Re: Dying Girl Leaves Notes Behind for Family

Indeed, that story broke my heart. It's very sad that her parents got a hold of her messages, I'd love to read her book. 135 days to live..that's unimaginable way for her to finish her book, but it has moved me in many ways more than you know, Wolvermouse.

Such a sweet kid. And dead at six years old with brain cancer. Bloody hell.

Such a sweet and thoughtful kid, even at that young age...I can only imagine what she would have contributed to the world had she survived.

Wow...that is something.

I wish the news story had been a bit better (and without those annoying popups)...but nevertheless, it's a sweet story...and such a nice legacy.

Very sad story.

Imagine being a parent of hers a few years from now when you are cleaning the garage and find one of her notes.. i can't imagine the heartbreak they feel everytime they find a note..

Poor people

I didn't know that they were ever able to narrow down someone's life expectancy to a specific number of days.
What a sweet little girl.

Same here. I had this situation in my head long after I first heard the report. Broke my heart too. And, yet so sweet.
