The lovely Lili

I am posting this with permission of Lili’s mummy and daddy, hoping to help raise some donations for a very worthwhile cause.

This morning this lovely angel was laid to rest – aged just 23 months. Lili was tragically taken away 2 weeks ago by meningitis. Her heart breaking story can be seen and donations made via the following link LITTLE HAVEN. Please donate if you can – I know from mummy herself that the Little Haven hospice was a great help to the family at this very sad time, and they need all the funding possible.

I have photographed Lili 3 times in the last 23 months, and she was a beautiful, bright little girl, a joy to have around. My thoughts and prayers are with mummy, daddy and twin brother Lukas. I wanted to share with you a beautiful reading which really touched me from this mornings service, by Henry Van Dyke.

We are standing upon the seashore.
A ship at our side spreads her sails to the morning breeze,

And starts for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength.
And we stand and watch her until

At length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where

the sea and sky come to mingle with each other.

Then, someone our my side says;
“There, she is gone!”

“Gone where?”
Gone from our sight. That is all.
She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was

When she left our side and she is just as able to bear her
Load of living freight to her destined port.
Her diminished size is in us, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at our side says,

“Oh, she’s gone!”, there are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shouts of
“Here she comes!” We’ve been waiting”

    I can’t imagine the pain the family is going through, but I’m sure her parents will treasure each and every picture you have taken of their beautiful daughter. My thoughts are with them.
