Today was probably the worst day possible for us as grandparents. We attended the services for Heavenlee today and as services go, it was pretty good. Seeing our beloved granddaughter lying there, looking very much like a porcelain doll was the most difficult thing we have ever done as grandparents. We Love her and will miss her for the rest of our days here on Earth!

It's very difficult to find anything to be thankful for today. Last night at 1:07am, our grandaughter, Heavenlee Angel Skie Johns passed away at the age of 8 from complications associated with her accident 3 years ago. I can't begin to express my sorrow, as well as my wife Amanda's at losing such a precious part of our lives. We were permitted to visit her last night, knowing that she would soon leave us and we are grateful for being allowed to say goodbye to Heavenlee. My only comfort is that we will be surrounded by loving family members today as we gather to remember the good times Heavenlee brought to our lives. Cooking the Thanksgiving dinner has been a help in taking my mind off of just how very sad I feel right now. In the coming days, we will begin to heal and move forward, making sure never to forget just how wonderful a granddaughter she truly was.
