Cedie Lynn Mock's Blog

Cedie Lynn was born on 6/16/05 in Memphis, TN. She arrived 6 wks early. Cedie spent the first 11 & 1/2 months in the hospital. Although she endured many surgeries and spent 2/3 of her life in hospitals, she was a very happy, beautiful little girl who was full of love and who was loved by everyone who met her in person and online. She now watches over all of us as our own little angel.

Dia de los Angelitos

In Mexico, November 1 is known as "Dia de los Angelitos" or Day of the Little Angels in honor of children who have died.

I am in my third semester of Spanish and in my class we talk about various Hispanic customs, such as Dia de los Angelitos and the day that follows, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead- celebration of (adult) ancestors).

In the spirit of Dia de los Angelitos, I want to honor my angelito...

Everyone that met Cedie fell in love with her. There was something so special about her. Although it was hard to catch her smiling, her smile could change your whole day. I loved the way she was completely facinated with the men in her life, her daddy, her brother, her G-daddy, and her other two Grandpas. She loved to rub her dad's face and the top of his shaved head. She loved to wrap her tiny fist around her brother's finger and touch his nose. She loved G-daddy's beard. Though she couldn't talk, she showed the women in her life just as much love. She insisted on having her mommy's tshirt every night. She loved playing with my hair and my bracelets. She was the best cuddler and myself, her Nana and her Memaw (and Nurse Kim and Godmother Rachel) could rock her all day. She was a very content little girl and she would entertain herself like no other baby I've ever seen but she also loved to play with her family and her nurses (when she was in the mood). She did have a very big temper but wouldn't you if you were poked and prodded the majority of your life? I loved her tiny feet and georgeous, curly auburn hair. Her nose and her cheecks- who didn't love them! I could go on and on because she was such an amazing little girl. I miss her so much and my life will never be the same without her.

    I never got to met Cedie in person but she touched my heart so much through pictures and videos. She was an angel here on earth. I think about her a lot and when I heard she passed I screamed and cried, my husband thought something happened to Eva when I did that. A friend of mine had called at that moment also and I was crying so hard I could hardly talk. Some people can never understand how you can love someone so much that you never met but when its a child like Cedie how can you not love her.
    Love and god bless,
    Crystal and Eva

    Jennifer,
    My husband and I talked about you and Chris tonight over dinner. You should be so proud of yourselves. We saw the two of you and "Jeff Gordon" at trunk-or-treat at church on Halloween and although you must have been terribly missing your little tinkerbell this Halloween, the two of you celebrated just the same with Dylan. I'm sure that must have been hard and I am amazed each time I see all that you are able to do for Dylan despite the pain you live with having lost Cedie. Dylan is one lucky guy to have such dedicated parents and Cedie, I'm sure, continues to watch down over you as you take such great care of her big brother. You have a great family still. You should be proud.

    Cedie's pictures always reflected the love that she knew was felt toward her. You always had her dressed like a little doll. All family pictures reflected the love that your household has. I pray that time will help ease your pain and that your treasured memories will bring you comfort.

    I had college Spanish but that was 40 years ago so I will continue to text in English. LOL
