Oh Jenny...what an amazing smile she had! I can't believe it's been five years. I remember checking on our site every morning and every night to see how Allie's day went...always hoping for happy news. I cried and cried the night she passed...went and held my own baby girl (who was just 3 months older than Allie) for hours that night. You are such a special woman Jenny...the work you continue to do in Allie's memory is such a loving tribute to her. I hope that whatever you do tomorrow you will have peace in your heart knowing your baby girl was and continues to be sooooo loved! I'll be thinking about you tomorrow.

Jenny,
My daughter was born 3 weeks before Allie. I followed Allie's story on BabyCenter, and to this day, think about your lovely daughter and your family often. Just tonight, I was driving and heard the song, "Wake Me Up When September Ends". Immediately I thought of you and your sweet Allie. I hope you know that people both near and far continue to remember your amazing little girl and her radiant smile.

Love this! Love that girl. I echo all the comments above. She'll never be forgotten, and always loved! Thanks for all you do.

It's so hard to believe that it's been 5 years already. I still think of you and sweet Allie often. I remember feeling so devastated for you when I logged on the day after my daughter's birthday and saw that your precious Allie had passed. Allie was truly a very special little girl. She touched so many.

Wow, hard to believe it's been 5 years! I followed Allie's story that whole summer and shortly after I moved to Austria she passed away. I remember being so far away and yet I had tears rolling down my face for this precious baby. Thinking of you!

Amy said...

My thoughts are with you. I know how hard tomorrow is. I hope the day treats you well and know we are all thinking of you, Andrew, Allie, Maggie and their new baby sister! {{{HUGS}}}

Tomorrow is also a day of rememberance for me. My grandfather died a year ago tomorrow.

What a beautiful girl! I still can't believe it's been 5 years. It honestly seems like yesterday that I came to the parking lot of the hospital for the candlelight vigil, praying for your sweet girl. She has been the one, true inspiration I've had to launch into raising awareness for pediatric cancer. I started out by volunteering for the Light the Night walks, continued into Make A Wish Foundation, and finally started doing event organization for St. Baldrick's for the past 2 years. You're girl truly has a remarkable impact on society!

Thinking of you and yours today, Jenny. Love that picture of Allie's beautiful smiling face.

Jenny, thinking of you and your family today as well....I'm so proud that I can honor Allie's memory in ANY way, and I'm a better person today for having you and Allie touch my life.

Wanted to drop in to say, I too am thinking about you Jenny and your family today! Also know your Blue eyed girl will always be remembered! Five years of donating blood for me because of Allie, she has touched so many lives. Hope you have a wonderful day, despite the rain. (Will it ever stop?) Hugs from Fort Worth!

I too have been along for the ride since almost the very beginning of Allie's struggles. I sat hit refresh a million times that night she recieved her wings, and then sobbed for her when it was indeed posted.

5 years....wow.

Seeing pictures of Allie's beautiful face always make me smile...she was (and always will be) a very special girl who touched many hearts in her short time here on earth.

Thinking of you always.
