Its so amazing how much I can miss someone who I never met.

As soon as I got up this morning I went right to her blog to see how yesterday finished... I was NOT expecting to read that. At first I was covered in a strange peace and calm, knowing she's comfortable and healthy and free of struggle and pain. But, now, I just can't quit crying. I can't stop the sadness for her family's loss and frankly the loss the world has just suffered.

I am grieving with them today. I visit Bella every morning almost first thing, and to see that her earthly fight is over is both a relief and a tremendous travesty. Goodbye, sweet girl.

I know this has to be incredibly hard on you, so I'm keeping your family as well as Bella's in my thoughts and prayers.

Thinking of Bella's family - and yours, too.

I started following Bella's blog (and Daylon and Elle and Tripp's) because of you. Thank you for sharing Jonah's story and for leading me towards theirs. Praying for their family, and all EB families.

I have silently been following Bella, Elle, Jonah and Tripp. Though I am grieving for the loss of Bella I continue to send positive thoughts, encouragement and love for Elle, Jonah and Tripp and families.

Patrice,
I found your blog about a year ago. Ever since, I have been glued to the happenings of your family (and Jonah), and through you - Bella, Daylon, Tripp and now Elle's struggles. It's amazing how simply reading stories on the web, looking at pictures, and praying can have such a profound experience on a person's life. Thank you so much for sharing your story and for helping lead my family (and others) to other families who are struggling with EB. I check these blogs every day - without fail - and I am just heartbroken about Bella. Wishing her family strength - and all others who are mourning her loss...

Through Bella...I have many new "friends".
We go to church with the Ringgolds and my heart is broken. Our CHOC Walk is on Sunday. Team Bella is proud to walk for her.
I am happy that she is finally EB free...and now Jonah, Daylon, Tripp, and Elle have a mighty guardian angel to watch over them.
Hug your baby boy for me....

I have been following Bella's blog for a little while now. Her family is an amazing picture of strength and faith. My heart is breaking for all of them. Am glad that she is no longer hurting, but I cannot imagine the hole that her family has in their hearts.
