Sad Day

My sister called earlier today and asked me if I had talked to our mom. I said "no, why" then she asked if I was sitting down and told me that an old friend's 3 year old daughter died on Thursday. Niki and I were really good friends in High School but I was a year older than her and we lost touch after I graduated. The last time I saw her was at Porter and Henry's 1st birthday party. Her daughter Kendall was so cute and looked just like her dad, a friend of ours from youth group. My mom ran into an acquaintance at the store who told her about it so the story I have is that Niki put Kendall in her crib for a nap and a shelf fell on her neck. When Niki went in to get her she was blue so they think she died instantly. I can't even begin to understand the kind of pain they are going through right now. Shauna is going to come down and we are going to try and go to the funeral this week. I have to figure out what to do with the kids because I would not feel right bringing them with me. All day I have been hugging the kids a little more and just hoping that noting ever happens to them.
We have done a lot this week but I just don't feel like writing about it right now.

  1. How awful, I can't even imagine. If we can get home this evening (cross your fingers), I can come over and watch the kids while you go to the funeral.
