Video Tribute to Annaleigh

video

We made this video and played it at the viewing. Brooke has talked about playing this beautiful song ("Lullaby" by the Dixie Chicks) for our babies since we found out she was pregnant. We thought it was fitting.

I've had this song in my head all day. I sometimes sing it to my boys, but I will always think of it as Annaleigh's song.

My Dear Joe ane Brooke,

After another three times viewing of this special video tribute to Annaleigh I finally heard the lyrics. (You cannot hear the words through your sobs) These words are so true. Annaleigh will be loved forever by you and by each one of us. You created that love so much more for everyone because of how you shared so much. You have done an excellent job all around - from the beginning and you will continue. I am so proud of both of you. But most importantly your children are so proud of their Mommy and Daddy and that is a gift that you have well earned.

All My Love, Auntie :)

It's an understatement to call it beautiful. I am sobbing, just sobbing. She is a beautiful baby who was and is so loved. I am so sorry you had to let her go, but I know you will hold onto her forever in your hears.

Thank you for sharing her with the world.

Such an amazing video for an amazing baby girl. She was so lucky to be loved by so many, most of whom have never met her. The song was beautiful, however, I am going to have to listen to it again to actually hear the words. Annaleigh, Charlie and Lily are so lucky to have the two of you as their mom and dad.
