Happy Valentines, Braxton...

we sure love you!

We had been waiting to go, but the weather hadn't been cooperating, so when we decided to Mk was at basketball practice, but I said that we better go or it would be dark by the time she got home. She was sad she missed it. The girls all love going to visit him and are touched when they go there...

As we were sitting around the little grave talking, K came and sat on my lap with her head turned the other way and after a bit I could tell she was crying. Sometimes when she sees others crying she will begin to cry, but I wasn't. So I asked her what was wrong and she said, "I miss Baby Braxton." It really touched me as to how tender her emotions are. Her school teacher has told me several times that she will make comments about him that touch her also. K knows that he really is her little brother and that she will see him again in heaven. I love your sweet spirit Karli!

I love that you remember and talk about Braxton! He is such a presence in your families life and I love that. I know when we lost KLC it was like the rest of the world went on but our lives we still at a standstill. I still think about him often and the CRAZY that he was. You will be with you little boy again. I am so glad for a Heavenly Father that has promised us these wonderful things.

What a special experience. It's so neat that kids are so close to the spirit and understand what is truly most important.

That made me cry. Heaven really is so close. I once read the quote "Because someone we love is in heaven, we feel heaven in our home" You have great faith, I couldn't have survived death.
