Sweet little angel

There are no words to describe this little bear. She was only here for a short time, but touched so many people while she was. She finished a long fight with cancer yesterday at 2:30 in the morning while she lay with her mommy and daddy in their bed.
I was blessed enough to have been able to take her pictures when they first discovered she was sick. And then subsequently got to rejoice with them when Aubrey received a liver transplant and was believed to be cancer free. Just a few short months ago, they found out the cancer had returned in full force and Aubrey would be earning her angel wings much before anyone here would have liked. She touched my heart and it all felt so close having a baby who was only 2 weeks different in age. She has made me hug on all of my babies a little tighter, and savor these moments I have with them. Her daddy has said, "maybe that was her purpose in life," because more than once he has heard that.
Her mom said what a hero Aubrey had been to her, but what an amazing family they all are, that so many people including myself are so blessed to know.
I know little baby girl is up in heaven running and dancing around, and snuggling up in her heavenly father's arms.
I pray for peace that surpasses all of our understanding to surround her family until they are all running around in heaven swinging their little baby around,..'healthy and whole.'

I am attaching an email from Michelle (Aubrey's mom). I know it will touch your hearts as it did mine.

Aubrey was the love of my life (along with Maddie of course!). It was hard to let her go, but I knew in my heart that it was for the best because now she can run around like she deserves, pain free and cancer-free. She truly was our Angel here on Earth, and Jeremy and I were so very blessed to be her parents. She will always be on our minds and in our hearts, wherever we go, whatever we do.

God bless all of you wonderful people who loved her so much. It has truly touched our hearts how much all of you have cared for her and prayed for her (and all of us, too).

While we were resting last night, Jeremy and I were holding Aubrey's hands, and she squeezed Jeremy's fingers right before she took her last breath, as if to say "it's okay daddy, I've seen the Angels, I'm going to be okay now". It was heartwrenching to watch her take her last breaths, I have to be honest, but I'm so glad that both Jeremy and I were there with her.

Thank you all again, so very much for your faithful prayers, love and support for all of us. We hope to see you Saturday. God bless.
