What's in a Name


Seems like everyone's been referring to Charlie as "Daniel" lately.

Do we mind?

Not. One. Bit.

We don't find it appalling.
Or careless.
Or mean.
Or stupid.

We find it...well...
Heartwarming.
Very, very heartwarming.

Hearing his name from others reminds us of the mark he made on this Earth.
On our friends and family.
And we're thankful for it, actually.

We will certainly never forget sweet Daniel.
We hope no one else does either.

Such a sweet post Lisa.

I wouldn't mind either. Sometimes I think people don't bring up the names of lost loved ones for fear it would be too painful. Actually talking about that loved one and the good sweet memories is such a blessing.

He will never be forgotten!

Blessings,
Jennifer

Well, I am one of those but I have my little bosswoman to correct me anytime I mention Daniel. We will never forget Daniel.

I often call Emily "Amanda". I suppose it seems strange to others when I confuss the names, as I only held Amanda twice. But that memory remains in my heart and on my mind forever. I know you understand. Wish others did. I never hear her name, as no one but our immediately held her. I just hope they remember "Amanda was."
God bless,
