Everyone, Cariana died yesterday April 14 after a valiant battle with leukemia. The leukemic mass in her head came roaring back on Sunday and got worse and worse. The pain was uncontrollable without high high doses of morphine and there was no more chemo or anything left to try. She died peacefully in my arms. I miss her more than words can say. I can't describe how perfect and precious she was. Treasure all your kids tonight and hug them extra for me... Janis
Janis, mom to Placi (7), Liesl (5), and Cariana who truly completed our family, born 8-29-01, went to heaven 4/14/04.
Janis may you and your family find some peace and comfort in knowing that Cariana has touched so many lives and she has contributed SO much in the short time we have been so honored to know her. I am so sorry.
Oh Janis.....words can not express what I want to say. I am so sorry! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your brave little angel with us, and for always keeping us updated about her.....no matter how exhausted and scared you had to be. I will pray for your comfort and peace. Cariana has certainly touched many, many lives!! Hugs to you, your husband, Placido and Liesl. Susan
Hello Janis, I'm fairly new to this board but have been following Cariana's story for a while now. I am so sorry and I pray that you and your family will get through these dark days and nights. I can't imagine your pain but just wanted to tell you I'm so incredibly sad for you.
Janis I'm so sorry. As tears run down my face, thanks for sharing her life with us, giving us a chance to know her, love her and pray for your family.. We will continue to pray for your family as you have become part of ours. Lots of love, Pat, mom to John-John

Oh Janis, there are not enough words to express my sorrow. I have prayed and prayed for Cariana and your family. I will forever keep her picture posted on my wall with the others where I can see it as a memory of a beautiful strong little angel who is sitting up there in a cloud next to our Lord, knowing she is no longer in pain and watching over you and your family. My heart grieves deeply for you Janice. Love, Robin

I am fairly new to this board but went back and read some of your posts. I am so sorry for the loss of Cariana. You went thru so much together and she sounds like she was quite the fighter. I will keep you in my prayers in this time of need. Know that Cariana is no longer in pain. Gob Bless, ~Stacey
Oh I am so sorry. I am too new to posting but have been reading your posts for a long time. Although I dont know you personally, I sit here crying. My family and I will be praying for you and your family. Cariana has touched so many lives and you should be so proud!
I remember when you first started posting....I felt a strong link to Cariana. She shares Courtney's birthday. Cariana is perfect and precious. I am crying along with you! We will keep you and your family in our prayers at this very difficult time. If you need anything, please let me know. Jenn
