I keep hoping that I will wake from this horrible dream and find Shirley and Johnson holding their precious daughter Carina. This isn't fair....to have Shirley not be able to hold her daughter, hear her first words, watch her first steps, experience the joys that motherhood entails.
Not to long ago, Shirley and I talked about how life changes when you become a mom. Things that were important before, now seem to pale. How you find beauty in small things....a child's smile, a tiny hand. As we talked, Shirley's face beamed with happiness at the thought of embarking on this new adventure.
With her patience, loving heart and gentle way she would have been an amazing mom. Johnson cherish Carina, she is the most precious gift Shirley could have ever given you. Shirley lives on in her.
Shirley, I feel fortunate to have been a part of your life, even if it was only for a short time. Thank you for being a loving and caring Aunt and know that I will alway be there for Johnson and Carina.
I'll miss you.....
