Hold My Heart

We had Alyssa's service Saturday, August 19. It was beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anything better to honor and celebrate Alyssa's life. It was also hard. But having friends and family with us helped tremendously. Jamie and I were able to read poems for our little girl. I don't know how we did it but we did.

It still continues to amaze me at how my little girl has impacted others. Every day when I check the mail there are cards from people I don't know saying how much she has touched them. Thank you to everyone who has thought of us. Your words encourage and comfort us.

Here is a link to a video we showed at her service.


  1. I was just thinking about you earlier today and wondering how you were holding up. Thank you for sharing this beautiful video of your little angel. My thoughs and prayers are with you and your family

  2. Danielle, thank you for sharing this beautiful and intimate video. You and Alyssa's story have touched so many many lives. Thank you and God bless you and your family.

  3. The video was beautiful! Continuing to pray for you and your husband! Lots of love...
