      I watch the news and they show pictures of the makeshift memorials for the Sandy Hook kids & it just breaks my heart all over again.

        Pine cones for the mountains, white beads for snow, white crystals for ice..the star for her  life that burned bright, purple her favorite color, and white for remembrance.

          appreciated! You help us get through all of this with your thoughts and actions.  Mr. Light and I spent a little time with some of my family yesterday morning and had a pretty good time. Most of the younger generation wasn't there because they had to work but that's how it is.

          We're all going to be together for the funeral later this month.   They finally released Jessica's body and we'll be gathering for a private graveside service and then having a celebration of her life later that afternoon/evening.

              upcoming trial, and we told them to keep her as long as they needed her. Now we have a chance to put her to rest, on her 11th birthday, and have a smaller celebration of life gathering afterwards. I believe all you who care for us and think of us are giving us strength when we need it most. Thanks for that!
