Three Little Birds

Story of 3 little birds and one who soared above us all.

Lydia’s Snowflakes

I don’t think the picture adequately captures the size of the snowflakes. After a really beautiful day yesterday with the first real signs of spring, today’s giant snowflakes are quite the contrast. Perhaps they are the size of the angel’s tears that are falling with ours.

We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support the past 24 hours. It has kept us going knowing so many friends and family from all over are keeping us all in prayers. We feel loved and the love Lydia shared with so many during her short 2 years.

    I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful Lydia.. Her short life has blessed so many.. Thank you for sharing your angel with all of us and allowing us to be blessed. May those of us who have been blessed by Lydia and the rest of your family in turn bless your family during this time of loss.. May God wrap His HUGE loving arms around you all and give you a peace and comfort that passes all understanding… God Bless..

    Eternal Child of Mother Earth
    Whate’er thy spirit’s path may be
    Our love and prayers shall go with thee”

    Amanda, Clay, Wyatt and Ava … words are utterly inadequate to express my sorrow. My entire family is keeping you in my thoughts. Everyone at my office is in tears right now. I’ve been crying on and off all day since hearing the news. We love you all.

    My heart goes out to you all.
    RIP little angel Lydia , no more pain , you are free to make heaven even more beautiful and sweet . 😥

  4. Our family is so sorry for your loss. Although we never met, as a fellow EA family, we have followed your posts and prayed for beautiful Miss Lydia. We will continue to pray for all of you during the difficult future. What a wonderful gift that she made it home to be with her Mommy and Daddy and Ava and Wyatt. I am sure it was wonderful to have all of your babies together, albeit a brief time. Perhaps knowing that Miss Lydia is free from all of her ailments and in heaven with the great grandparents that passed before her, can offer you a small measure of comfort. With deepest sympathy, Cathy DeSouza and family

    God bless your little angel. I cannot imagine your pain. My prayers are with your family and I too hope she is the fattest and most loved baby up there

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Looking through your blog it looks like Lydia was surrounded by many people who loved her very dearly. Everytime you hear a bird chirp you will now know its your angel saying hello from heaven.

    Dear Clay and Amanda,

    I didn’t know about your daughter’s condition until today when I started seeing people post sympathy notes on FB. I am so sorry for your loss. May God pour out His peace on you and your family and comfort you as you go through one of the hardest things anyone can. I’ll be praying for you all.

You, as parents, have done your best for Miss Lydia and now God will do the rest. May you feel God’s loving arms around you as you go through this next journey in your life. Jim & Bev Whorton
