The story of her life made a deep impact on my own. What a strange time we live in, when a person like me can follow along and bear witness to the most intimate and heartbreaking moments of a person's existence. The fact you played this out publicly is unusual, although it's the type of thing that is becoming less unusual by the minute. The fact that you did it with such poetic and powerful language makes Willa's story truly one-of-a-kind. Thank you for giving us all the chance to know both of you. I'm sorry for your unimaginable loss.

To say that I'm sorry for your loss is a gross understatement. I am glad for Willa that she is no longer in any whisper of pain, but heartbroken at the pain you have to bear in losing her.

Thank you for sharing her, and your, story. She is in the hearts of so many, and will not be forgotten.

I am so sorry.

Jen said...

Sweet Willa. She will be remembered, and missed.

Wishing you strength and peace.

I have no doubt Willa will be forever loved and forever missed. I hope you and your husband find a way to survive this, and that you keep writing.

And many thanks for having shared Willa's story. There may not be any happy endings when it comes to our chronically ill children, but you and Willa showed me a kind of grace that I can only hope to have when our time to say goodbye finally arrives.

I've been checking every few days, hoping not to see a new post. Now I have.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I will miss her.

You're a wonderful mama and you always will be.

Thank you so much for teaching, sharing, and loving the way you do.

Your love for Willa, and the prose through which you shared her life and your love, have had a profound and lasting impact on me. I am deeply sorry that Willa is gone. I cried when I read this. For what little it is likely worth to you right now... thank you for sharing her with me.

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Much love and comfort for you- it's not right that you should lose such a shining light in your life so soon after it was lit. She will be remembered- your words are so..well I don't have the words. Your loss is unbearable- may you find peace- she would want to see you smile again one day.

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I think of you often and keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
I wrote a little poem a few months day when Willa was on my mind and I wanted to share it with you.
Much Love,

Willa’s Smile

I only met her once that day

And she smiled at me

As if to say…….

I am Willa

I’ll be okay
