Who's the cutest girl around?

I am a mom of a cutie pie (very biased). And I wanted to share my experiences with others (including my cuties grandparents, great-grandparents, numerous uncles and other relatives). I love being a mom and can't imagine doing anything else.

Memorial Info

In loving memory of our precious little Livi, there will be an open house on Saturday July 28 from 6:00 to 9:00 in the Indiana Junior High School auditorium. All family friends and well wishers are welcome. Plan to be there at 7:00 as the family will be sharing some fun Livi memories. Starting at 6:00 and immediately following the sharing time there will be an opportunity to meet the most courageous, loving parents in the world. Looking forward to seeing you there. Livi's Pa

What a special bond between a girl and her Pa - my heart is full. The reflections at the Lancaster service were so genuine and humble. You are helping to heal us with your blessed memories - may you slowly heal as well.

Praying for Emily and James' safe travel and safe returns -

It was a pleasure to meet you, Pa, while you were in Lancaster last week. Your time sharing about Livi at the service was perfect.

You don't know me, Pa, but I attend James and Emily's church. In fact, I've only spoken to Emily a few times, but consider her a friend. I wanted to echo Tom's words. Your words were PERFECT. It helped us all to start to heal. We hope you are beginning to as well.
PS My son's favorite movie is Grouchland as well, and we will always think of Livi when we watch it.

Still here and praying. I love thinking about Livi's funny moments and her incredible courage. I so want to meet and talk with Emily at some point. Our only trip out of town this summer is next weekend to Wisconsin. I am sooo bummed to be missing anything in honor/memory of Livi, James, Emily, Pa and Gigi. I replay Pa's speech as well as James and Emily's too in my mind so often. We laughed, cried and remebered the only place that will give us eternal hope, peace and love.
If I can do anything for the memorial please let me know. What a nice idea and special tribute to a VERY special little girl.

I won't be able to make it next week and am desperately sad about it!!! I would love to celebrate sweet Livi with you all! The past few comments have left me in anticipation as well. Any way that those precious devotions and healing words could be posted after next week? I, personally, would be incredibly grateful. Praying for comfort for all of you as often as I think of you...which is very.

I totally agree with Christi when she said it would be great to read all of the devotions and healing words from next week. There are so many people who would love to be there to honor beautiful Livi and support her family, but cannot attend for various reasons. I'm sure that this would be a hard thing for James or Emily to do, but if somebody else from the family or a friend could post it, a lot of people would really appreciate it. She was a special little girl who touched some many lives!

I am so glad that there will be an Indiana celebration of Livi. I received a phone call this evening from the Children's Leukemia & Blood Cancer Society, asking me to send out donation requests. I said "yes" with Livi in mind. If there is some other organization that you would like us to contribute to in Livi's memory, please let us know. I can't help thinking of the "cutest girl" and how she and all of you enriched the lives of so many through your sharing.

What a wonderful group of people there! We were only there 6 mos. or so, but still remember them with much fondness. I'm sure God will speak healing and comfort through that body. Our prayers continue here. What a perfect picture of a girl and her Pa.
with much affection, Kristin

James and Emily,
Thoughts and prayers are with you and your families as you mourn the loss, yet celebrate and remember the life of your sweet baby girl. Although I've never met any of you, my heart grieves with you. Reading your blog was such an encouragement as I read of your continued faith despite your trials and pain. May you experience the love of Christ even more deeply and continue to rely on Him in everything.

When God calls little children to dwell with him above, We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.For no heartache compares with the death of one small child Who does so much to make our world seem wonderful and mild. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold, So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but a few To make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try, The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye". So when a little child departs, we who are left behind must realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

One of my friends had mentioned your blog and I spent the last hour reading it. Please accept my condolences to you and your family on the homegoing of your little one Livi. She sounded like a wonderful little girl and your love for her is so apparent throughout your blog. I've added your family to my prayers.

Dear Haughery's and Allen's:
Tonight's service was such a beautiful tribute to Livi, and I was honored to be there. Through Livi and your love and care for her, I have learned so much about sacrificial love. The uncles' stories were wonderful and "Pa" and "De Dad" is was so neat to hear you talk of your precious Livi. James and Emily, you are in our prayers, and will continue to be so. Livi firmly cemented your family into our heart.

I first heard of Alivia when you had the bone marrow drive in Lancaster. My friends and I came and since then have followed her story. Even though I never met any of you, I was so sad when I heard the news. I know Heaven is a brighter place with her sweet face. I can't think of anything to say other than I am so sorry for your pain and loss. Your story has been such an inspiration of faith and love. I pray for strength and comfort for your family.

What a beautiful way to celebrate the life of your precious little Livi! Throughout this journey I have been amazed and inspired by your strength, courage, and faith, and last night was no different. Just listening to her tributes and watching all of you together showed what a strong, supportive, AMAZING family you all have. Alivia was so lucky to be born into such a family! Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to meet you and for sharing with us the life of one very special little girl. You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.

With Love,
