September 21, 2012

Author’s note:  This blog post will describe Isabella’s last days.  It will be lengthy and portions will be difficult to write (and read).  Some content may be more personal than I would normally put (especially some pictures that may be upsetting to some).  But just as with the rest of the blog, I write not just to keep you informed, but for myself in that it is both therapeutic and allows me to not forget.

Because of this, I decided to split this post.  To read the entire post, click the title above.

Isabella’s Video

Here is the video that we played at Isabella’s wake displaying lots of highlights from her life.  It’s pretty lengthy at an hour and ten minutes, so you may want to grab some popcorn (and some tissues!)  Youtube may also take it down at any time since it does contain a bunch of commercial music.

Isabella Laid To Rest

Today, we laid our little Isabella to rest, amid a sea of bright and beautiful colors.  It has been an utterly exhausting week.  Give me a couple days and I’ll post something about the services.  In the meantime, enjoy this photo of a lantern that we lit at the cemetery in her honor.
