A message in an egg.

On Easter we meet a family at the cemetary. They gave my sisters paper and pen to write Kaden a note if they wanted. So my sister Rachel wrote him a letter. I found it today...In an egg and this is what it said:


I miss you so much buddy. I think of you every day. I have pictures in my room of you because it reminds me of your perfect example. my favorite is the one of your small hand holding on to someones finger. At the hardest times even you had courage. When I was with you I saw it and could feel you radiate such a sweet spirit. Your very lucky to have the mom you do. She grew up to be an amazing woman. I know because I saw her and noticed that she read her scriptures ad prayed faithfully. She was obedient and hard working. I may never know the pain she went through losing a child. She was so sad when you had to leave. We all were, but its comforting to know we can see you again. There is so much I could tell you about your wonderful parents but there isn't enough room. I'm sure you know them and watch them. I want you to also know that I look up to you. You bring me great strength. I think of how great it would be to live with you again and I am trying hard to be able to. Thank you for your example and sweet humble spirit. You mean so muc to me as well as the rest of our family. God be with you till we meet again. :) Love, Rachel (your favorite aunt :))

I have to think of a poem for you, I'll leave it next time I come or it may be a song? I enjoy singing and Im trying to become better but it takes time and practice. But I'll be sure to visit you more...last time was Christmas! But I think of you every day and I promise you I'll remember you and to pray every day. I love you.

I hope she doesn't mind me sharing...but after planning his headstone today...I was needing something like this and when I found and read it today...I must admitt I was a little teary eyed.

Kaden loves you too.

and so do I.

  3. I just found your comment on my blog. I don't know how you found me, but I think that it isn't a coincidence that you did. I would love to get some information from you about the cleft lip surgery and any other information you could give me. I am so sad for your loss and send my love and prayers to you and your family. It is funny how you can not know somebody, but yet you can feel so connected. I feel very connected to you for some reason and would love to talk to you more. My email address is
