Blair Cox & Blake Benner are walking for their baby ~ Baby Benner
"Life in any form is a gift...this walk is not only a truly special way to honour the memory of this precious infant, but also a way to help provide well deserved comfort and dignity for those at the end of this life. What a lovely tribute... "
Love always, Uncle Tom & Auntie Angela
On December 23rd, 2017 we lost our baby when we were 20 weeks pregnant. We may never know why this happened but I have to believe there is a reason behind it. Waves of emotions crashing through our heads have left us questioning a lot of things over the last year. At the same time, as we have begun to look (and feel) more faithfully, I see that this has also taught us many things in the past year - about loss, about life, about love and about togetherness.
This experience has surely changed our perspective on life – that we have come to appreciate the silence in this world that keeps conveying how precious life truly is; that we have a different understanding of the term ‘unconditional love’; that our-little-one will always have a place in this family; and that while pain may diminish over time, its preciousness always remains.
As the parents grieving this heart-wrenching loss – of life and of a dream – we feel nothing but hope when we see the kind of support that we have received in this journey: our friends and family that are a pillar of strength and love for us – their prayers, thoughts and vibes could be felt at each moment and we are indeed blessed to be surrounded by such care and comfort.
As we continue to learn to move forward from here, we are truly thankful for the endless love and blessings received from near and dear ones. They are the assurance that our-little-one has left us with respect, love and dignity; and this precious soul is indeed blessed for a better life.
We love you.
