Today’s Angel is Brianna Sharp. Brianna was a lively 7th grader when last fall she was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a highly aggressive brain tumor. She went to heaven surrounded by her family on July 25, 2009.
Her father Matt said she had a contagious smile and laugh. She would laugh at his jokes even when they were not that funny.
Brianna kept a daily blog where she has chronicled her battle with cancer. She also describes her life with family and friends.
Brianna is loved and missed by her family, friends and all who knew her. Please say a prayer for Brianna and her family.
Please continue to pray for Lolly Pop Kid and our families. We now have answers as to why Lolly went to Heaven. I will not post that here. The information does not make me feel better. It just breaks my heart more and gives my brain more stuff to think about.
Today is also the start of Childhood Cancer Awarness Month. This is near and dear to my heart because Butterfly once battled Leukemia and won! Please take a moment to think about the littlist warriors today and through the month.
Angel Tuesday profiles Asa Imad Mayle who became and angel on January 4, 2007. He was 6 years old and in the first grade. Asa was hit by a school bus as he was crossing the street.
Asa was an inquisitive little boy with a big kool-aid smile and big brown eyes. He liked his clothes nice and neat and he especially loved his belt.
He once asked his mommie, “If Batman can’t fly why does he have a cape?” Good question.
Asa even at his young age would talk about growing up, getting married and going to college. He wanted to go to Ohio State. He also new what kind of car he would like to own. Asa wanted a PT Cruiser. Spotting PT Cruisers became a game for Asa. He would shout “PT Cruiser I saw it you missed it!!”
Asa is loved and missed by his family and always will be. Please take a moment to visit his beautiful memorial made in loving memory of Asa by his mommie.
Today’s Angel Tuesday child is Ethan who became an Angel on July 26, 2008. He went to heaven because of a horrible drowning accident.
Ethan, a beautiful 6 year old with a smile that exudes radiant energy and a huge open-mouth laugh that delighted everyone. All that knew Ethan commented on his smile.
On what would have been Ethan’s 7th Birthday his family held a Global Star Wars party where many people from all over the world watched the movie Star Wars.
Ethan is and will always be very much loved and missed by his family. His mom Lisa keeps a blog where she has written so beautifully about Ethan, her family’s loss and how they manage the “new normal.” Lisa is also a wonderful photographer as there are many poignant photos of Ethan and her family.
Please visit Hey Jude. Please keep this family in your prayers.
Please also remember our Angel Lolly Pop Kid.
I had a lot of trouble starting this post. I am not sure why. Maybe because I wish I did not have to. I did not realize how many children die each day. To be honest it was not something I wanted to think about. Nobody does.
Today is seven weeks since Lolly Pop Kid became an angel. Today is another Angelversary.
So I will try and bring a new child each week either an angel or a child with an illness. Please pray for these children and their families. Visit their blogs or sites and if possible leave a message.
The pain does not go away and it does not get better. It helps when people reach out.
Here is Lolly’s memorial site.
I wish I could open the door and pick you up and hug away the tears.
