Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart.
Oh, give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars.


Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares.


Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless.
Please remember me


From the song Dante's Prayer by Loreena McKennitt

I never feel like I have a place to say anything, but just be sure that family is out there thinking of both of you.

Amy! It's April Hardy- I married Drew Hardy, Eldon Larson's old room mate- (I found you through Jessica's blog) you and your husband are in our thoughts and prayers. My heart breaks with yours, and I offer little words of comfort. What a blessing it is to know that families are eternal, and you will be with sweet Ella again.

Oh Amy, I heard from Marie and my heart just hurts. I know I can't say anything that will make it better, but I'm praying for you and your husband. Please remember that families are forever and that your Heavenly Father loves you so, so much! I just love you and look up to you. I'm blessed to have you in my life, even if it's just in the blogosphere.
