Sophia's birthday and the day of her passing have come and gone once more. On January 22, it was 6 years since she left us to become an angel. Everyday we miss her but we feel her presence in our lives, most especially through our darling Ambrose. My husband and I wrote messages on balloons and released them into the sky. My husband was able to do so over Hogback mountain and watch it slowly drift away at the "100 mile view" spot. I released mine in the backyard and am not sure it went so far, but it felt good to do. I'm sure she got the message.
