On a {VERY}, sad note

A friend of mine, Niki who I met through Scrapbooking from the US..lost her oldest daughter today, Ellie Rose Willaert.

Here is her story...

On Tuesday April 29th, 2008, our daughter Ellie was diagnosed with a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG); an incredibly aggressive and inoperable tumor in her brain stem. There is no known cure for this rare tumor and only a 10% survival rate.

Then this was posted today...

Our sweet Ellie Rose left this earth tonight at 9:15pm to go home to Jesus. She was surrounded by family and friends and so many who loved her. She raised her right hand to Heaven and I could feel God reach down and carry her safely to His kingdom, where I am confident that she was greeted by many fellow angels. She passed peacefully, while lying between her mama and dada. We love you, sweet little Ellena ~ you will be forever 5, forever whole and forever in our hearts until we meet again.

Niki, this is for you...

Dear Mommy,

Please don't be so sad,
I miss you so much, too.
It's beautiful here where I am
But I worry a lot about you.

I sleep with angels watching me,
There's only love up here...
I'm never lonely or afraid,
'Cause God's so very near.

I walk with Jesus every day
He's very kind and sweet.
Don't worry mom; He holds my hand
When we cross a golden street.

I never cry or hurt myself
I see You everyday...
I play and laugh and sing a lot
And I hear you when you pray.

Please mommy, don't be mad at God
You see, He loves me too,
And even though you're not with me
I'm really still with you.

I just want to send prayers your way over this very trying time. I know that in time you will find an inner peace.

God Bless you all and you are in my thoughts.


  1. I could not have said it any better. God Bless you all.

  2. so very touching Sophia - my heart is broken today with the news of Ellie's passing.

  3. Oh Sophia this is a sad day.
    I am doing a donation and card drive if you want to help spread the word.
    For the family them self. Not the Caring Bridge company but the actual Willeart family.

  4. Oh Sophia, that is absolutely beautiful. Niki will love and treasure it.
