Capture Your Grief, Day 24: Siblings

Day 24. Siblings Obviously not everyone can use siblings as a subject but I felt it was important to include the children who are left here to grieve their brothers and sisters. Capture a sibling, niece or nephew’s grief. Maybe you could share a drawing they have done or even just a photo of them holding something that represents their brother or sister that they are missing. Give them a voice here.

I am glad that my niece Samantha took some pictures during Alanna's funeral visitation from her cellphone. Below are the ONLY pictures I have of Alanna with her brothers and sister. I wish we took more pictures, I guess one of my regret is not having my children come to the hospital to see her. It would be nice for them to hold their baby sister and take pictures. I admit, I am jealous of those family who have pictures of their kids with their baby. If only I knew that this is ok I would have taken tons of pictures!

He was running around, he's so innocent.
I'm glad someone took this picture

And I also want to share my 12-year old niece Samantha who took and saved the pictures above using her cellphone.
