3 weeks ago tonight our daughter, Elise Maria Heffernan, was born. I don’t have the perfect words for our beautiful angel just yet, and it is likely my words will never be enough. But until I get there I wanted to share just a little bit about her with you.
Elise Maria Heffernan
June 27th, 2011 – July 5th, 2011
6lb-3oz, 19 inches long
She was perfect in every way…
Here is a slideshow I put together for her visitation. Elise was here for just a short time but she touched so many hearts, more than some will in a lifetime, and is loved so very much. We miss her terribly and cannot wait to see her again one day when we join her in Heaven. Until then she remains Our Angel.
My sister-in-law, Mary, wrote a beautiful post about Elise and their experience on her blog. It gives a loving Aunt’s perspective – thank you, Mary, for writing it.
And I know this is not the proper way, but we want all of our families and friends to know how thankful we are for them, for making these last few weeks even just a little bit easier. Your love, comfort and support mean the world to us.
Until my fingers hit the keyboard again, Good night.
