My friend Katie is losing her son, on the heels of losing her mother.
He will be gone before Christmas. Before he turns eight in January. They say maybe before this weekend is even over.
He will leave behind his mom and dad and five siblings.
Go, please, do that thing you all do so well. Let's wrap our thoughts and hearts and words around her and her family, because our arms can't quite reach across the distance. I know it isn't enough, not nearly enough, but it is something, something to let her know she is being thought of and lifted up through the darkest and heaviest season of her life. The darkest and heaviest season any of us can imagine.
Go here or here, please.
I don't have any words, Katie, but you all have my heart, especially your sweet Jakiepoo.
