A hard month ...

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Tomorrow, Dec 19th, is the 1st anniversary of my bonus boys death.
As the months have gone by, it has seemed impossible that so much time could possibly have gone by, without him.

So we braced for the one year anniversary & our 2nd Christmas without him. The grief is still so sharp and we feel like we are just barely surviving each day.
Then more bad news.
A very dear childhood friend of mine's daughter has been very ill. For about 6 years she's been fighting off an undiagnosed disease. They took her everywhere, to no avail, for a cure or even a diagnosis. They watched her slowly deteriorate. Friday, Dec. 14th, she passed away at home. Today is her 23rd birthday.

We are all heartbroken over the loss of this beautiful, intelligent, kind, sweet girl. She was an honor roll student with such a bright future. Who became so ill, she couldn't even finish high school and never made it to college. College had been her dream. She was an inspiration. She had such faith that she would be cured, that she would get better. She never gave up.

She fought long and hard. At least now, there is no more pain and suffering.
Rest in Peace, beautiful Kate.
