at how skinny the earthworms got when we held them up. Turning on the hose and running through the misty spray. Picking ripe plums. Squeezing the fat seed pods of the impatiens so they exploded. Sometimes I think I hear the side gate open, and hear you giggling as the dogs run up to greet you. I imagine you will come around the corner and smile the smile that always came from your heart. Even though you were still quite young your love was so unconditional and even reassuring.
All the beauty of summer is just heartbreaking without you in the world. I will love you forever, Your Nana
I'm Still Here / Mom
Friend, please don't mourn for me I'm still here, though you don't see. I'm right by your side each night and day and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near. I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll never depart as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight- I'm the brightest star on a summer night. I'll never be beyond your reach- I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around and the pure white snow that blankets the ground. I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond, The clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring, The first warm raindrop that April will bring. I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine, and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you, you can talk to me through the Lord above you. I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep. I'm the smile you see on a baby's face. Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

My deepest sympathy in your loss of precious Sofia. The pain and heartache loving parents endure when we bury a child is unimaginable... faith, family, and friends are the strengths the good Lord continuously provides for me to be a "SURVIVOR." You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Pain and Grieving
When you hear me laugh one moment in time, Do you think...Oh great! she seems just fine.
The smiles you see, don’t reach my eyes.... Nor do you hear my silent anguished cries.
My heart is breaking, can’t you see.... Without my sweet children here with me.
My heart and soul have taken a big hit.... Yet some loved ones tell me, "get over it."
Each new day is an emotional strain.... I pray none of them experience this pain.
Only another parent that is grieving too, Can understand what I am going thru.
My precious children have died...that is true, But why must I hide this pain from you?
Written by Diane Craddock on 8/26/05... In loving memory of my children JJ Wade and Michele Wade
"Lord, your steadfast love is my strength to face each new day while my wounded heart struggles. Though I can't really see the progress, I find myself having the courage to entertain fond memories before they are washed away with my tears. Dear Lord, continue to strengthen my soul!"
Spring without you / Mom
I see the snow melt and I think of you I watch the birds hop around on the melting earth and think of you I plan beautiful gardens and think of you I am ready to get out into the fresh spring air but without you I am not sure how fresh that air will be
Sofia- my love will forever be, and someday will come and we will be together. Close

Sofia I miss her so much. I can't believe she is gone. She was such a kind person. When sofia told me she was not going to come to San Miguel I was sad she was so nice. She never said mean things to me. I remember her laughing and smile when we would do something stupid. In class when she would always argue about doing something saying its hard, but she would always do even better than what she was suppossed to do. When I heard that she had died I was so sad. I didn't now how to react or say. I was just remembering her. From the star sofia was so nice to me. We would email each other sometimes not alot. Sofia one time brought homemade cake. We couldn't eat because it had to be store bought. So after school me and my friend went and grab some cake from she knew how to bake a cake it was good. Remembering her makes so glad that I meet her.We had class togather and she was so smart. We did year book togather. I miss her and if I could I would give anything to bring her back. I will always miss you sofia. You are watching all your loved ones and friend who cared so much about you.

Memories of a joyful spirit... / Betsy Nelson (neighbor and friend )
We had the joy of having Molly and Sofia as our neighbors for 8 years, and it was wonderful to have such friendly neighbors like them. Sofia spent lots of time with my children, Levi and Lilly, and she definitely seemed like another sibling to them. They played together so well, with great imagination, despite a pretty big age difference, which just demonstrated Sofia's amazing loving grace, to be so open to playing with younger children. She was also very helpful when she was at our house, and helped Lilly to see that cleaning her room could be kind of fun! We feel really blessed to have had her in our lives, and are feeling that empty 'Sofia-shaped' hole in the world. Our heart goes out to Molly and Fred, as I can't even imagine how difficult this is to deal with. We light candles often and share our fond memories of Sofia with each other, and we feel the warmth of her presence. Close
Beautiful gentle princess in Heaven / Mylène Roberge (mommy to angel Sean )
I want to extend my sympathies for the loss of your precious daughter Sofia. She is absolutely beautiful, her smile, her eyes, her loving touch with her sisters. She is amazing. I know to well the heartache and pain of loosing a precious child, my only child Sean, passed away peacefully in my arms, a week after his 3rd heart operation, on July 8th 2005, he is forever 8 months young. Sofia and Sean are now united in a place grander than our imaginations. They are at peace, safe and surrounded by love. Sofia your family misses you terribly, please embrace them as always, with your beautiful soft angel wings, sending them comfort and love. And Sofia until you see your family again, you can cuddle my little Sean, rock him and show him around, he will cuddle you back.
Praying for you / Angel Mom Berneice Ross
My Dear Molly, I am keeping you in my Prayers... Your daughter is so beautiful... May the Lord watch over you all the days of your life... When your Sofia meets up with my Charlene in the Heavens with our Lord they will rejoice that their Moms have a connection here on earth... Here at Angel Moms we feel comfort,compassion,love..... May God Be With You.... Close
