                          Chosen One
             God needed an angel in Heaven
               To stand at the Savior's feet;
                His choice must be the rarest
                     A lily pure and sweet.
            He gazed upon the mighty throng
            Then stopped and picked the best,
               Our child was His chosen one,
              With Jesus, Lillian is now at rest.

This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Lillian Hope Topping who was born on February 19, 2012 and passed away on February 23, 2012. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.

Lorri Topping Christmas 2012: Our first Christmas without you January 30, 2013
It hurt more than we expected. Of course we had Isaac to make us laugh and give purpose to the season, but there was a gaping hole where you should have been. God is gracious and came to fill the empty spaces, but the tears still fell like rain and anxiety ran high.

There were babies everywhere! It is still so hard to see them because you can't help but constantly compare.Would she have looked like that? How big would she be now? They look so happy and in love...I wanted that...

We decorated a little live tree at the cemetery complete with lights and a star. On Christmas Eve they line the entire place with candle lights. It was beautiful. After church we opened a present for Lilly by her tree. It was a picture frame engraved with her name and dates. We also bought her a beautiful angel with a globe that we will set out every year at Christmas.

At home we lit a candle above her stocking and let it burn from the night of Christmas Eve to Christmas night.


After the first good snow we built a little snowgirl for Lilly. The hat was a shower gift meant for her. We miss you Lillybug!

Lorri Topping Missing you at Christmas! December 28, 2012
Merry Christmas Sweetheart!! We Love you!!
Mommy The Hope of Heaven May 25, 2012
I remember the first time I really saw you. My breath caught in a gasp as I thought you were the most beautiful, perfect newborn baby I had ever seen. I know all mommies say that but truly you were...are the most beautiful and precious baby girl I (and a few others) have ever seen. Healthy and pink. 7 lbs 14 oz. I told your daddy I thought you would weigh 8 lbs. when you were born. I always thought I would have gotten to hold you and see your beautiful eyes like I did with your Bubby. One of the many things I wish I could change is never getting to see you look at me, never hearing your cry or feel you wiggle in my arms.

Oh how mommy misses you sweetie!! I cherish the moments we had together and I regret every single second we spent apart!!!! Now I cling to your pictures and kiss them every day and night. I have every one memorized, burned deep into my memory so that I have just to close my eyes and you are there. Not a day has gone by that I haven't nearly cried myself to sleep, desperately wanting you there with me.

I see you everywhere. In the arms of new mommies and daddies. In Isaac's baby pictures. A ghost in your bassinet and in your daddy's arms and on my chest.

Even now I cannot think of you without a storm of tears and despair. I love you SO much baby! You are mommy's precious little girl and nothing, not even death can take you from me!! I promise I WILL see you again hunny. My Lilly Bug. I will miss you every second, every minute, every hour of EVERY day and pray the Lord come heal this broken world and take us home!

Dawn Casebolt (Lorri's Sister) Unity in Love March 30, 2012
Tho it was brief I will never forget the 4 precious days we got to spend with Lillian Hope. The one thing that sticks out the most to me is the Love & Unity felt between family members & friends, all differences were set aside & hearts came together for one reason to Hope & believe. And even tho we feel the pain of seperation from our precious Lillian it is only temporay we will have all eternity to spend with her, what a day that will be!!!
