Sad March

 This has been a very sad March.  Two weeks ago today, we lost our good friend Yoda.  He went unexpectedly to the Bridge, but he went peacefully in his sleep.  Then we found out that our blogger buddy Payton was not doing well.  She has fought the odds and survived 9 years with PDE.  This is usually a horrible disease that is quickly fatal.  But her parents did everything they could for her and got her the best care possible.  Unfortunately, she had been having breathing problems and they diagnosed it as a collapsing trachea and last night she was put in an oxygen tent to help her breathe.  This morning she went peacefully with her parents at her side.

We only had the pleasure of meeting little Payton once when she came to Ellie's birthday party last fall, but we remember her as a spunky little girl with a heart of gold.  These are some pictures of both Yoda and Payton from Ellie's birthday party.  Mama didn't get very good pictures of either of them, but at least they look happy and that's how we want to remember them.

We're sure Yoda had everything all ready for Payton when she arrived at the Bridge this morning and the both of them are showering love down on us.

Love,
Meredith & Scarlet

This is a very special tribute to both Yoda and Payton.
They were both very special to all of us.
Now we need to heal our broken hearts, and help their familys.
love

It is indeed a sad month. I miss Payton and I didn't know Yoda but I can see that Yoda was great!
