Child Loss / Question Of the Week-Getting to Know Them
« on: December 05, 2006, 06:03:54 AM »
Dear Friends,
Once a week, I will post a thought-provoking question(s) related to some aspect of our beloved child’s life/death. This may help several bereaved parents express feelings and emotions that we may not be able to express alone.

REMEMBER: There is no RIGHT or WRONG answers…only what each of us feels during these terrible times in our lives.

Since there are so many new members who have recently joined our Child Loss support group, I thought we could share a little about our son/daughter who we were so blessed to have in our life.
***REMEMBER, Use caution with the amount of information that you give out!

1)   Your son/daughter' s name
2)   His/Her mom and/or dad's name
3)   Month of his/her birth, and age at his/her death
4)   Favorite music, songs, musicians, singers
5)   Hobbies, special interests, talents
6)   Personal quirks, vices, bad habits
7)   Special accomplishments, awards, honors
8)   Foods likes and dislikes
9)   Favorite books, movies, television shows
10)   Anything else significant about your son/daughter     you would like to share.

My answers/comments:
1) Your son/daughter' s name
Danielle Marie
2) His/Her mom and/or dad's name
3) Month of his/her birth, and age at his/her death
January 4, 1995 / Died at the age of 11 years, 1 month and 17 days old
4) Favorite music, songs, musicians, singers
Danielle loved music, Hillary Duff was her favorite, has all her CDs.
She loved all the NOW music CDs
Others: Smash Mouth, Mariah Carey, Lindsey Lohan and Play
5) Hobbies, special interests, talents
WOW, long list:
Loved to play music, Violin (selected to the Silver Star Advanced Orchestra in 4th grade), electric keyboard (she taught herself), and loved to sing and dance with her karaoke machine.
Loves to swim, play softball and basketball, go camping, Danielle was a true “outdoors” girl. As long as there were no BEES…She hated Bees!
Danielle had a unique talent of being able to make another young child feel comfortable in a difficult situation. She would put aside her own fears or concerns to ensure that each child had a good time with her.
Danielle was also a Girl Scout and had gone all the way from a Daisy in kindergarten. She performed many hours of community service and had achieved many of the badges of several the required achievements.
6) Personal quirks, vices, bad habits
Danielle was really too young to pick up too many bad habits. She bit her nails and when she was in second grade, decided to give herself a haircut…TWO DAYS BEFORE SCHOOL PICTURES! Thank God to a very understanding hairdresser…Danielle was presentable.
7) Special accomplishments, awards, honors
Selected to the Silver Star Advanced Orchestra in 4th grade
Several awards form her school, Reading buddy, and camp group leader.
8) Foods likes and dislikes
Danielle was one of the few kids I know that would actually try new foods. She had a very healthy appetite and her (and her brother) were not real fussy eaters and ate pretty much everything.
9) Favorite books, movies, television shows
Books: Lizzie McGuire books, Books about young girls adventures, animals and babies.
Movies: Freaky Friday, The Princess Diaries (one & two), The Parent Trap (remake), Cheaper by the Dozen and The Lizzie McGuire Movie
Television: That’s So Raven, Lizzie McGuire, Sponge Bob, Square Pants, Anything on Disney or Nick.
10) Anything else significant about your son/daughter you would like to share.
Danielle enjoyed spending time with her family. Each holiday was very special when our family would be together and Danielle and her cousins had a good time and were all exhausted at the end of the day. Danielle’s life was full of laughter, love and adventure. She was a very special young lady, loved and cherished by many. Danielle Marie was a fun loving, happy young lady who was talented and succeeded in any task or challenge that she would take on.
God, I love and miss her SO MUCH!!!
