A Short Letter to Elaine: We Love You

Elaine,

It was 8 years ago today that I held you, while your mom and I said goodbye to you.

You left us the day before your 3rd birthday. We wanted so much for you to live so we could celebrate your 3rd birthday and many more birthdays with you.

You fought so valiantly in the hospital for 5 long weeks, struggling to stay alive with heart failure, waiting for a heart to come available for a transplant.

After a long valiant struggle your body was finally too tired and worn out. You were so brave and loving through it all. I held you there in a rocking chair as your mom held your hand. We kissed you and said goodbye then you took your last breath.

We miss you little sweetheart.

Love,
Your Mom and Dad
