  2. Awesome - Thanks for posting the finalized date and time.

  3. Hi..I have been following Bella for a few months and I broke down when I read that she died..I lost my father 2 months ago to cancer..reading your blog over the last few days has helped me with my own grief..I read everyword you typed over and over, about faith and God, what you wrote has changed my life..and I would just like you to know that your precious little girl has touched me and my family all the way here in Nova Scotia, Canada..I am a better person for being allowed a glimpse into her life to..I will be making a donation, its the least I can do for Bella, who gave so much..bless you all..I told my dad to keep an eye out for Heaven's newest littlest member..I'm sure she is melting hearts up there!

  4. Amanda's post made my eyes "water"! What sweet words from a total stranger. Tim you must feel so proud, even during this difficult time. She is so right though. I read your words with such intention. They really make me think about who I am as a person and how I can better myself for my family, my friends, and strangers. Your writing is such a gift! Thank you for continuing to keep up the blog and continuing to share yourself with all of us.
    Can’t wait for you guys to come home!
    Love and prayers always,
    The Vanderbooms

  5. Dear Ringgold Family,
    We will be with you in prayer here in AZ during the memorial Wednesday. Much love to all of you.
    Michael and Robin Setto

  6. Michael, Ryan and I hold you in our hearts.

  7. Tim, could you post your Ronald McDonald House address again (supposing you'll still be there for a week or so)? I cannot seem to find it!

    Hoping to make it to the memorial in person or in spirit.

  8. Such an honor to walk in Bella's name this weekend! Met so many wonderful people who love you, love Bella, love Ang, love Ali, love your whole family, and who love God.

  9. I'm still reading, sorry I haven't commented lately! I wish I could be there for the memorial; if it makes it to the web I will certainly be watching! Either way I will be thinking of you all and of Bella.

  10. Will be there in spirit. "Flowers" were sent to PUCK, in Bella's memory.

  11. I hope you get the most beautiful weather on Wednesday. It'll be dark here but lots and lots of candles. Even if the webcast doesn't work.
    Puck received all I could spare this month, will keep on giving, for all the precious EB-children and their families. No one should never ever have to pay the price you did.

    Praying for you,
    Jennifer, Sweden

  12. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family tomorrow, and always. I will be wearing my silly socks in honor of Bella. ;-)
