In memory of Jessica Christine Marsh; February 12, 1986 to January 26, 1993. She was almost seven and I miss her today as much as ever.

I should note that I read a lot of posts today on other blogs from people writing about how life is unpleasant and even God cries. But it is life, and there is so much good as well, which can take us home again. May you each find your way in peace and grace.

That is a beautiful picture of your daughter. Thank you for sharing your memories with us and celebrating the time that you had with her.

That summer and fall when I took that picture was one of the happiest times of my life.

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people. Most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey, filled with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas, and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride” Gordon B. Hinckley
