How can one accept the loss of a child this age? One can only believe she is now in a much better place, free of all pain and suffering. She is a cute little lady who I am sure had all the people who knew her, wrapped around her little finger. She will live forever in your hearts and memories.
Lean on each other and may the peace God be with you all.

Amy Jo and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I never got to meet your little sweetheart but I got to see your updates on her and follow her journey. She is now in the hands of our Lord and I know she is dancing and singing with him.
We want to send you our condolences for Hadley leaving this earthly life. Heaven gained a beautiful and sweet angel. Our hearts go out to all of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Sending you much love and many hugs. May God bless you and comfort you.
I would like to express my condolences to you for the loss of your daughter, sister and granddaughter, little Haddley. It seems so unfair that sickness and death should be able to take away someone you love, especially when they didn’t even have the opportunity to experience life for long. But God’s Word, the Bible, holds out a hope that it is possible to be reunited with Haddley in the near future, right here on earth under peaceful conditions. And at that time all people will have the prospect of enjoying perfect health and never having to die again. Jesus promised at John 5:28 that millions now dead will live again on this earth. This is the promise of a resurrection of our dead loved ones. And since Jesus made this promise, we can be certain that he is both willing and able to fulfill it. Once again, I express my deepest sympathy.
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter. She was a little cutie. Now she is a beautiful little angel playing in heaven. You have a blessed angel watching over you and her family. Just know that she is in no pain and in good hands. Many thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the good Lord give you peace and help you to get through this tough time in your lives. May God bless and keep you in his hands.
Sending Haddley’s entire family love and light. You are all in my prayers.
My thoughts & prayers are with Haddley’s family during this time. May they find healing in the grace & peace of God through his light & love.
Nancy and Loran out thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time, God bless you all.
Your journey has been long and hard.. Rest now knowing your precious child is in the arms of Jesus. My love and prayers for peace and strength are with you all.
Praying for God’s grace to be sufficient through this journey. Haddley impacted many people and will continue to give you opportunities to reach out to others in the days to come. Praying for your family!
There are not words…but we want you to know how very, very sorry we are for your loss. What a heartbreaking story and we pray for comforting peace for all of Haddley’s family. What a little doll she was; and her beautiful smile, that showed her love for all of you. God bless and keep you, and give you strength. Our deepest sympathies to all.
