R is for Rebecca......

I would like for you to meet Rebecca Faye Pratt.  She would have been my step daughter. However, seizures claimed her life at 4 yrs old.  My husband lives with her memory every day. Family and friends tell me she was a lively child, full of energy and laughter despite the fact she was not an healthy child. I love to hear their stories. It is one of the ways I get to know this child that was so easy to love. I never met Lil' Rebecca yet strangely enough I miss her.  She died a year and a half before I met her dad.  Here are just a few pics of this darling little girl:

Such a sad thing, to lose a child so young. She looks a bonny little lass!

And thanks for stopping by my blog, btw! I'm glad you like 'Frequency' (nosied through your profile!) it's one of my favourite films!

SueH I refuse to go quietly!

What a darling Rebecca looks. How sad. My eldest son had epilepsy when he was younger and used to have some very severe seizures.
How fragile life can be. And how precious she must have been for your partner.

warm wishes

thank you for sharing this information about such a sweet child. I can't help but think the name is familiar and that I may have know her family in the past. I wish you and her dad the best.
