    I just wanted to give you an update on this family - I received an update from grampy asking for prayers again and this time it was for DeeDee their second granddaughter who is 4 months old and need heart surgery after having a heart attack - he and Lynda now have 2 granddaughters again and even though they will never take the place of Emma and Sophie, the babies have filled a void.

    DeeDee had the surgery and looks like she is on the way up - Keep prayers open for them ok.

    Thanks and may the day go super good for each of you as you head toward the weekend - we are again having lousy weather - boy since December 28th we have been going through this, but then I know you are having it worse with ice and snow and all the stuff that comes with it.
    Until next time
    Hugsssssssssssss
    Always
    Shirley

    Thank you so much for posting this. I think of them, often, they were going to go on the EB PC in 2995, but they found it just to hard, so many memories that they could not bear to have. When that fire happened, it really touched so many of us here. They deserve a break.

    Sorry your weather is so sucky, here in AZ< we thought winter was over, bt it has come back.

    I cry just thinking about the tragedy. I am so happy to hear that they have been blessed with 2 more Grandchildren. I know nothing can ever take away from their loss but I'm sure the babies have given them joy. I am happy to hear that DeeDee is doing well.

    Thanks for updating us...

    Here is a note I got from Michael and update on Dee Dee

    My dear friend Shirley
    Dee Dee is doing better. Chest tube and pacemaker removed today. She also ate about an ounce of formula.

    Give the disfriends our sincere thanks for their prayers.
    your friend
    Michael

    I always think of them and wonder how life is going for them. I too, cannot think of the tragedy without crying. I cannot even imagine the pain.

    Thoughts and prayers to their family.

    I definitely don't mean or want to be nosy, but I joined this board only last September. Without giving details, what kind of tragedy did this family have to endure? It has made me sad for them to just read this thread......

    Many prayers heading to the family. I thought of them when my first grandchild arrived last summer and we talked about how soon we could take him on his first cruise, and think of them often.
    Thank you so much for the updates.

    Emmagrammy was very active on this board and offered so much information - she and her hubby had 3 daughters and only 2 granddaughters who were adored. Emma was 4 and Sophie was 4 month olds when their home was caught on fire by a computer too close to drapes - Amanda (Mom) and the 2 girls were all upstairs asleep and they didn't make it down the stairs - Sophie was taken to the hospital and manage to live 2 weeks when she passed. This whole entire board did everything possible to support and pray for this family.
    Emmasgrammy did not believe that they would ever have grandkids again and were blessed with 2 more girls - the baby Dee Dee suffered a heart attach at the age of 4 months and the entire family were made to relive what happened 5 years ago - every so often I will do an update since so many beautiful and wonderful people from here offered so much and we all loved the family very much - we are hoping someday, they will be back here with new memories to build with these grandbabies.

    Thanks, Shirley, for explaining what happened. I could tell it must have been something that was terribly tragic, and indeed it was. Wow - I can't even imagine.

    This board is an awesome group of folks.

    What a sad situation. I too have lost family in a fire and no matter how you lose those you love, it hurts. My heart goes out to Emmasgrammy and my prayers for Dee Dee's full recovery.

    Gosh, how much can one family be expected to endure.
    My prayers and best wishes are with them.
    MY DD had to have heart surgery at 2 months and onlt weighed 2 pounds. They can truly do miracles.
