I'm sorry man im never the right person to say the right thing when someone has a loss but your story was so nice to hear how much you loved and found something you can do that will alway keep her memories with you. Every time I pick up a WCW figure it takes me back remembering watching with my dad who past away around 10 years ago last month.
My deepest condolences. Thank you for sharing your story. This was very hard to read and as a father I wouldn't know how to cope going through a situation like this. Thanks for also sharing her awesome artwork. Very talented indeed.
Just wanted to say thank you for sharing such a beautiful/heartbreaking story it really did make me tear up, Frist off all I send my condolences to you & you’re wife, being only 18 I could never imagine the pain off losing a child is like, but what I will say is again is thank you for sharing this as story’s like this is what makes wrestling so special & the power it has in bringing people closer. ❤️
Im so sorry to hear about this and sending you loads of hugs towards you and your family. No one realises how short life can be and we take it for granted, im glad you found a way to reconnect with her through wrestling. Again sending my condolences and take care

Thank you all for the kind words, we're getting through day by day. My wife also wanted me to thank you all for her, she has been blown away by the comments from all of you. I set down Saturday night with my daughter and opened almost all of the figures, we had a blast. My daughter told me I needed more girl wrestlers so I'll have to pick up some of them over the next couple of weeks. I haven't been able to bring myself to open the Rockers or Demolition yet. I'm partial to them. Anyway, here's our updated collection, with 9 more coming this week. I won auctions for Kane Elite 12, and the Bret Hart RSC Exclusive. I also ordered 7 from RSC that are on their way. Here's what we have so far...

I am not yet a Dad, but if I ever do become one, this is what I look forward to most. Being able to share your love of wrestling and watch them fall in love with it too must be so awesome.
That is the true meaning of why we collect these things. Not because we love "toys" or "dolls" (shudder)... It's the wonderful memories attached to them that come flooding back whenever we see them. And it's beautiful.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I had tears streaming down my face as I read your story. As a father of 4 girls myself, including 2 step-daughters I couldn't imagine what you and your wife must have went through, and still go through every day.
I love your collection, you have some that I would love to have myself.
