Sweet Hannah

Sweet Hannah

Hannah and Nathan at a year old.

My dear friend and best friend from college ,Krissy ,lost her little 4yr.old girl, Hannah Wilkins, a few days ago. I cannot fathom the pain and heartache they must be experiencing and how bad they must miss her. Please join me in praying for their family.

Her Obituary is below:

Hannah Leigh Wilkins was born on January 30th, 2006. Hannah is a Hebrew name that means grace or gift from God and throughout the brief four years God gave us with her she was a constant reminder of the sweet mercy of Christ. God made her without a right ventricle and with a coronary condition that caused her to need a transplant when she was only 4 months old. Overcoming obstacles only God could enable, she received a new heart on Glenn’s birthday after a 37 day wait…truly not a coincidence. For three years Hannah lived an extremely full life and outside of regular checkups, lab work, and biopsies, a very normal life as well. In December of 2009 Hannah became very sick and was diagnosed with a type of lymphoma called Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disease (PTLD). After being in and out of the hospital for next five months, on Friday, April 16th God mercifully took her home to be with Him. Hannah is survived by her parents Glenn and Krissy Wilkins, brother Manny, sister Abby; Grandparents Don and Pam Wilkins and Joel and Sandi Thomas, Uncles and Aunts Chris and Rebecca Wilkins, Sean and Joey Meyer, Michael and Sarah Torrance; and a host of friends who have loved her in ways words cannot express.

The Family requests dear friends and family who want to help to NOT send flowers, but rather a memorial to the Hannah Wilkins Transplant Fund to 808 Eisenhower Dr. Augusta, GA 30904.

Visitation will be held at Platt’s Funeral Home on Crawford Avenue from
6-8 p.m. on Tuesday April 20th.

The Funeral will be held on Wednesday April 21st at First Presbyterian Church at 11 am at 642 Telfair Street Augusta, GA 30901.

Hey Annette,
thank you for posting the sweet pictures. I don't have any of Hannah - only some of us at our "get together" back in 08. I cannot get Krissy out of my mind and pray for her constantly. I already told her I couldn't be at the funeral but will probably see her soon in Augusta. She said Wednesday would be a great celebration!!
