In honor of Danielle HallPosted Thursday, October 21, 2010, at 1:15 PM
I am friends with the families that lost the little baby girl, Danielle Lorraine. The gut wrenching feeling that immediately hits is unexplainable, and immediate. I relate with parents and grand parents that lose the precious perfection that is a baby/child. Years ago, I lost a daughter of my own, and I know that you never really get over a life changing loss such as that. Now as a Grandparent of so many children, I feel it even more. Those of you that know me personally, know that I don't choke up about much, but I lose the ability to speak over little things with the kids. I'm beyond excited the first time they walk, talk, smile, burp..... their first ride on a pony..... the first time they trot or lope...and see their little faces light up at how big they feel. The first time they take a rope into their eensy little hands and throw a loop and catch a dummy head, or a bush...or even trip me, cuz they caught my ankle. I've been roped so many times by ropes handled by those little hands.... and had those same ropes hit me in the head. You just can't get mad, (even though it hurts sometimes) cuz they're sooo darn excited! "I caught you Grandma!" and then the laughter..... that only a kid can do..... or the squeals of delite for other reasons.... maybe I'm gonna rope them back.... and they run fast, but keep looking back.
These are the things that little Danni grew up doing.... and her wonderful little giggle will never be forgotten. Those memories will be so painful, among others. I never want to forget the most painful memories.... because I don't want to weaken the strength of the good memories either. They all go together. I still miss my daughter, and cry for myself. I don't cry for her..... She's an Angel that watches over my family..... And she's in the arms of my Sister who is now also watching over family. She has a large family to watch over her, and hold her forever safe. I just cry for me. I cry now for Danni, from the day that I heard,....during the funeral service, and now as I write this letter.
Please everyone, take a moment and send a Heart Felt Prayer to her loving family. They are tormented.... and they are pulling together for one another. They cry for themselves..... Danielle is watching over them, trying her best to make them feel better. And they will....in time.
I would love and appreciate if any of you could come to this Benefit Roping to help the family thru this time.
For those of you that don't rope, there is still a way to participate by bidding on the Wonderful Auction Items and buying tickets for the raffle.
I hope to see you there, it'll be a great day to Honor the Memory of a beautiful little baby girl. She'd love to see you there!

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
