Delancey, 5 years old

Name: Delancey, 5 years old
Submitted by: Her Mom
Location: Crozet, VA
What's going on? Her grandmother, with whom she was very close, passed away after a three year battle with cancer this past March.  At the age of 5, Delancey has had a completely age appropriate response to this loss.  One minute she is crying and asking if Grammy wanted to stay here with us and the next she is asking to play Legos.  She missed her grandmother dearly and also knows that she is with God.  However, she doesn't understand why God would take her if she wanted to stay and if we wanted her to stay.  She, of course, does not know the degree to which my mom was sick, so, for her, it seems like Grammy was sick and then...she was gone.
What do you love most about this girl? She is the happiest child that I know.  And, she is everyone's cheerleader.  If you are raking leaves, she will tell you that you are doing a great job!  She is excited for new adventures and always tries to find the best in every situation...something that her Mom could often use a little help with ;)
