As a young child, Dayna struggled to see the good that could come from such a heartbreaking life event. She believe that if she was given the opportunity to learn how to cope with such an event, she would have been able to deal with such issues in a different way, more prepared and with better understanding. With great loss there is great gain. Dayna only truly learned that after going through such a difficult time. In her own time of grieving she found comfort in teaching herself this very lesson and now she wishes help others find that same strength. hope that this story acts as a reminder to cherish all of those memories and to know that their love will never fade. Love is an incredible thing; protect it, cherish it, and always be grateful for it.
