I am so sorry to hear about Petra’s passing; just know that she will be watching over you and the children. Hold on to all the good memories and she will continue to live in your heart forever. You were so supportive of Petra and I’m sure your children will remember all the little things that you did for her. Your daughter’s seventh birthday had to have been very special to Petra; yet, she knew it was time to go on to a better place. Now, she is at peace and there will be no more suffering for her. Stay strong for you and your children and may God bless you each and every day. PeggyPNovember 14, 2011 at 4:04 am #52903tiapattyMember
I am sorry for the loss of your Petra. You posted that when she left hospice for a few days she was worried about losing her bed and the nurses said they would not allow it and that really struck me. They had only known her a short time and could not live without her so I can’t imagine the road ahead for you and your children.
It sounds as though you have a lot of support and people to lean on, ask for help when you need it. I am a librarian and had recommended this book before for those with children:
A Parent’s Guide to Raising Grieving Children

Adam and family: If there is to be a ‘comforting’ thought in Petra’s passing it would have to be that there will be no more suffering for her.
Stay strong for the childrens sake – it is very sad when young children lose one of their parents. Counseling is there for all of the family, if it should be needed.
Come back to thise site, if for no other reason We are your CC family and care about you and your children. Posting Petra’s journey mave just the extra push that someone else may need and asking questions and posting how things affected Petra, can be special for you. This site also gives a person a place to vent, cary, laughter somehow makes evryone feel like family.
My thoughts and prayers are with with you and your family in your time of need.
Go with God,

I am soo sorry for the loss of your beloved Petra. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your children.
Its hard to loose someone you love but when they are so young it is even harder but know that she would want you to go on and keep her memory alive for the kids.
