A Note From Daisy's Parents
On May 7, 2012 our sweet daughter, Daisy Christine Little, was stillborn. Needless to say, our world was shattered. We were only able to hold her for a short time but wanted to find a way in which her memory could live on in the dreams of others. It was just a few days later we decided to form a scholarship in her name so we could witness students learn and grow as dancers who exemplify the core values, character and love of dance on which Relevé Studios was built and founded.
We use to leave our doctor visits laughing and giggling every time we had an ultrasound. (We had one every visit except once, and we're so extremely grateful for those memories!) Our Daisy would not hold still! Every doctor and nurse commented on it. Jodi laid on the table for almost an hour and half during her 2nd trimester screening as they tried to get Daisy to show all her vital organs. We saw pirouettes, somersaults and flips. We just knew we had a growing dancer! Everyone agreed who saw her.
We know we'll dance together with Daisy in Heaven someday, but until that day comes, we can find some kind of peace knowing we are helping students dance here on earth.
Please consider donating to the Little Daisy Fund. Thank you again for your prayers, love and words of comfort. We are so blessed by your friendships.
