Some very good friends of ours went to get their little 20 month old boy from his bed Saturday morning to find that he had passed away in the night. I am so devastated for them and for their children.
We have been friends since before any of us were married and have continued to be friends all of these years. We were pregnant at the same time with my 4th and her 3rd...due within days of each other. We spent that summer throwing up and growing big together. She went on to have another little boy and he is the one who is now an angel. Seeing them go through this is heartbreaking! Yet at the same time, the faith and poise and strength that has always drawn me to them is ever present.
At this time I have 2 requests. Please keep their family in your prayers that they will find the peace and comfort that only the Lord can give. Please take a minute to tell the people you love that you love them...you never know when you won't get another chance.
