Letter to Ivanka Rose, from Tatjana Caruso

To my daughter Ivanka Rose,

Words can't express how much we miss your little face and button nose. It's been less than 3 months but feels like a lifetime ago since we last held you. I still ask myself why things had to be this way, but I know God had bigger plans for you. I hope you know how much joy you have brought into our lives, from the moment we found out I was pregnant with you we were ecstatic, the whole family was so eager to meet you. The 8 1/2 months I carried you will forever be etched in my heart, who knew that would be all the time we got together in this lifetime? Those months were some of the happiest months of my life, and even though they ended in the greatest heartbreak, I would gladly do them all over again just to have the chance to feel you kick one last time. I wish I could've heard you cry or have been able to look into your eyes, I think back often to the few precious hours we got to hold you and regret not holding you longer, but your daddy reminds me often that no amount of time would've been sufficient and I wholeheartedly agree. Once we are together again in heaven I know I will never have to let go again. I hope grandma Rose and Uncle Calogero are taking good care of you and telling you all about your daddy and me, I also hope Elvis is singing you lullabies. 

Thank you for showing me and your daddy what it means to love unconditionally. We want you to know that we love you beyond words, you will always hold a very special place in our hearts and you will never be forgotten my love.

We love you to the moon and back!

Always & Forever,
Your Mommy and Daddy

Letter to Lilly, from Lela Sharp

Lilly Delora Brinson,

Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we miss you every day. You were a blessing in our lives even though you weren't with us long. We can't wait to see you and hold you when we meet in Heaven... until then, we're holding you in our hearts.

So much love,
Mommy and Daddy

Letter to Braxton, from Danielle AraneoBraxton Allen, 

Hello my beautiful son. I think about you every day. Daddy and I talk about you all the time. We even blow you kisses all the time right where we have your memorial set up in our room. I can't believe this February will be one month since you came and went. You've touched so many lives with how much love you've shown us. I can't help but look at daddy and smile all the time, you look just like your daddy, including that beautiful smile. 

We continue to keep you alive throughout our lives, and of course you've always in our hearts. 

I hope you also got the balloons we sent you to heaven. I know you had them coming to you from all over. Grandma and grandpa are so proud of you, just like us. I don't think we could of ever asked for more from you. Heaven in so far away but I know you're in good hands. I hope you hearing good things about us. I'm sure you've heard some stories about daddy mommy hasn't even heard from uncle Matt. I also wanted to let you know I always get the subtle ways of making sure I know you are with me, and I want you to know I'm so thankful for that. 

I love you Braxton, I've learned so much from you. I never ever imagined I'd be a mother, and here you came into my life, a little miracle. You give me so much strength in everyting I do. It's because of you I've become the person I am. I'm not the same person I was before. I have so much love in my heart and soul. I have so much passion for life and everything has changed. I wish you were here, but I've accepted you had to go to heaven. The amount of love you've spread across our family and friends has made me realize what it truly important. I just want you to know how much I love you, and how much I miss you. You'll be in my heart forever. There will never be a day I stop thinking about you.

I love you, sending all the kisses in the world to you my beautiful baby braxton. 

Love for eternity, I can't wait to see you again. And next time I do I'm going to hold you and never let you go.
Your mommy always
