  Prayers and Notes For Leiloni 

 
 
 

Hello - Frankie my 20 year old daughter Leiloni has been in ICU for almost 3
weeks now with cryptococcal meningitis- She has lost all vision in both of
her eyes. Please say a prayer for my sweet angel - We will be praying for
all of you, Christi

    

Hi Punkin!!!!! You have survived this deadly disease  and you are going strong - you never regained  your sight but you have never lost your "VISION"

I Love you!

For Leiloni, May 2004

In darkness I dwell. Pain and confusion my only company.
No familiar voices, no faces could I see, why was this happening to me?
Days have gone by and my mine is full of wonder and fear,
Alone and abandoned how could this be.

It is your voice, your words, Lord, I long to hear and see.
Please God let mother find me.

A new day dawned, the door was opened,  my eyes still in darkness, though I could feel your light surround me.

Mother, now here, joined by angels you have sent for me, with faces I have not seen and voices I have not heard. Angels to love and pray for me.

This is a journey I did not seek, but you Lord have sent Angels to guide my feet.

My eyes remain in darkness but my heart is calm. 

For your angels have heard my plight.

Bringing with them word of your unfailing love with the morning light.
Dearest Father, please give sweet Leiloni light for the journey, strength for healing and love for life.
We praise you Lord for the miracles coming and we thank you Lord for binding us together in our angel family.
Leiloni, hold on tight,  Frankie, Mother of Heaven Bound Angel, Ryan

Good Morning my Sweet angel girl!
Well we made it through the weekend and your surgery! I know that you are
terribly confused and that you do not understand what has happened to you -
Even yesterday you were having a hard time recognizing anyone's voice.  But I
also know what a fighter you are and that you are going to pull through all
of this.  Remember that you are never ever alone - Your heavenly Father is
right there with you even when I cannot be.  Leiloni, I know how strong your
faith is please hold on to that!  You know that I feel you have been with me
all of my life - We have helped one another through many things.  We will
conquer this also - We have so many wonderful things still to do - Pull from
your toes  baby girl we need you!
All of my Love,
Mamma

Christi,

We talk often but know I am praying for your daughter. I was exactly like her three years ago only mute instead of blind. God works miracles we see that as we read some stories on this site. Keep your head high be strong. We will keep you in our prayers. I'm here anytime you need me. EBA, Sherry

us all, you have overcome so much in your short little life, and through it

for now he carries you. I love you and send you hugs and kisses.

Love,
Your New Aunt Donna

Loni, Hey baby girl, guess your not a baby anymore but you will always be my baby girl. I watched you grow up, we spent some great times together. Remember baseball, I always will, still got the team picture. I Remember coming to your school to watch some program, 6th grade I think, I was so proud of you. I know you have had some tuff times and this latest challenge is a real tough one. I also know what a strong person you are, what a very special young woman you are. Stay strong baby, I know you can do it. I am here for you, I always will be. I think about you every day and wish I could take some of your pain for you. Keep fighting this we still have allot of good time to spend. I will be down to see you as soon as I can. Everyone here, Linda, Michael, Mandi, Matt, Mikey, Danielle and Chris are thinking about you and send there love. I am not one much for praying but I will say one tonight for you. No matter how this comes out know that you have family at your side that loves you.

You have always been very special to me even when we have butted heads that never changed, I love you. I will always be here for you. Stay strong girl, I will see you soon.

 

Love you, Uncle Michael

LHi Leiloni,

 We have never met but I have heard so many good things about you, that I feel like I know you. I met your mother last summer through my sister, your new Aunt Donna.  Your mother seems like a pretty remarkable lady and with everything you are going through I sense that you too are just as remarkable.  When you are feeling better I hope that we will have the chance to meet.   You have the love and support of so many people, including myself, that I know you will be okay.  Be strong and when you are well our paths will cross.  I look forward to meeting the girl that shares my name and birth date.  My prayers are with you, Heavenly flower.  Your friend,  LeiLani

Hey Loni, you know that I coach a baseball team that Matt and Mikey both play on. We have a tournament to play tomorrow, three games in a row because of the rain. I'm going to tell all of my boys about you and what you are going through. We will dedicate this tournament to you, in fact we will dedicate the whole season to you, we did not lose one game last year and we will do it  again this year in your name. We are strong, we are tuff, we will not lose. We send our strength to you.

Remember three strikes you are not out, there is always one more thing you can do. stay strong.

we love you, independence Cobras.

 

PS. I expect you to be at our year end party to help me give out awards.

I'm with you, Uncle Michael

TO SWEET ANGEL LEILONI,

God bless you honey.  Always remember our Heavenly Father is with you and he will NEVER leave you side as long as you keep Him in your heart.  You are one of His treasures.  He is only testing your faith in Him...and faith is the key to Heaven.
Faithful Daughter Lana, daughter to  HBA MOM

Dear Leiloni,

We haven't met, but as a member of the Twin Rivers Congregation, I feel like I already know you.

You are in my thoughts and prayers daily.  I was thinking this weekend, that at a time like this, everything must seem so horrible, and yet we, as humans can't possibly know the whole picture.  Our Heavenly Father on the other hand, does know the entire picture. While your time now may seem desperate, please keep holding on because God isn't finished with you.  He still has work for you to do.  Trust in him.  One of my favorite scriptures reads, Lean not on your own understandings... rather trust in God...Proverbs 3:5-6.  Rest and recuperate knowing just how many people are praying for you.

May you rest in Christ's loving embrace.
Love, Julie Mahoney

Leiloni my sweet girl, even though you cannot read this- It helps to be able
to put my thoughts and feelings down.  You are such an inspiration to
me-your strength and faith exceed any I have ever known.  How very proud I
am to call you my daughter what a blessing it is and always has been to be a
part of your life! These trials that we are going through seem so tough and
relentless right now-but there must be a reason-I know that all of this is
going to end and the outcome will be beautiful if we just have faith and
believe. I know that you are being held in the very most capable hands I
must believe that pull strength from his love and from me.

I love you
Always and forever
Mamma

Good Morning sweet girl! I miss you so much! I just wanted to tell you how
proud and inspired I am by you! If you can face this darkness and actually
see tremendous light -I certainly can! This experience has been so humbling
for me. I want you to know how many people that are praying for us-People we
have never met-people from all over the country!!!!! Relax in the knowledge
that you are being uplifted! Try to rest and keep your faith strong-There is
going to be a beautiful ending to this story!
Forever grateful for your life
Mom

Good Morning Frankie- Leiloni wanted to send a message to everyone.  First
she wants to say thank you for all of the letters, thoughts and prayers.
She also wants to let everyone know that she prays for all of you constantly
( and she says she has plenty of time on her hands these days!) What she is
trying to say to everyone is that she knows that the prayers are working-she
says she can feel god holding her hand and the angels on her shoulders. She
said please know that she is comforted and not afraid. She said tell them
the prayers are working.

My thanks and gratitude to everyone also
Christi mother to EBA-Leiloni

Dear Leiloni

Today is your 21st birthday. I am sending you my love,  prayers,  a piece of my heart and Ryan's favorite scripture.

But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.  Isaiah 40:31

You will mount up on wings like Eagles, have faith little one., God Loves You

The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or touched - They must be felt with the heart ~ Helen Keller
Leloini  I know your heart is beautiful and feels thinks that only some of us could dare to dream.
