Nora’s Slideshow

This is the slideshow of Nora’s beautiful two years that was shown at her funeral visitation and at the service.It was incredibly hard to narrow down the thousands and thousands of adorable pictures into a reasonable amount of time. The five songs were carefully chosen for their significance in Nora’s and our lives. It starts out in silence – a reflection of the eager anticipation leading up to her statistic-defying birth. This little miracle made her way into our open arms, leaving an indelible mark on our hearts ~

  1. Oh, Aleisha…thank you for sharing that. I’m in tears here as I type this. I don’t know if you’ll ever fully know how many people your sweet little Nora Rose touched…but there are people around the world mourning her. What a gift she was and is. Thank you, thank you so much for carrying her and sharing her with us all. We will never be the same. What a sweet little love she is!

  2. That was just perfect. Smiling through tears, remembering seeing quite a few of those pictures when they were first posted…And, “Lullaby” always makes me cry–that is what our daughter used as her daughter/dad dance at her wedding.. Thank you for allowing me to be part of dear Nora’s journey here on earth. My prayer for your sweet family is that you will continue to grow in God’s Grace. She will always be with you. ❤

  3. Beautiful. The music you chose was wonderful. Nora was an angel here on earth. I had stillborn twins twenty years ago next month. I always said I was blest because not too many people get to hold an angel. I was blest by holding two. Nora’s life has touched me, and so has your faith in God. There are no words that can take your pain away. Just know that there are many people out there that support you.

  4. Thank you so very much for posting this beautiful tribute to a much beloved baby, Elanora Rose Yusko. My heart remains sad but my spirit leaps with joy to know that is what she is doing right now, leaping for joy with a brand new body, praising Jesus for His great love!!! Praying still for all of you!! Charlene Benton

  5. I appreciate u sharing. I have serious years of sorrow and joy. She was just so loved its amazing. I am hopeful that she will find my Emma (who also passed of T18 in 2010). They can keep each other company until we get there. God bless you all.

  6. thank you for letting me share Nora with you for the past 2 years, it was an incredible journey and I was so sad to hear she passed but we all know she is running around heaven now. My grandson, Isaac, is there too and I hope she meets him, Thank you Yusko familyl

  7. I am just so touched by your family. I wanted to share with you a beautiful Christian artist, Danielle Rose. She has two songs that remind me so much of you all:
    “You Did It to Me”

    Psalm 139 (Wonderfully Made)

    Continued prayers.

  8. My heart is so full of love and appreciation for each of you who have shared in the life of Nora Rose. She is truly alive in each of you as you remember her, and speak of her, and tell her story in the years to come. She has blessed us all in so many ways throughout these past two years. You have been a remarkable source of strength for so many who know and understand your pain of loss at this time. Feel the love that surrounds you now, and let the healing begin. With continuing prayers, Jackie Rogers

  9. I have been a long time reader of your blog, but never commented before. Somehow life just seemed too busy. But, for some reason, I need to learn this lesson over and over…..don’t ever waste an opportunity to let someone know how much they mean to you – even if you’ve never met. Your blog has been an inspiration to me. I loved seeing the updates of Nora and the rest of the family. I was heartbroken when I read about Nora’s passing. You bravely shared your journey, and I’m sure it wasn’t always easy to be so open and honest. My Mom was the most caring (in my opinion) kindergarten teacher God ever made. I imagine that she has a special spot for Nora in here heavenly kindergarten class.
    I hope you always feel a special peace when you think of Nora. You, and your wonderful family, will always be in my thoughts and prayers.

  10. Wow, I had forgotten so much. Looking at the pictures reminded me of how long I have “known” Nora. And how small she was when she was born and how she thrived.

  11. What a WONDERFUL life you gave SWEET Nora & what an AMAZING life God gave to you (even for too short of a time). You are a true picture of walking the walk! Praying for PEACE for you all as you carry on w/o this SWEET ANGEL here on THIS earth!
