Baby Brie November 11, 2008 - November 13, 2008


One of my best friends, Alicia Nicole Mack, now Alicia Dils was pregnant, due in February 2009. Her and her husband Matt were moving to Richmond Virginia when Alicia went into labor. Her little baby girl was born on November 11, 2008 somewhere in Texas. They named her Gabrielle Nicole, after her mommy! She was 14 weeks early...

Baby Brie passed away last night at about 2:30 am due to internal bleeding. Alicia told me that the doctors knew she wouldn't make it, so they got to hold her before she passed.

Baby Brie must have been a very special spirit, so much so that it was only neccesary for her to come to earth and obtain a body, and then return home to our Heavenly Father. Alicia and Matt were the special couple to bring her here for her few short days. They loved her so much. Alicia told me she never left her daugher's side. She was ecstatic that the doctors allowed her to touch her enough to change a diaper, or to lift her while they put a heating pad under the baby. She was grateful for every second she had with her daughter. In her words, "She was just too perfect for earth."

Lillian is down for a nap right now, but I can't help but go in and stare at her every 5 minutes. I know that many people have different beliefs, however, I am overwhelmed with my testimony of eternal families. Alicia will see their beautiful girl in the world to come, and they will be a happy family. As for now, baby Brie is with her Father in Heaven, looking down at her parents.

This really brought tears to my eyes. It really is a blessing that we are sealed together forever and that we can see our loved ones again. My prayers are with her parents. Thanks for this blog ellie

How sad to hear that. The only comfort is knowing she is blessed enough to not go through the hard trials here on earth and her place in the celestial kingdom is secure.
