This Little Light of Mine....

We would like to thank our dear friends and fellow bereaved parents Alisa and Mike for having us over for a very special dinner last night! Not only did we get to spend some quality time together we also lit some very special candles in honour of our daughter Emersyn who passed away last April from SMA Type 1 at the age of 7 months and in honour of Mason, Mike and Alisa's beautiful son who passed away from Cancer last January at the age of 8 months old. We also lit a dragonfly candle in honour of all children that are living with SMA or Cancer and for those precious angels who have been taken by these terrible diseases.

Mason must be so proud of his mommy, daddy and beautiful baby sister Ella as they continue to remember, honour and connect with him in everything that they do. We could truly feel Mason and Emersyn's light and love with us during our visit as we believe our angels are together and are good friends by now.

Jason and I so badly wish that Mike and Alisa did not belong to this 'club' that no parent ever signs up to be a part of, however we are so grateful to know them and be able to lean on each other through our grief journey's. Thank-you for such a special night, we feel so close to Emersyn and Mason when we are with you guys and that is such a precious gift.

"This Little Light of Mine I'm Going to Let it Shine"..... for Emersyn, Mason and all of the beautiful children that have been affected by SMA and Cancer.......

Many thanks to Alisa and Mike for a great night and to everyone who participated in the candle lighting ceremony last night; we hope your evening was as special as ours.

Melanie, Jason and Emersyn xoxoxo

  1. I too am sorry any of you are in this situation, but also glad you have people who you can lean on, talk to and support one another. It sounds like a lovely evening and I know Emersyn and Mason are both so proud of their parents! Hugs, Em
