Carynne and Sydney, the little twin girls I wrote about here, passed away this week. It is so incredibly sad, and I feel truly brokenhearted for their family, especially their parents. Again it seems so cruel, so senseless, and I will never ever understand why something like this happens.
I tried to leave a note for their mom, I feel like I should have some words of comfort to give her, I have received so so many incredible notes and and kind words over the past year and a half.... and I still don't know what to say. I can't think of anything except to say, I finally truly understand what people mean when they say Jack has touched them, or changed them without ever having met him, or us. I thought that I really appreciated everything I have, especially my girls. Carynne and Sydney helped me feel it so much more.... those two beautiful girls reminded me again how precious my own girls are. How truly truly blessed I am. How lucky I am to get to spend my days with them, hug them, love them, teach them, kiss them, laugh and cry with them, learn from them, be a part of their world. I hug them tighter, and love them even more, and when I think of my darling Jack, I also think of the two sweet angels who meant so much to so many people, even though they were all here for such a cruelly short amount of time.
