Ahmie - where sweetness met strength

How do you put an entire life into a few paragraphs?

Ahmie Bin Njie Age - 14 Born - 8-2-2000 Born @ Northwest Hospital in Seattle on a warm summer day Passed 6-14-2015 on a warm spring day Raised in Shoreline, attended Edmonds Lutheran Pre-School, Briarcrest Elementary, CK8 Community School and Freshman at Shorecrest HS. Ahmie was a member of The Vine Christian Ministries and loved to help in the Children's Center Ahmie was a Senior Girl Scout and enjoyed all that goes along with being an active member. She recently earned her Gold Award for her work as an advocate for Childhood Cancer Awareness through her Facebook page, Through Ahmie's Eyes.

Ahmie's hobbies and joys were many: Artist, Poet, Baker, Musician (viola, drums, guitar, and piano). She enjoyed playing online video games, watching tutorials, youtubers and listening to music on her iPad especially 5SOS, watching and reading Anime, favorite subjects Math and Japanese, Ahmie enjoyed school and strove for perfection. Ahmie LOVED shopping, travel which included Disneyland, Disneyworld, Disney Aulani, New York, Colorado, Portland and North Carolina. One of Ahmie's biggest loves were camping and having Spa treatments, TLC, Law and Order and watching Harry Potter with Danny Boy (Daniel).

I remember when Ahmie was in my tummy, I used to worry because she didn't move much. She would lay still in my tummy maybe listening to my heartbeat or sometimes getting the hiccups. Now thinking back and being with Ahmie almost everyday, every hour the past 18 months I know why. Ahmie loved to learn, she loved to figure out things. Her brain was always on, always creating always teaching herself and others. I can only assume she was wondering why, how, what is that beating, is that my mama's heart. Ahmie you are my heart, you are in the hearts of so many. I will never forget how you made me laugh, how you loved me and made me feel special. I know you wanted to be a nurse and take care of little babies. I pray God has taken you so you can take care of all the babies in Heaven who need a loving and devoted caretaker, after all you did learn from the best. You will always be my superstar, my bestest girl, my heart. Your death was both in God's timing and your timing till the very last breath. I love YOU more, to the moon and back. "No more swimming now", says sissy, you can rest.

Mom- Gienna Njie, Dad- Wally Njie, Sister- Aishah Dembele, Brother- Eric Hall, Grandma Annie and Grandma Ya and many more loving family members.

Love Lives On

Those we love remain with us,

for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade;
because one loved is gone.

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory
they live on in our heart.
Think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and she was loved so much.

How does one fly a kite without a string? 

Ahmie was my string. How does ones heart keep beating? Ahmie was my heart. How does ones day keep going? Ahmie filled my days. How does one keep memories alive? Ahmie was my every moment. How does one survive? Ahmie was my life. How does one stay strong, I stay strong because you loved me.

Love, mama
