    This picture just crushed me tonight. We lost our oldest daughter to meningitis 2 1/2 years ago. Today would have been her 10th birthday. Not posed- in fact my wife had to kick me and point to get me to take the shot.

    EDIT - 10/17/07 - Thank you all and God Bless everyone who left a message or wished us well. I'm sorry but I had to take this down because reading all these messages is making me a mental case. :sad1: I know that was not anyones intent but I am a basket case anyway- and I obsessed on this all day today. I left a link up for the picture in case you want to see it but I'm trying not to look at this thread again. Hope everyone understands- Thanks.

    Thank you for sharing. It is a very touching capture. I know this must be a very difficult day for you all. :hug: I did not know before now that our middle daughter is only four days younger than your oldest. We will keep your family in our thoughts.

    Jeff,

    That photo leaves me speechless. I cannot imagine your emotions right now. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Hang in there. I can't imagine how hard times like this must be on you and your family. You are in my family's thoughts and prayers.

    Andy
