On November 29, 2006 my daughter, Stephanie, was struck by a car and was called to Heaven by God. Stephanie was very bright, a model and an actress.
My relationship with my beautiful middle child was intense. Stephanie needed lots of support. She had suffered from bipolar disorder, but she wouldn't take medication. Her life was made more difficult, but I had to respect her because she lived life her way. When she died at 31, I was devastated.
My other two children and their spouses decided to give me a gift...a beautiful Golden Doodle puppy who is beautiful, sweet, smart, and loving. Rose is an incredible source of comfort to me every day. As I go through the grieving process, which is incredibly painful, Rose is by my side every step of the way. I truly think Rose is inspired by the angels and by Stephanie to be a source of comfort and joy.
I feel blessed to be given such a wonderful gift from my children.
