  75. So sorry for your loss. I am friends with Candace and have been praying all along for your family and sweet angel. I just read this before I saw the post and although no words can help the pain may you find some solace in these words:

    Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee who passing through the valley of weeping, make it a well (Psalms 84:5-6).

    Comfort does not come to the light-hearted and merry. We must go down into "depths" if we would experience this most precious of God's gifts--comfort, and thus be prepared to be co-workers together with Him.

    When night--needful night--gathers over the garden of our souls, when the leaves close up, and the flowers no longer hold any sunlight within their folded petals, there shall never be wanting, even in the thickest darkness, drops of heavenly dew--dew which falls only when the sun has gone.

    I have been through the valley of weeping,
    The valley of sorrow and pain;
    But the 'God of all comfort' was with me,
    At hand to uphold and sustain.

    As the earth needs the clouds and sunshine,
    Our souls need both sorrow and joy;
    So He places us oft in the furnace,
    The dross from the gold to destroy.

    When he leads thro' some valley of trouble
    His omnipotent hand we trace;
    For the trials and sorrows He sends us,
    Are part of His lessons in grace.

    Oft we shrink from the purging and pruning,
    Forgetting the Husbandman knows
    That the deeper the cutting and paring,
    The richer the cluster that grows.

    Well He knows that affliction is needed;
    He has a wise purpose in view,
    And in the dark valley He whispers,
    "Hereafter Thou'lt know what I do."

    As we travel thro' life's shadow'd valley,
    Fresh springs of His love ever rise;
    And we learn that our sorrows and losses,
    Are blessings just sent in disguise.

    So we'll follow wherever He leadeth,
    Let the path be dreary or bright;
    For we've proved that our God can give comfort;
    Our God can give songs in the night.

    My condolences-you and your family are in my prayers.

Just my small insight into Quinn's beautiful life, and your journey with her, has changed me in so many ways. Each day is a gift and you truly lived that way each and every day. You are one special family and now Quinn will be watching over you the way you have all watched out for her- with endless love. You are in my constant thoughts. Rest peacefully beautiful Quinn.

    I was asked by my daughter only two nights ago to join her in praying for Quinn. Here is a prayer I tried sending to you the other night.
    I am Peace
    I am Love
    I am Light
    I have a light inside of me that I was given when I was born,
    therefore, there is no reason to fear because I carry that light inside of me wherever I go.

  96. I am so, so very sorry for your loss. Words cannot express how sorry I am. My heart breaks for all of you and I wish none of this was so. Quinn was so beautiful and amazing and even though we never met she inspired me in so many ways. Thank you for sharing her journey and your journey as a family with the rest of the world. You taught me so much in such a short time and I am a better mother thanks to all of you - especially thanks to Quinn. Your amazing daughter taught me to slow down and enjoy the little things in life, to be more patient with my kids, to say I love you more often and to face adversity with a smile (although my smile isn't nearly as adorable as hers). I am so grateful for all these lessons. Quinn was such a special little girl and I will never forget her. I will never forget all of you. Heaven gained an incredible angel tonight. Rest in peace baby girl. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending hugs and lots love from Buffalo, NY.
    Love, The Konieczny Family

  115. I'm writing you from Turkey. Everytime I received a port from you, I was scared to open thinking that somthing bad might be written. But they were great ones with too many great things done for a little angel by her great family...

    My deep sorrow started in August 8th and I was thinking of your family since them. Today I heard the bad news. I'm so sorry for your lost. Quinn was not only the hero of Linzer family, but she (and you her family) touched to many lives in all over the world.

    I'm so sorry. I do not have any word to write my true feelings. My prayers are for her and your family. Brave parents and great brothers... Please do not leave the people who love this family as theirs. Hearing the good news of your two boys would be our relief as well.

    Wish Quinn a peaceful life in angels.

  116. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I read every entry you wrote about Quinn's amazing life and all those she touched yesterday. Through your writing, she lives on in the hearts of us all, and she is such a sweet and beautiful angel. She was so very fortunate to have you all as her guardian angels throughout her life.

    1. Linzers. I am again SO very sorry for all the pain you are going through. I am also sorry for implying that Quinn was in pain (not that you left her in pain, I NEVER meant that!!).

    It just is so unfair and unbelievable. Even though I never got to meet you or Quinn, you both have touched me very much and I want to let you know that your story and Quinn's strenght have made me a better person and a better mother. Quinn has reminded me of how important it is to stay strong and endure whatever comes our way as well as treasure every moment we have. She has changed the lives of many and will continue to do so. She is a light that will shine on.
    We bought a small gift for her a couple of days ago, that we would like to send to you from Germany (where we are from).
    I have been following your blog for quite some time and wanted to write a couple of times, but never knew what to say as nothing really seems to describle the situation and it still doesn't, this is a time that is all about you and your family. Baby Quinn is on my mind and will always be.

  128. My heart breaks for the loss of your beautiful baby girl. I pray that your family can find peace knowing she is in heaven where you will see her again one day. Thank you for sharing your amazing little girl with us. You have no idea what an impact she had on me, and I never even met her in person. Your family is in my prayers.

  130. I am crying with your family today. Nobody should know the pain you're experiencing. I'm so very sorry for your loss. You all are in my prayers.

  131. My heart is breaking today. I still kepting praying daily that she would get better. She certainly defied the odds for a long time. She was a fighter. Now you have your own personal guardian angel and she is in Jesus' arms right now, smiling and healthy. God bless you and your family. God bless you Quinn!

  132. I have spent the entire day thinking of your family and trying to choose the "perfect" words of comfort but I know there are none. Hug each other tighter and know that there must be a special place in heaven for angels like Quinn...she certainly was one on earth.

  133. There are no words... Quinn has touched the lives of so many people- you cannot even imagine how far and wide her love has traveled. I am praying for your family during this devastating time.

  134. I am so sorry that you have become a member of "the club" that no parent should ever have to join.

    Praying for you and your family during this time.

  135. May Quinn rest in peace. May you find the strength, she was given, to carry on. Her life was all about making memories and you will always have them. She was a lucky little girl, and you an even luckier family to have loved her so ...

  136. Today, I hugged my own daughter a little tighter as I wept for Quinn and your family. Thank you for showing me how much I have to be grateful for. I wrote a poem for you, for your family. An angel inspired me, an angel who I have never met, but has touched my heart.

    "Sister Moon"

    Born into this world
    A blessing beyond words
    Yet though the glory of her spirit shined
    Her invisible wings were left unfurled.
    An angel can fly upon the Earth
    As a blessing from God
    But as the sun shines upon her life
    She will follow the setting of the seasons
    And too soon will be gone.

    The Spring, as her life blossoms
    The Summer, a celebration of life
    The Autumn, a consternation
    Until the first snowflakes of Winter do arrive.
    Yet an angel living among us
    Must follow her calling to go
    As God has created her
    As unique, as precious
    As every flake of glistening snow.

    Her wings unfurl
    As God tells her that it is time
    To leave the seasons and the snowflakes
    To experience the Devine.
    She was given as a gift
    And in our eyes taken too soon
    But she was too special for God to wait
    Too special for the seasons
    She will now live on as Sister Moon
    Always shining though every season
    In our hearts and in our lives
    And every time we see that shining moon
    We are reminded that Quinn forever thrives.

  137. I don't have the right words to express my sadness for your loss. However, I do know what a beautiful baby Quinn is and how unbelievably lucky she was to have been born into such grace and love. May her joy live on with you forever. She certainly has touched the world with her gentle spirit.

    Sending lots of love from Denver, Colorado.

  143. I am so sorry for your loss and I wish there was something we could do or say that would take away the ache in your hearts and arms. Your sweet little angel touched the lives of so many in her short little life. I guess it takes some people less time to do their work here on earth than others and you were blessed with one of those extraordinary little lives and I'm thankful you shared her here with us.

  144. I am so deeply sorry. I have been following your blog for awhile now, and for some reason my intuition was to check in on you tonight. There are no words to describe how sorry I am. Quinn was an inspiration & I will never forget this angel, whom Ive never met. God Bless.

    ReplyDelete
  145. So sorry for the loss of sweet Quinn, she was never meant for this world, so sweet and good. She is home now and dancing with all of the other angel children waiting for their families to join them.

    I pray for strength and comfort for your family, especially your little boys who have to deal with the loss of their sweet baby sister.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I am so very sorry. Your little angel was so beautiful and has touched my heart. I have also lost a young child, to cancer, and I fully understand your desire to make her life as full as possible, and to create as many beautiful memories as you could. I think you did a wonderful job in that respect. I wish I could say something to ease your pain, but for now, I can only pray for peace for your family.

May you all find comfort knowing you were the best fit for Quinn and relish in the memories that you did not waste for one second to give so much joy to her life. Our party of seven is praying for your party of five tonight. xoxo

  155. I have been in tears all weekend thinking of your family's pain...it is not fair. Sending so many prayers...nothing anyone can say will take away the pain you are all feeling, but know how many people who didn't even know Quinn loved her and think of her all the time.

  157. Linzer Family,
    Words cannot express how deeply sorry we are for your loss, it feels as if we all lost "our" baby. Quinn with her all-knowing grin and soulful eyes will never be forgotten.
    Thank you for sharing her journey with all of us and for teaching us about NPA. Without Quinn, I never would have known such an illness existed. This journey undoubtably brought light to it and now we can fight to find a cure so no family will lose their angels before their time.
    Ms Quinn's all knowing grin and soulful eyes will forever be imbedded in my heart. Live free of pain now sweet girl and thank you.

  160. I will never forget your smiling face Princess Quinn. Your parents have taught myself and I'm certain a lot of parents how to be an amazing parent without even realizing it. You and your family are in my heart and my prayers for peace.

  163. I never met Quinn, but she has been in my thoughts daily since I heard about your story from Mike and started following your blog. The love and light that shined through her was unbelievable. I often looked at pictures of her and marveled at how one tiny little girl could have such an impact on so many people. But there it was, plain as day in those big, beautiful eyes and toothy grin... that LIGHT that was something beyond this world.

    Quinn and your amazing family inspired me to be a better mother and person this past year and will continue to do so. She will never be forgotten. I am so sorry for your loss.

  166. I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I check into your blog every work day when I log into work. I have your link open up automatically when I start up my computer. I've grown to love your updates and look forward to checking in every morning. I was away all last week and found myself a bit apprehensive driving to work this morning... It wasn't because it's my first day back. I logged in and saw your latest post and Quinn's picture and found myself in tears.

    I'm a mother of 3 wonderful boys. I'm truly blessed. I'm also blessed to have come across your story about your family and the beautiful Quinn. She inspired me to become a better mother and continues to inspire me with her spirit. You are so lucky to have been with her for her entire life. I will continue to pray for your family to get through this with love and laughter and great memories of your time together. Thank you again for sharing your family with the rest of the world. I will continue to check in everyday.

  176. Thinking of you especially today as you do the unthinkable. I wish I could take away even a portion of your family's pain. Quinn was a beautiful soul. And you guys are such an inspiration to so many. She was given to your family for a reason.

  178. This was news that was so hard for us to hear.

    May you always find comfort as you recall all the times the family had together. Quinn certainly was blessed to have all of you for her family. No family could have made her short time here better.

    May you always feel the loving finger of God wipe the tears from your cheeks every time you shed a tear thinking of Quinn Madeleine Linzer.

  179. Let us feel your fluttering in every wind and touch us with rain drops little angel. So we all will know that you are still with us. RIP Quinn..
