I must tell you, as a board member and director of Share Southern Vermont I read the obits with my coffee every morning. If we come across one like your sweet girl's we reach out immediately.

I read many, daily, but that one was one of the most beautiful tributes I've seen.

Still sending love and support...

Dear Brooke & Joe,
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Annaleigh. I'm sure she knew she was loved by her parents and her siblings. My heart goes out to you both and wish you my sympathies.

Hugs to you all today,

It was beautiful.

Annaleigh was surrounded by love. She will never know hate. Ever. She will left this world the same way she came....loved.

Brooke, you did a loving, angelic job in your tribute to your little Annaleigh. Today was a beautiful accolade to your little angel and I was honored to have been included. Joe, words can not express the way you touched each and every one of us with your graceful testimonial of your angel's too short life. Annaleigh has touch so many lives and she will be remembered...as are Lily and Charlie! Joe and Brooke.... she is loved as are the four of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong, D's.

I don't know you, and I don't really remember how I happened to find your blog. But I have been following your story for a week or so, and I just wanted to tell you that you all have touched me so deeply. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that God will give you the strength you need to get through these tough times. Thank you for sharing your story!!

Thought of you all lots today and sent lots of prayers your way. Hope you are doing as well as you can be these days.

Charlie & Lily are awfully lucky to have parents like you, and a sister like Annaleigh to watch over them. She'll always be there with you all.

- meg & family :)
