(taken Jan 1, 2012)
This morning at 5:45am, our sweet Ava went to celebrate her first birthday in Heaven. We were able to hold her for three peaceful hours before she slipped away but miss her terribly already. After a difficult morning of saying goodbyes, Matt and Elizabeth spent the afternoon and evening in the Emergency Room where she was diagnosed with pneumonia. Thankfully, she was released tonight and is able to be treated at home. We are so grateful for your prayers and will post information about a service for Ava as soon as it's available.
