Forever And Ever In Our Hearts, Sweet Shamae

A blog no one ever wants to write...

A tribute to an amazing D-mama, who will be missed tremendously.

She was living the D life about 15 months before we entered it, with the diagnoses of her beautiful little girl Sydney.

We met online, but never in person...something now I wish was not the case.

One chance to hug this amazing woman, one chance to see her smile and hear her laughter would mean the world to me.

She was always there to offer advice.

She was always there to offer her love and understanding.

She was there to cheer me on and fight along side me through the ups and downs with this disease for our sweet girls.

I entered this online blogging community of mothers with children with type 1 diabetes really not understanding what I would get out of it.  

What I got out of it was a family of sisters and Shamae was one of them, 

She was one of us.

It's been said she was one of the original "Dmoms" online.  

She seemed to have a knack for finding us...the newbies.

A bit lost, a bit unsure, but not to worry because she was there.

One by one, as we wrote our first blog posts, entering a world of the unknown,

Shamae would be there, reaching out to us, pulling us in with her love and comforting us under her wing.

She was our Angel.

Offering us same-same and building our new family one post at a time.  

Our family is now broken and missing a huge piece with the news of her loss, our dear sister.

And now the family that Shamae helped build is sending all our love, prayers and thoughts to Shamae's husband and her 3 most beautiful little girls. 

There are no words to express how sorry I am for your loss. You will forever be in my heart, thoughts and prayers and a part of our family because I will never, ever forget your amazing mother...forever and ever!

I found this song on Shamae's blog, and it has not left me.  All night and in my dreams this song played.

Another angel looking from above, you are sooooo missed my sweet friend!!
