In memory

Yesterday I was numb. Today I am crying and hurting unbelievably.

Memories. Regrets. Joys. Tears. Overwhelming loss and sadness, mixed with happy memories.

Cheyenne Rose McManigal
March 30, 1991 - November 17, 2015
Cheyenne and her cousin Kyla (whose birthday is tomorrow)

  3. Kent, I know you may not remember me but I worked with Deborah for a long time at SVI. I remember very well when Cheyenne was born, and my heart is broken for all of you. I hope that you will pass my condolences to Deborah. --Becky Young

  4. Kent, so sorry to receive the news about Cheyenne. You have my deepest sympathy. She was a beautiful young lady, and very special to my Jennifer. Sending my love to you and your family.

  5. When ever I asked advice from friends and family on how to raise my children, one frequent answer was " there's no book" on how to raise you children. As someone that has also lost a child, I have no advice, there's no book, you just have to make it through any way you can. I know you will cause you have two beautiful Grand Babies that need you right now. My Prayers go out to you and yours.

  6. Sir, I knew Cheyenne. Mario is one of my husband's best friends. You may have known Nick at some point. I really, really liked Cheyenne. The few times I got to spend with her were great. We connected, something I don't find much in people. So...I know she was special. I am very sorry for your loss. Your family is in my family's thoughts. This has truly upset me...and I will miss the times I should have spent getting to know her more.

  9. Kent, I've never experienced the loss of a child so I won't pretend to know what you're going through. I just want to let you know that even though we've never met personally I can only imagine your anguish. My heart is with you.

  10. Kent, I am so sorry to hear this. Even the thought of it does things to my insides for which there are no words.

    I know you only virtually and am thousands of miles away anyway, but I am sending you every bit of good will I can coax out of the muse.

  11. Thank you all very much. I will be OK- well, as OK as I can be with the new reality.

    A good friend of mine who lost her husband in a car wreck a year and a half ago told me that it never heals, but it scabs over. I'm sure that scab will get knocked off many times in future years.

    The condolences I have received really do make me feel loved. Thank you all very much. Really!
