From the story:
“On Saturday, (mom Heather) Spohr and her husband, Mike, sat on their couch far from the computer. The home that would come alive daily with Maddie’s laughter was mostly quiet. Spohr tightly held one of her daughter’s favorite dolls and kept a few of her baby clothes by her side, including a bright yellow dress she wore recently to a birthday party.
“It still smells like her,” Spohr said. “When I feel empty, I like to hold it all in my arms and remember her.”
The girl’s funeral is Tuesday and the family is asking for donations to be made to the March of Dimes, their charity of choice.
