Most folks know that Sofie left this earthly existence yesterday just before 5:00 p.m. The last twenty-four hours were tough and this experience is hard to handle. The girls and I greatly appreciate all of the kind thoughts, prayers, and tears shed for our loss. We will need all of your help during the next few weeks and months.
Today, my sister Amy arrived from Boston, having left at basically a moments notice to come here. She is awesome and we couldn't get through this stage of our grief without her. We are having a memorial service for Sofie on Wednesday, March 28th at 3:00 p.m. at Port City Community Church. We're planning for a reception to follow. I will post more details as plans converge.
I miss Sofie so much that I physically hurt. I know that she is in a better place and her suffering has ended. Yesterday, there was a great celebration in Heaven. At this moment, with that knowledge and with the love of everyone who has kept us in thoughts and prayers, we will get through today.
