"’Time of death’ is all I record the doctor saying. It was sometime in the afternoon, 29 December 1994. I knew it was the right decision but I was still stunned by there words. I had tried to revive her doing CPR, then the ambulance officers took over and finally the nurses at the hospital.
“Nurses and doctors left the room, leaving Ray and me to be alone with Alana. This was our daughter - gone away forever. I was a mum without my baby. Ray was a dad who had lost his daughter. For a moment in time we were lost in our pain. There were no words, we just hugged each other and cried at the enormity of our loss, holding our lifeless daughter. This was the worst moment of our lives.”
Alana’s Brief Season is the compelling story of the death of little six month-old Alana Bremer. This captivating book recounts the faith that brought Liz Bremer through the pain of losing her precious child.
