Happy 3rd Birthday! I finally feel like I've found some stable ground since losing you. I think of you each and every day. It is no different from the way I wonder about your siblings, and think of them when they are all gone for a week to the grandparents. But you are gone a lot further away, for a lot longer. There are still times that I cry, but they are pretty rare these days.

Britt probably talks about you the most. When we were studying ancient India we read about a holiday where sisters make their brother a special bracelet out of brightly colored thread and small beads to show their love and respect, and the brother promises to always protect and look out for them. He insisted that we make a bracelet for you too. So he has a bracelet that Ruth made, Rebecca made, that he made for Kate, and a bracelet made from the leftover thread from the stocking I made for you.

|2/4/2018, We finally remembered to bring Abigail's|
candy cane from Christmas to her. And everyone ate them together.

We love you,
