This is a very sad day. Violette Noelle, affectionately known as "Sprout", will be laid to rest this morning.
My friend Monty Q has requested that we wear something violet today to honor little Violette. With a heavy heart, I have selected a special violet outfit to wear today in her memory.
I have also taken time to do some thinking, because I do not understand why sad things have to happen.
I think, when the heart hurts, we must fill it with love and kindness. Hug a friend today. Tell someone you love them. Smile at a stranger. Play with your toys. Appreciate the sun and the sky and the green grass. And keep Monty Q's family in your thoughts during this difficult time.
"Perhaps, they are not stars in the sky, but rather
openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know
they are happy."
-- Eskimo legend
May you rest in peace, sweet Violette Noelle, littlest angel.
