Not Goodbye, but See You Later

This post is a letter to Kaitlyn Faith Ham, who shared her beautiful life with our community for 35 precious days, and left to be with her Father in heaven on December 17th.  The story of her journey is found at http://kaitlynham.blogspot.com/

Dear Kaitlyn,

Is it possible to receive a lifetime's worth of love in only 35 days?  We loved you fiercely and intensely, and we will continue to love you until we see you on the other side of eternity.  I wasn't able to meet you or to hold you, but I was honoured and privileged to fight alongside you.  You showed us that the impossible is possible.  You surprised us and overjoyed us with your determination.  You taught us how to let go, even though we didn't want to.  You are missed so much.

You were so small, but already the ripple effects of your life are spreading outwards, forever changing us.  I am praying for your Mom and Dad because even though they are so strong, they miss you most of all.  Aren't you so proud of them?  God made you part of such an amazing family, and it will be so awesome when you are all reunited.  This isn't goodbye little one, because we will see you later, in the place where Jesus will wipe away every tear from our eyes.
