Words Fail Me

From Jim Ludwig:

"Lillian left this world holding the hand of God at 8:41 pm CST tonight. She peacefully died in our arms as we talked to her telling her how much we love her and how amazing our exactly 100 days to almost the minute were before she had her incident at Daycare.

She then held on for 3 long days as a last gift to us so we could say our goodbyes and let our friends/family say their goodbyes. She was such a little trooper trying to breathe on her own and fight through this. She just could not breath enough to sustain herself on her own after the brain damage. There were glimmers of hope here and there, but the damage to her brain was so devastating from the initial daycare incident, all of her upper brain functions were gone.

Melissa and I will never be the same as sharing our brief time with Lillian has changed us forever. They were the most amazing days of our lives and also the most devastating at the end. Please see the attached pics we took the night before the incident (some are a tad older). She was so happy and so talkative. She was the same the morning we took her to daycare. We have no answers yet except some sort of SIDS-type attack that happened at Daycare.

Please pray for Lillian."

I am crying as I read this post.

Dear Ludwig family,

May you be comforted among all the mourners of Zion. Your precious child is in a place beyond pain, but world is a poorer place without her. May the Almighty comfort you and hold you during this terrible pain. I have just recited my faith's prayer for the mourner's for you all, and my prayers will be with you in the coming months.

With all the love for a fellow human being,

I don't know these people or this baby but I am really, truly full of sadness at this news.

This is such a horrible tragedy. Heartwrenching. I'm so sorry they had to go through such an ordeal. What a beautiful angel.

Aw, hell. That's just not right.

Be well, little one, wherever you end up.

She'll be at the center of my prayers.

So incredibly sad. My heart goes out to them.

How horrible. This seems like every parent's nightmare. My sister is pregnant with her first child...not a story I'd like to share. My heart goes out to them and I hope they can cope with their loss.

God be with the family. There are no words. :(
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:18 am (UTC)
That is really, really sad. I was pulling for the little girl. Pass on our love and support to her parents. As a mother myself, I can't imagine....
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
Words have left me on this sad night. May her beautiful and young soul rest in peace.
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:23 am (UTC)
As a mother myself, I have no words but to hope for the family has strength and love enough to go on.

All my best thoughts to them and their little angel.

My prayers are with your child, you, and your family. May you all be blessed in this hard time. Best wishes and God be with all of you. Take care.

this sadness is boundless. i will say my prayers to the goddess of compassion for little Lillian, and for her grieving parents, whose pain is beyond imagining.
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:39 am (UTC)
Only one hundred days. My prayers will be with Lillian's family.
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:57 am (UTC)
I also have now words to describe the pain this gave me reading it. I cannot imagine the strength it took for the father to tell us all how bravely she fought. This is the height of tragedy for any family. You have my thoughts and condolences. It will be very hard for you guys in the days to come. I cannot imagine how you will cope with that pain. I for one am rooting deeply for you guys.
Jan. 15th, 2009 06:58 am (UTC)
May all the love and light of the universe be with them.
Jan. 15th, 2009 07:04 am (UTC)
No words indeed, my deepest condolences to them, they are in my prayers.
Jan. 15th, 2009 07:04 am (UTC)
My deepest condolences at their loss.
Jan. 15th, 2009 07:08 am (UTC)
My deepest condolences.
Jan. 15th, 2009 07:12 am (UTC)
It's every parent's worst nightmare. I am so sorry for Jim and Melissa's loss.
