A Bad, Bad Day. . . .

I have never written on this board but feel the need to do so today. My neighbors daughter passed away today.

Brianna was 2 years, 4 mos., and 22 days young. She was born with Trisomy 18 and was not expected to live 1 year. My wife offered her assistance in any way possible when she was born and my wife had the joy of caring for her and babysitting her many, many times over her short but love filled life.

My wife is Momma Kathy in the blog.

I feel so sad for Jerry as this was his only child.

Her Story . . . . . http://briannagiveshope.blogspot.com/

That was heartbreaking...I am sorry for this baby and her family

I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers, as well as your own family.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

I sorry I could not read the blog, but I wanted to express my sorrow you you and her parents. It's never a good thing to lose a child, even one you know will pass away. hugs to you all at this sad, sad time.
Never underestimate the determination of the mother with a handicapped child
