Sorry to hear of your loss. My family has experienced several battles with cancer and I know the struggle is long and difficult. Sorry we could not attend the funeral, but we were out of town on vacation and just got back late last evening. Renee sent me an email to let me know of your loss.

Best wishes and many prayers.

Dear Rod,

I have met you through our joint parish council. Although I have not met your family, I feel as though I have as they have been a true inspiration to me. Your faith life is an example to all and I'm sure has helped carry you through this extremely difficult time. Here's hoping that my thoughts and prayers for Alaina and your family helped in some small unknown way to ease your burden.
With continued prayers may our dear Lord keep your family in His loving care.

My deepest condolences,
Roseann (& husband Leo) Schraufnagel

Words of condolence are insufficient when one so beautiful and graceful as your Alaina is taken from you.
Adding my prayers to those who also ask that through your strong faith in God and each other you will make it through this difficult time. Alaina now has her wings!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and friends who will miss their precious child who everyone loved so dearly. She is smiling and without pain now with her loving Savior, Jesus. She is looking down on all of those she knew and loved and is finally free of pain and sufferings. The memory of her great love and wonderful sweetness for her family, friends, pets and nature will live on with all who knew her.

Dear Janssens, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl. I was so lucky to have been her godmother and to witness her journey. I remember meeting her when she was born, holding her and thinking she was the most beautiful baby in the world. She was the sweetest girl and wise beyond her years. Her smile could light up a room. In her short time here on earth, she taught me so much about life. She showed me how to live in the moment, to see the bright side of things, to always have a craft project or two in the works and how to face life with grace and gentleness. Much love to all of you. XOXO

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear. May you find comfort in the hands of angels. Your memory will live in our hearts forever.

So sad to hear that you didn't win the battle against cancer, but was also so inspired by reading about how you lived your young life since Thanksgiving. I'll miss seeing your smile and hearing about how you're fighting every day to live life to the fullest.
