She was 9 years old and it was 6:50am 8 years ago Christmas day she went peacefully in my arms.

I can talk about it to family and friends but this year, I don't know, it's just hitting me harder. I don't want to put too much on to anyone else close to me so am trying to be strong but Christ, it is not easy. Please can I ask everyone to just think of my beautiful girl on Christmas day and without sadness, send love to her wherever she may be.

Wishing you a peaceful Christmas.

viloot I will also think of her. How heartbreaking for you.
Unmumsnetty hug (hug) to you.

Thank you Whats. I know it's a strange thing to ask of strangers but I have been around here for so long it doesn't feel that way...sometimes. My special girl was amazing. She never complained, she always cuddled. I miss her so very much. It never gets easier, just different.

If you wanted, it would be great to hear about your lovely little girl.

Will certainly think of her and you and send a great deal of love. flowers

I will think of your darling daughter on Christmas Day, and will send loving, healing thoughts to her and you.

flowers There are no words I can say that will ease your pain, but I so wish there were.

She got pneumonia, was poorly for 4 days and then Christmas morning it all became too much for her little body to take.

SingaSong12 Sun 18-Dec-16 22:01:47

Would you be happy to pray for her (and you)? I won't be at all offended if you prefer me not to.

In any case my best wishes and I will think about you both flowers

VilootShesCute Sun 18-Dec-16 22:03:33

Oh thank you all. I feel very lonely in my grief sometimes, like its all so unreal. But my other children mean it's a necessity to not run away or hide in a hole somewhere. Despite wanting to many times.

Rainbowqueeen Sun 18-Dec-16 22:03:35

flowers for you and your gorgeous girl.

I will be thinking of both you and her on Christmas day

I hope that helps you. My very best wishes to you and your family

She will be in my thoughts on Christmas Day. I am sure you will have wonderful memories of your dear daughter and the love lives on. flowers

I'll be thinking of you and your little girl on Xmas day, I'll light a candle for her too if that's ok. smile
I'm very sorry for your loss. But I hope you have a lovely day on Xmas.

I shall be praying for you and thinking of you and your beautiful daughter.

Oh viloot sad my dd was hospitalised with pneumonia when she was four over Christmas four years ago too. She came through but I'll never forget it. I'm so gutted for you.

Nuggy2013 Sun 18-Dec-16 22:05:38

You'll both be in my thoughts flowers

8FencingWire Sun 18-Dec-16 22:05:50

I'll be thinking of you and your little girl on Christmas day, I'll light a candle and send you both our love.
I'm doing this now, but I'll remember you on Christmas day too.

Are you getting any support?

Gobbolinothewitchscat Sun 18-Dec-16 22:05:56

viloot - I'm so sorry. I know that's such a trite thing to say but please know I'll be thinking about you and your lovely girl on Christmas Day flowers

Bestthingever Sun 18-Dec-16 22:06:26

Bless you. It's not a strange thing to ask at all. In fact it's one of the nice things about MN that you can reach out and always find someone there. I know someone who lost their dm and dh on Christmas Day (different years - a horrible coincidence) and I know how they struggle. I will think of you and your lovely little girl. Please accept a virtual hug from me.

Wolfiefan Sun 18-Dec-16 22:06:28

I'm so sorry for your loss. Christmas must be so hard. Trying to make it nice for your other children and missing her all the while. I shall be thinking of you.

My little sister died on Christmas Day 38 years ago. I always buy a single white carnation to remember her by. This year I will think of your little girl too
