This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

In Loving Memory:
Gage Dole (February 14th 2011)


6 years ago three little kiddos, Gage, Josh and Rebekah started the Ewings Sarcoma battle together. All about the same age, all at the same hospital, all about the same time. Until today, all three had survived.

Off all of them Gage and his family have been through the worst of it. Joshie has a trach and Rebekah is brain damaged but each of their parents still get to hold them tonight. Lauren and Trux don't get to hold their little angel any more.

Other than sharing such a horrible experience together we were not that close to Gage's family but nonetheless this strikes us hard. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Gage's family. Please share yours as well.

The beautiful white rose that has touched so many of us in so many ways is by and used with permission from Australian photographer Lisa Hocking. Please see her blog and thank her for its use.

Thanks for sharing, I am sure this is very hard for all of you, at many different levels. Prayers for all touched by this.

Oh, that a white rose so beautiful makes my heart drop so quickly. I remember Gage. I'm so sorry for this loss.

I'd seen Gage's blog already this morning, but came to yours looking for the white rose -- somehow it is comforting.
