Forever My Tilly Billy

by Hayley
(Ireland)

My beautiful, gentle, loving baby girl, I miss you with all my heart, as do daddy and the boys.

Saturday will be your 10th birthday, my big girl! I remember the evening you were born, along with your siblings, such perfect little beings, how lucky was I to have you from the very first day. I think maybe that’s why it still hurts so much to not have you here. I’m crushed without you Tilly.


You will have been away from us for a whole year on 28th March, and I'm dreading that day. A whole year without my best friend, my confidante, my snuggle bum.

I haven't been able to go back to our beach since you left. It's not fair on the boys, I know, but it could never be the same without you there.

I love you, Tilly. There will never be a day that I don't think about you. Your little jumper is still under my pillow.

Sleep well, my gorgeous girl. Mummy will be with you soon. xxxxxxxxxx
