Hugs to you. I have not been blessed with kids, but I can empathize the pain through what we have had to do with animals "not meant long" for this world.

Know when this special event occurs, realize you gave your daughter a tremendous gift. You taught her how to be a strong and independent woman.

You are an asset to this world, never forget it. Take your time of course to process your pain, and as a person learning to do this without booze and other distractions, I now appreciate how hard it is.

So fist bump to you, and all I can say is I believe in you and "you got this Vanessa" ...
