Dear Baby Allegra:

You died one week ago today.  We had a lovely funeral for you this week.  Lots of loving family and friends came to celebrate your short, sweet life.  But the only person I wanted to see was you.

Your Mom


  1. I think about her every day. And you, too.

  2. There's a new butterfly bush in the center of the garden outside the back door. It's pink. .


  3. I am so glad I got to see you today. This blog is a beautiful tribute to your sweet daughter. Thank you for sharing your experience in such a beautiful way. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Christi

  4. Just wanted to let you know that Dr.Wilson recommended coming and visiting your website for allegra. She was a beautiful baby who had lots of love and support around her. All of us at North Raleigh Pediatric Group are sorry for your lost and want to send our condolences to you and your family. We hope god will comfort you and your family through the grieving process.

    The sad thing is that longing never completely goes away. However, healing eventually comes with the passage of time and makes things a little "softer" with the knowledge that your eyes will see her again someday. I know that doesn't make today any easier, but it's all we have to cling to. Love and prayers continue.
