Until We Meet Again….

Our daughter, Kara Anne Lang went to be with God on December 26, 2009. We have no idea why, but we know she went peacefully in her sleep.  Our family misses her desperately, but we are comforted to know that Kara is in heaven having fun (as usual) watching over us. The two and a half years we spent with Kara, as parents, and sister, were the best we could ever imagine.  Although we wanted a lifetime with her, we were truly blessed by every moment we did share with her. Our faith in God, and our loving family and friends have helped tremendously during the past week since Kara became our angel, and that is what will continue to carry us as time moves on.

Yesterday was the memorial service for our Kara. The service was perfect and beautiful, just like she was to us.  We want to thank all of the people that helped so much to make it that way--you all are wonderful, and we appreciate your love and support. Life is fragile, and there are no guarantees when it comes to relationships. Please make every effort to cherish each moment you have with your children, families, and loved ones.  We certainly cherish our wonderful memories of Kara, and they will last forever.

To the Lang family,

I came across your blog tonight, and I believe it was for a reason. Your words about your beautiful girl, Kara, touched my heart. Without a child of my own, I cannot begin to imagine what it must feel like to lose one. I feel blessed just to have a small glimpse into Kara's last days through your blog. Thankyou for sharing your love of her with us.

God bless,
Laura May. xx

I wanted to extend my gratitude again, Tim, Kathy, and Samantha for allowing me to watch this little one grow. You have blessed me in so many ways by doing that. I love each and every one of you, you each have a special place in my heart. You loved, nurtured, treasured, taught, cherished, and protected that lil precious girl to the fullest. She is looking down and smiling and will be with you always.

God Bless you
Micara

You may not remember me, we were at Advanced Expls. together a few years ago. I am so sorry to read of your loss. Your Kara was a truly beautiful child and I'm sure the delight of all your lives. Your faith will give you strength to endure this. You and your family and Kara will be in my thoughts and prayers for a long time to come.

We love Kara SO much and are so blessed to have been a part of her life! She will be so very missed. I see Angel Kara looking down from Heaven with a smile for her wonderful parents and sister. I continue to pray for your strength. I am here for you always.

You've done a beautiful job with the blog. And, I agree that the memorial was perfect in showing Kara's spirit and your immense love for her. She was SUCH a wonderful little girl; we miss her terribly as well, but we're here for you guys. We, too, trust that we will see her again in the next place -- but we know that that is little consolation for the here and now when you desperately wanted more time with her. We're always praying for you... We LOVE You... xxoox Krista, Charlie & Hunter.

Dear Lang Family,
We are in such shock and awe. We have been thinking about you and your loss. The solace in your tragedy is that Kara is an angel watching over us all.

Katherine- I just commented to you on MckMama's blog. I am just weeping over your loss. What a precious, precious little darling Kara is. There is a verse in Proverbs, I'm not sure where- but it says that the Lord is close to the brokenhearted, binding up their wounds. I am praying for you and your family, that the Lord would be near and bind up your wounds. God bless your family, I am just so sorry.
Love

I saw your comment on MckMama's blog tonight. I am going to spend some time in prayer for you tonight. My heart is so burdened for you and your family.

We just lost our son, Noah in July. He was stillborn. I cannot even imagine how difficult losing your child you've known and loved for 2 years must be. I'm so very sorry and I'm so thankful that you have faith and that you know you will see her again some day. I know you are cherishing every moment you had with her and know that this life is just a blink of an eye compared to the eternity you will spend with Kara.

Love & Prayers,

Lisa
