MommyBrookie, Mommy, Daddy & Ethan love you and miss you SO MUCH! We are happy that you aren't suffering anymore but since you left...our hearts have been broken and our tears won't stop. There is a huge hole in our hearts from the pieces we sent you off with when you left us. You are a blessing to us. Our little miracle. Even though your time here was short, you have changed us all forever and touched many others in this world. Thank you for allowing us to be blessed with you. We are so proud and honoured to call ourselves your parents and brother. Your smile was so contagious it could light up any room and even melt the heart of strangers. Although your feet were so tiny, they have left huge footprints behind and we just want you to know that. Please visit us often and hold our hands, we hold you forever in our hearts. It hurts so bad without you.
Sabina Brooklyn, thank you for all the "girl time" chats, and smiles. You have the most amazing family! And a wonderful, caring and funny big brother Ethan! Thinking of all of you during this difficult time.

Pooh Bah and GrannygoodwitchTo our sweet Angel Brooklynn. When Pooh Bah and I held you for the first time, your precious smile touched our hearts forever. Your eyes held our gaze and we knew that a special Angel had been sent to us. Holding you in our arms for the first time, your smile and spirit touched us in a way that words can not be found to describe. The love and peace that was our bond shall last forever. Brooklynn you will always have a special place in our hearts and your spirit will be with us always. Hugs and kisses forever sweetie, and until we meet again, our hearts will ache with love for you.

Janet CousineauOh you sweet angel... I never met you but saw your obituary in the paper and had to send love and prayers 🙏 to your family and you. It looks like you we're adorably loved by everyone who's life you touched. Godspeed angel...
Mary and Terry MillerOur thoughts are with you all in the days, weeks and months ahead. Hold each other tight and don't let go. We are always here for you. All our love ....
Lyndon Throughout various posts and pictures I was able to finally see you but never had the opportunity to hold you, meet you or enjoy your little cute smile. You came to this world a few months ago and in such a short time you have touched so many hearts and made such a great impact on others, You are a true angel!! Brooklynn, you have taught me that the amount of time one has in life should not be taken for granted and living every moment as if it were the last is now more than just a catchy saying. Love you forever, Uncle Lyndon
Every grandmaSweet Brooklyn..I'm sending you all the hearts of all the grandmas in the universe. May you journey in joy and splendour. Much love to the family you have left to carry your precious memory. I will think of you every time I get to hold my darling granddaughter Brooklyn. God bless from all the grandmas.❤️
Laurie and Ian MacdonaldWords cannot express how sad we are to hear of the devastating loss of your beautiful little girl. The loss of a child has to be the most heart breaking of all and no words from anyone could possibly cure your pain. You can only take comfort in the knowledge that you and the doctors did everything that could be done and that she is now at peace. Take care Stephanie, Brandon and Ethan
