She’s at peace now

Hannah passed away at 10:10 pm on Sunday night, December 4th, in my arms after a weekend surrounded by all of her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and good friends.

  2. Praying for all of you.

  3. Thinking about you and your family.

    I am so sorry that Hannah passed away. As a mother of two Type 1 children, I have followed your story with all its joys, heartaches, and frustrations. Hannah was beautiful and perfect in every way. May God give you the strength you need to continue on in your life with your family, especially your other children.

  18. Andrea says:

    God has received another sweet angel. You have been great parents to a special little girl; she was lucky to have such a strong support system. I have followed your story for a while and think that you are strong individuals that were sent to take care of a beautiful baby. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  19. gabrielle says:

    Much love to all of your family. Hannah could not have been more blessed to have all of you caring for and loving her. Carrie, you are, and always will be an inspiration as a mother and a fighter.

  20. I so never wanted to see this post but I am glad she is at peace and is in no more pain.

  21. We love you all and will be praying for YOUR peace now that Hannah has found her’s. I am so sorry Carrie. I know every feeling and emotion you are having and I wish I could save you and Bob from all of it. She and Cooper are running free in Heaven now. He’s been waiting for her.

  25. Annemarie DellaGuardia says:

    I am truly so sorry for your loss. I couldn’t imagine what it feels like or what you are going through. Hannah touched the lives of so many people. It’s a sad day. Thank you for sharing her story with me. I have Gaucher’s Type 1, and Hannah has inspired me to do so much more for people with this terrible disease. I am so sorry.

  26. Kelley says:

    Your family is heavy on my heart and in my prayers.

  27. Hilary says:

    Carrie, as a mother, I know that there are no words of comfort that I can offer. To think otherwise would be the height of hubris, which I do not have. I have followed your story from afar for a while, ever since Scott told me. I celebrated each moment of progress, and my heart broke for you with each setback. In the coming minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years, when the pain of having lost your angel may seem to hard to bear, I hope that you will remember your own words, that Hannah is at peace. I marvel the incredibly difficult decision that you made, when you sacrificed your own needs, and you put her needs to be at peace above your own needs to keep her here with you. We can all understand why this was a struggle for you, and for Robert, as well. Also, please remember that you said that Hannah was put on this earth to teach you (and us) something about life. For me, she has taught me to cherish each moment with my own children, and to be grateful for those moments, as life is far too short. For you, the lessons are manifold. Hannah may have came to you (and us) in an imperfect physical form, but her spiritual form was beyond compare. I never met her, but her legacy will be indelible.

  28. I am deeply sad to read about Hannah’s passing. You and your family are in my thoughts. I have been following Hannah’s (and your whole family’s) courageous battle for a long time now, and send you all the love and strength I have in my heart…

  29. Strength, love, and peace to you, Robert, Ethan & Abby. I am so very heartbroken for you.

  30. Carolyn says:

    It is hard to fathom your sadness. I am so sorry for your loss of Hannah and for all the joy she brought to you in her short life on earth. She was a gift to each of you in ways that you know so well, but also in ways you will discover as you continue your journey of life in this world. You are in my prayers, that Hannah’s ultimate peace will continue to bless you with peace and comfort.

    Carrie, Robert, Ethan and Abby,

    Their is a very special place in my heart that belongs to Hannah and only Hannah. My fond memories of playing with her, working with her, cuddling her and loving her reside there. They can’t be replaced by anything else. She will always and forever be the sole occupant of that space. I can’t imagine the emotions that y’all are facing and will face for a long time to come. I feel comforted knowing her body is peacefully resting. I love y’all deeply and will continue to pray. Huuuuuge hugs from Texas.


  45. Susan says:

    My words feel so very inadequate, but please know I am praying for all of you. My only comfort is that Hannah is now at peace, as you said, and was surrounded by love. I hope your memories of her laughter bring your heart some comfort and know there are so many lives Hannah has touched. A lot of good will be done in her name and no one will ever forget your sweet girl. You and your family, Carrie, are truly angels on earth. Sending you much love and prayer – Love Susan (from KIT).

  46. All my love and prayers of comfort and healing for your broken hearts are with you during this horrible time. I hope the happy memories sustain you when you feel you can’t take another moment of pain. The blessing of your time with her will never be forgotten. Hold tight to each other as you navigate these painful waters.

  47. Nancy says:

    I am so sorry. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  48. Carrie, like so many others, I have been reading about Hannah and her journey for some time now, from afar. I don’t know what words I could possibly say that would comfort you at such a time, but I want to let you know just how much your family and Hannah have touched me. My heart is broken for you all. I know there’s a Hannah-shaped hole in your heart that will never be filled, but I hope some how, some way, you can find peace like she has. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
