Very sad news....triggs....

The exciting moments of pregnancy have turned
to sorrow and heartfelt loss with the death of
our baby, Lily Ann Hope Haugen, on July 6, 2008.
Although she wasn't born yet, Lily was a beloved
member of our family and a joy to her parents,
grandparents, uncles and other relatives. We cherish
the few hours we had to hold her and cuddle her after
her birth and could not have loved her more. Now she
is in heaven where she can be held and cuddle and loved
by God, but Lily will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

Lily is survived and cherished by her parents, Lance & Kelly Haugen,
her grandparents, Becky Fahy, Dave Fahy and Curt & LaDon Haugen,
her uncles, Lee Fahy and Curtis (Alyssa) Haugen, her great-grandparents,
Linda Paavola, Margaret Fahy and Paul & Lyla Olson, along with many

additional relatives that love her dearly. She was proceeded in death by her great-grandparents,Edwin Paavola, Vern Fahy and Severt & Doris Haugen.

There will be private funeral services held later in the week.

Oh Kelly, I'm so very sorry. I can't imagine how heartbroken you both must be.

Oh hun, I said something on Webmd but I want to say it here too. My heart just aches that you have to endure this, and the words "I'm sorry", although meaningful, simply do not fully express my condolences. ((hugs)) for you while you heal.

I know the words mean very little, but I'm so sorry. I wish there was something -- anything -- I could say that would make even the smallest dent in your pain.

I am so sorry about your Lily Ann. I lost my son, Caleb, at 21 weeks (born at 23 weeks) last Sept. 1. If you need anything at all, please ask.
You and your family are in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry. There is little I can write that will reduce your pain in anyway or that will fully express just how much I share in your sorrow. Know that we are here, we are listening, and we will remember with you.

Julia said...

I, too, am so very sorry about the loss of your beloved Lily and about the fact that you have to know this pain that so many of us carry every day.
I know there is not anything that can be said that will make it better, but please know that you are not alone, and that unfortunately many of us share this pain and hurt for you.

One practical thing you are likely to have to contend with very soon is stopping or preventing lactation. If you feel that you could use help with this, here is the article we put together that may help: http://www.glowinthewoods.com/how-to-stop-lactation/

I am so very sorry you are here...

My heart breaks for your loss. I am so, so sorry.

Mrs. Spit said...

I'm so sorry that Lily Ann won't be with you in body anymore, however much her spirit will stay.

The loss of a child is the most painful and heartbreaking situation a parent will ever have to face.

I know the pain seems insurmountable and all consuming right now.

There are many of us who have felt this pain, have suffered from this loss. Please reach out to us as you are able and willing. We can't make the pain better, we can't give you back Lily, but we can abide with you.

I'm so sorry.

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I know that there is nothing that I can do or say to make you feel any better, but please know that I am sending big hugs your way.

I lost my twin girls 3 weeks ago at 19 weeks, so I can relate to what you're feeling. This community has been my LIFESAVER.

If there is anything I can do, please let me know.
