Madeline Spohr

My heart has been heavy lately. I grieve for the Spohr family, who lost their beloved daughter Madeline on April 7th. The below video is their tribute to her. Be sure to turn off my music first (scroll way down to the bottom of the screen to mute my music) so that you can hear the audio.

The Tribute to Our Madeline from Mike and Heather on Vimeo.


  1. Katrina,

    I have watched this video many times on Heather's site and it crushes me everytime (even while I am grinning at the same things you mentioned to her: the look on Maddie's face when she's listening to the cell phone, etc.) You wrote such a nice comment in Heather's blog today, I just had to swing by and see what you were all about. I am also feeling very heavy with grief for them, wishing that we could all (with our collective sorrow) turn back the clock or bring Maddie back. It's just heartbreaking.

  2. I also thought your comment at Heather's site was beautiful. I have not been able to bring myself to leave a comment there, though I visit everyday. I just can't fine the words.

  3. I cry every time I watch this video. Maddies story has changed my life in many ways. I think of three of them often and those thoughts are a constant reminder not to take for granted what I have.

  4. Trina, You have such a way with comforting words - a true gift of a truly wonderful woman.
