Rosemary Beatrice C. passed away today, Mother's Day, May 9, 2010.
Rosie was a blessing to this earth for right around a month.
Rosie was the niece of my little sister (Her husband's brother's daughter). She was the first child of Dan and Holly, and the first grandchild in the family. Holly had a picture perfect pregnancy with just a bit of low amniotic fluid at the end. Shortly after Rosie was born a heart murmur was detected. Rosie was taken from one hospital to another, finally winding up at the University of Michigan. It was found that she had some VERY serious issues with her heart that would require several surgeries. Rosie made it through the first surgery but just couldn't fight all the complications that arose thereafter. In the end, her heart gave out, her liver quit working and her kidneys failed. Rosie never made it home to see the room that was so lovingly prepared for her. I do believe that she now is sitting in the arms of Jesus while He sings her a sweet, sweet lullaby!
Please pray for my family and Rosie's family. Please especially pray for Holly (Rosie's mom) that she can handle the loss on such a monumental day for Mothers everywhere!
Always take the road less traveled,
