But then she also told us that "it's okay, she'll still be with us after she dies. Just like the angels. We can't see them, but they're with us." She also said that "I'll miss Mena because she gives us all her cuddles." What a sweet little girl Ellie is...pretty smart for an almost-4-year-old. I hope I'm as strong as that when Mena's time comes. But I doubt it.
Tonight we all hugged Mena, told her we loved her, thanked her for all the cuddles and for being such a good friend. I hate being a grown-up.
