Everyone is invited to help Amber celebrate the accomplishment of graduating from college and to help remember Madison for her 5th (Golden) birthday and the day she went up to Heaven with the angels (May 6th). The celebration will take place on May 15th, 2011 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Stockholm Lutheran Church. The photo I have attached is the formal invitation with all the necessary information along with it. Just click on the picture and the information should be more readable, if not I have it all posted at the bottom of this entry. 

Tomorrow would have been Madisons 5th birthday and I miss her dearly. On Friday at 11:50 pm, I will be lighting a special candle to remember the moment that she took her last breathe 2 years ago. Not a minute goes by that I don't think of my baby girl. I would give anything to have her back and I love her so much.  It does not seem like it has been 2 years, I can't believe that it has been that long. I know that she is up in heaven with so many friends that have passed away since she did. I know she is safe and having a blessed time but that does not change the fact that I want her back.

Madison's headstone is ordered we are just waiting for it to come in and I can't wait till it does. 

Everyone is welcome to an open house in honor of Amber Victoria Kautz's graduation from St. Cloud State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a minor in Child and Family Studies.
