Our Little MeeMoo

This is our daughter Mia Ann. She was born on August 23, 1985. What a wonderful blessing to our family.
Mia is no longer with us now, she left this world on November 15, 1998.

Mia was a beautiful 13 year old girl who wanted to save the world.
She loved to sing, dance, draw, and act, but most of all she loved to take care of children.
Mia was a second mother to her two brothers Kristoffer and Eric. She simply adored them both.
Our oldest son is handicapped with cerebal palsy and whenever he needed help Mia was always there
wanting to help take care of him. She took a CPR class so she could be certified,
in order to help take care of the children at her school,
while the parents and teachers could have their conferences.

We miss Mia and the many firsts she never got the privilage to do,
going out on her first date, her first kiss, prom, graduation, her dream wedding and becoming a mother.
I wonder what she would be doing today, what career would she have chosen out of all the things she loved to do.
Mia always said mommy I'm going to do it all. I believe she would have if she were still here.

Now Mia is a beautiful
watching over us, until we are reunited once again. How wonderful that day will be.

I put a insert in a home paper describing how I felt and I want to share that with you.

I'm not trying to bring anyone down.
I just hope that you live each day to the fulliest, and
let your loved ones know everyday how much they mean to you,
because tomorrow may never come.

Parents who have lost children never recover completely.
It changes your life and how you look at life differently.
The pain never really goes away, we become numb in order to survive, that is what I have done.
I do cherish my family and friends and let them know all the time,
without them I don't know what I would have done.

I just wanted to share my beautiful daughter with you. I love you Meemoo my angel baby.


  1. Sorry for the loss of your daughter. I know too well that we look at life so much different after losing a child. I know what I used to get upset about doesn't matter so much anymore.
    Your daughter was beautiful and even though loss is hard just know that one great day you will see her again. Saying a special prayer for you today and always. {{HUGS}}

  2. I will rejoice the day I get to be with my little angel in heaven, but until then I know I have things to do here and people to take care of...thanks Caroline I really appreciate what you said.
