So sorry to hear about Sienna. She was in my Sunday school class in Calvary Baptist church in Newport. She was a wonderful young lady. My daughter was her friend. I'll be praying for her family.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Sienna once. Hearing about her through her father in December 2016, we decided she was our "Paperbag Princess". What an amazing young woman gone too soon. I am so sorry for your loss.

Sharyl and Brian I want to let you know what a privilege it was to know Sienna. I know you have heavy hearts. I can't imagine . You both are amazing parents to be so strong for her, in her fight. I will never forget her. The picture of her and me with her Polaroid camera is a treasure. She was loved by many and I, for one, will miss her sunshine.

Another Parent Who Is Surviving
May 16, 2018
Dear Newly Bereaved Parent By Angela Miller https://abedformyheart.com/dear-newly-bereaved-parent/ This will likely be the hardest thing you’ll ever do. Survive this. And eventually, maybe even thrive again. At times it will feel virtually impossible. You’ll wonder how a human being can survive such pain. You’ll learn you know how to defy the impossible. You did it from the moment your child’s heart stopped, and yours kept beating. You do it with every breath and step you take. You’re doing it now. And now. And now. Your fingernails will become bloodied from clawing your way from the depths of despair. Your spirit will grow weary from fighting to survive. Your eyes will cry more ...tears than you ever thought possible. Your arms will ache an ache for which there aren’t words. For a lifetime. Your heart will break into a million tiny pieces. You’ll wonder how it will ever mend again. But with every morsel of unspeakable pain, there is love. An abundance of love. A love so strong, so powerful, it will buoy you. You will not drown. Others will say things that are intended to be helpful, but aren’t. Take what is, leave what isn’t. Still, you’ll meet others along the journey who will get it without ever saying a word. Kind souls who will breathe you back to life again. Let them. Years down the road you’ll tire of hearing the same advice and clichés, over and over again. Advice you don’t want or need. Everyone will try to tell you how to best “fix” your broken heart. The trouble is, you don’t need fixing. There is no fix for this. Eventually you’ll learn how to carry the weight of this pain. At times it will crush you. At other times you’ll learn how to shoulder the burden with newfound grit and grace. Either way, you’ll learn how to bend with the weight of it. It will not break you. Not entirely. And even if you don’t believe in hope– not even a little– hope will light the way for you. At times you won’t realize your path is lit. The darkness feels all-consuming when you’re in it. But know the light is there. Surrounding you now. And now. And now. Know you’re being guided, by all of us who have survived this impossible hell. You may not hear us, or see us, but we are with you. Beside you. Hand in hand, heart to heart. Always. Just like your child still is. Above all else, know that no one can save you but yourself. You are the heroine/hero of this sad story. You are the one who gets to decide how, and if, you’ll survive this. You are the one who will figure out a way to survive the sleepless nights, and the endless days. You are the one who will decide if and when you’ll find a purpose again that means something to you. You are the one who will choose how you’ll live with the pain. You are the one who will decide what you’ll to cling to, what will make your life worth living again. You, and only you, get to decide how you’ll survive. No one else can do this for you. People will speak of “closure,” of “moving on,” of “getting over it,” of grief coming to an end. Smile kindly, and know, anyone who says these things hasn’t lived this thing called grief. To lose a child is to lose the very heart and soul of you. It is overwhelmingly disorienting. It takes a long, long time to find yourself again. It takes a long time to grow new life around the chasm of such grave loss. It takes a long time to grow beauty from ashes. There will always be a hole in your heart, the size and shape of your child. Your child is absolutely irreplaceable. Nothing will fill the void your child left. But your heart will grow bigger– beautifully bigger– around the empty space your child left behind. The love and pain you carry for your precious child will be woven into every thread of your being. It will fuel you to do things you never dreamed you could do. Eventually, you’ll figure out how to live for both of you. It will be beautiful, and it will be hard. But, the love you two share will carry you through. You will spread this love everywhere you go. Eventually, you’ll be able to see again. Eventually, you’ll find your way again. Eventually, you’ll realize– you survived.Read more

Sienna was one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. She looked cancer in the face and battled like the true warrior she was. She was a great conversationalist and that was so great to see in a woman of her young age. Her wit, her smile, and her love of music were second to none and will be missed and remembered forever. Rest easy Sienna. This world was a better place because your parents brought you into it. Love and hugs to Brian and Sharyl

Sienna was a joy to behold...conversations were always interesting and a bit more than intriguing. She shared many adventures and travels with us and the scope of her interests was truly astounding. Sharing Bella and Maizywith her on our visits with her left us blessed that we could call her our friend and she brought joy to the dogs with her patting and stories about her special pets. She will be missed but we are confident she is standing on one end of the Rainbow Bridge greeting and smiling and sharing her love!
