Day Five: Memorial

Daniel and I were full of excitement when we found out we were going to have a little girl. We both wanted a darling little princess…and because she was going to be born in February we decided to plant pink flowers to welcome her home. Unfortunately, she never came home to see the beautiful pink cyclamen we planted for her.

So, as a memory of Jane we decided that every year around winter we are going to plant red flowers because her birthstone is a garnet, just like mine. And, in spring we will plant pink flowers to remember the blessing that she was, the beauty that she was…and the great blessing that she was from our Lord. 

In Israel, we planted a cypress tree in memory of Jane.

    I my name is Eleanor and I was good friends of your mother Katsia when we were young. I read your sweet blog about your beautiful daughter, loved the photos. I too have had a loss of a child, my 17 year old son Mark, passed 8 years ago. Jesus had plans for him in heaven. During my Grief Umbrella Ministries ( helped me move forward and start to heal and live in a new way (we will never be the same person). Check out their webiste, they have annual and bi-annual retreats each year all over the state and country. I taught a support class for Mom’s who lost children for a couple of years, I’m here if you need any support or help.

    Love in Christ,
