Kate's Angel Day

It's really hard to believe that January 15 marked 6 years.   Days that have flown by...but at the at the same time...seems like forever since I held my baby girl.

It was a special day this year...Kate's Kart had been in a contest with 3 Rivers Federal Credit Union. A stranger had made an amazing video about Kate's Kart...her daughter Briley stared in it.  There was about 3 weeks of voting online...and we came in 2nd.   However..due to Jess's connection with 3 Rivers, she withdrew from the contest...but 3 Rivers still awarded us our check.

The celebration was that morning.  What a great way to remember our Kate...but receiving a check and meeting this sweet family.  My mom and I went because Andy was still recovering from knee surgery that he had on Monday, the 13th.  I so wished he could have been there. 

We sent our  traditional letters to Kate via the balloons from the celebration. 

And....celebrated our little girl with ice cream after church.

I am just so thankful that we have such positive outlets to remember makes the grieving, even 6 years much easier.   We miss you sweet girl...we're 1 day closer to hugging you again.
