sad news

At about 12:35 this morning, our little friend Hannah passed away. We knew it was coming soon but I wasn't really prepared for the news, I guess. It was hard to tell our boys about it. It's hard to watch my friend go through this. Our hearts ache for the loss, the empty space at the table, but at the same time I feel some peace and gratitude that Hannah's struggle is over. She is free from the body that limited her so severely for the last few weeks. We know we will see her again.

I don't even know Hannah or her family, but I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. I can't even imagine watching one of my children struggle with an illness like that and losing them while they are so young. My heart breaks just thinking about her loved ones at this time.

Bil and I have been checking the Hannah website periodically trying to keep track of what is going on. I have been so touched by her and her family and what they are going through. I cannot fathom the pain they are in--it is truly my very worst fear, to lose a child.

I am sorry for you guys, too. It has to be so difficult for you to watch a friend go through this, not to mention to help your own children understand it. But, I have to say that Brita is so lucky to have you in her corner. We will definitely be praying for all of you!
