Angels

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.

I have been follwing this story and am holding back the tears as I read the letter from Brook to the girls. If you can, good you post a link to the www.petitiontocuresma.com?
It is a petition to help find a cure for this terrible disease. I have now become obsessed with this cause and am blessed to have been given a healthy little girl. Thank you.

I'm thinking of them, and grieving along with them.. I agree with you that there is no understanding of why losses like these happen. It is senseless.

I just don't understand.

Megan, maybe it is simuilar to how I feel, you want to say something but you have no idea WHAT to say. Then you don't say ANYTHING and you feel even worse. From what you told me, hearing or reading Jack's name is uplifting, even though it is painful. I am sure the girls'mother would be overwhelmed to know that so many people read and knew about her girls, and prayed for them. It really is a terrible loss, I cannot imagine.
