A hard time

Many of our affected families worldwide have to suffer bad at the moment. Many beautiful children had to take their last journey this year. Too many had to leave, and too much suffering to endure the parents in this difficult time. We want to honor the deceased child and again adopt us the way to achieve them.


Farewell Archie!


On Tuesday the 26th March little Archie slept gently and with a smile on his lips in the arms of his loving parents Lauren and Bradley forever. Archie has fought almost four weeks bravely for survival, but his little body was too weak and eventually decided to go. Archie's fight against Tay-Sachs has touched thousands of people for weeks and astonish. He was not in vain the name of "Amazing Archie!"

Archie was a special child, and we will never forget him! Goodbye little angel!


Goodbye Holly!


On 18th March 2013 also little Holly slept in forever in the arms of her loving father and her mother by her side. Her little weak body is now free from the terrible disease Tay-Sachs and she can rest in peace. Your parents miss her terribly and we will never forget. Holly can now play with the other angels and live the life that she lead by this implies denying Disease remained on earth.
Goodbye little angel!


Farewell Leonie!


On Sunday the 17th March, we received a very terrible message. The small Leoni
e from Vienna did in the arms of her loving father Michael on the side of her loving mother Mary her last breath and left this world forever. Leonie died at the age of six years, at the NCL disease. She had a short life, and yet incredibly Leonie has touched many people in such a short time on earth. Leonie has opened the hearts of the people they got to know and learned to love. 
Her parents are proud to be her parents.
The funeral of Leonie was very difficult but we are sure that she is now in a nice place where she can play with all the other angels, laugh, run, and run around. We miss her terribly, and she will certainly never forget. Goodbye little angel!

If you want to light a candle for Leonie can do that here:

The parents are grateful for the sympathy.
