Dear Cora,

I can't believe it's been 6 years.  Who would you be today?  It's hard not to try to imagine you here with me, my life as it should have been.  I wish I could know what you would have been asking for this year.  Would you be a girly-girl, all ponies, princesses and dolls?  Or would you be a rough-and-tumble tomboy?

I miss you.  More than any words can say.  You have a part of my heart that nothing else can take.  There isn't a day that you don't pass into my thoughts, some way, some how.  I wish I could care for you like I do your siblings, and get comments about you from strangers.  Your hair would be a hit, I just know it.

I love you darling girl. Happy birthday.

Love, Mommy


  1. It looks to me like you guys do a great job in celebrating and remembering your beautiful Cora. I cried through the entire video. It's beautiful.

    Happy birthday Cora.

  2. Hope you have a beautiful remembrance day today. Happy Birthday Beautiful Cora Rei.

  3. Wow, 6 years. I can't imagine being that far out. Yet, I'm sure when I am, I too will think of my girl a million times a day. And love and miss her just as much as I do now, if not more.

    I'm sure it's really tough to have to imagine who she'd be today, especially at age 6 with her own personality coming out so much.

    What a sweet video tribute! Definitely brings tears to my eyes. She was, is, so beautiful.

    Happy Belated Birthday to your sweet Cora Rei. <3
