Happy Birthday, Rachel

Happy Birthday Rachel

It's hard to believe that Rachel would be celebrating her 30th birthday today.  It seems incredulous that this is the sixth birthday without her.  Yet I would not have traded a moment of the time we were given with her, I treasure every precious memory.  

Today we will honor and remember her by participating in a butterfly release, her nephews will help set them free.  It is important and healing to remember our loved ones in special ways; to take the time to acknowledge their gift to us, and how they made a difference in our lives.  

Blessings! until we meet again.


  1. Our son, too, would have been 30 this year. I wish with all my heart he were here...


    1. Becky I am so sorry for your loss, it is truly difficult as a parent to cope sometimes. The longing never ends, we miss them each and every day. Hugs

    1. Thanks Nancy,

      I've been away from the blog for a while, life sometimes has us moving in other directions. I have been facilitating a bereavement group, and that has been my main focus. Hope you are doing well, I read your posts often, and love the strength and courage that speaks so loudly in your words. Thank you for being you.
      Love, Rose Mary

  3. My daughter's name is Rachel and today she is 30. She passed at age 16. I miss her so much. I love your message to your daughter very much. It captures so accurately my own thoughts and feelings. Please accept my condolences.
