Sending Kisses to Heaven

A Williams Syndrome family member was taken to heaven last week. Baby Corbin was just 3 months old. It brings me to my knees every time one of their sweet souls are taken from this earth.

We have an amazing WS support group and whenever a child is taken everyone releases a certain color of balloons. Corbin's color is red. We then all post pictures. Hailey sent baby Corbin's balloons with kisses on them hoping they would make it to his sweet little cheeks.

I can't even imagine what this family is going through. Here is a link to hear Corbin's should probably grab a box of Kleenex. I haven't cried that hard in awhile.

Strawberry Love

We got to go to Florida last week for my grandma Squire's memorial service. It turned out to be a huge family reunion and we had such a great time! We were in the pool or at the beach 90% of the time! It was so good to see our extended family and just wish we got to see them more often!

Grandma always loved strawberries! They were all over her house. Amy had the opportunity to tell her that she would have the girls wear strawberry dresses for her funeral. It was very special and thank you to Amy for making them!

The memorial service was so special. My sisters and mom sang the same song that they sang at my and Nate's wedding. The main thing I kept hearing people say about my grandma was that she was known for being so sweet! What a great way to be remembered! We miss you grandma and can't wait to see you again in heaven!

It's always a crazy time when the Burg siblings are around!
