Every picture I see of this beautiful little girl always makes me tear up. She is so beautiful, happy, lovable and those eyes tell the world how loved she is. I have a heavy heart for you and your family today (and everyday for that matter). I will never understand why little ones are taken are so young . . . :(.
April 7th, 2011 at 7:48 am
She IS a star. I like that thought, shining down brightly during the darkest hours. Even when it’s cloudy and you can’t see her clearly. She’s still sparkling. Much love to you during these dark days.

Those eyelashes! Oh, such a pretty baby!!
I wore purple today, too.
Missing Maddie…though I’ve never met her. She really has touched so many people.
Wishing you much peace today. We are wearing purple at our house today and thinking of you and your sweet family.
April 7th, 2011 at 11:24 am
I did not think it was possible to miss someone whom you had never met, but this sweet lil pumpkin is missed so very much. I am sure she is shining down on her family. Missing Maddie too!

Hi Heather! I am that crazy lady from BlogHer last year that came up to you at your party to tell you about her near death experience and my meeting with Sylvia Browne! I just wanted to make sure I told you today that Maddie can hear you, see you, feel you. I long for the place she is in–I was there when I was 8. My vivid memories are constant reminders that loved ones that have passed are not far and in euphoria. Just as your love for her is timeless, hers is too. May God comfort you and Mike today, and that you find comfort in knowing she is with you in spirit always. Nothing can ever take that away.
Thinking of you. Weeping for you.
April 7th, 2011 at 9:35 pm
She is the brightest star of all. May you dream sweet dreams of your angel tonight. I wish she was in your arms where she belongs.
Love and prayers for you all.
April 8th, 2011 at 1:34 pm
My heart leaps out and envelopes you. I cannot even begin to fathom what you are going through on a daily basis, minute by minute, second by second. I really cannot.
My nephew James was born 12 weeks early, weighing just over 2lbs. He was in the NICU for 11 weeks and is now thriving and hitting all his adjusted developmental markers. He turns 1 on April 26th. I met him for the first time exactly 1 month ago because I was living overseas (USA) and had to move back to South Africa because my visa ran out.
Because of your Maddie I donate to March of Dimes. Because of Maddie I truly appreciate every moment we have with him. He has health problems and his lungs are only going to be at the levels they would have been had he not been a premie when he is 2 or 3 years old. I worry about him every day – does he have a sniffle? Is he running a fever?
My brother and sis-in-law are still traumatised from their time in the NICU – watching this tiny person fight every day, sitting around hoping it would work out.
I truly believe that Maddie was up in heaven, cheering him on, willing him to grow and thrive and get better so he could go home.
My deepest condolences are zipping across the hemispheric divide from South Africa – I am so deeply sorry that your Maddie is gone. I can’t believe it has been 2 years.
April 10th, 2011 at 11:12 pm
Those eyes, that face, her smile… I miss her for you! She is beautiful. My heart goes out to your family.
Do you write about your very specific Maddie memories or dreams? I could see where that could be helpful, especially since you and Mike are both writers. I can appreciate that you wouldn’t share those with the interwebs, though. I hope that your dreams are filled with sweet thoughts and memories of both of your girls.
