ouch

"Emotional" doesn't quite cut it as a descriptor of my
mental
emotional
physical
state.

More like...
Lengthy stretches of numb
punctuated by body-wracking sobs and
silence

as the tears flow

one
by
one
by
one

As I remember
your goofy side
your love of Otter Pops
the way you beamed at your boys with such love

Oh, my dear sweet Katie.
Friends for life is not long enough
when one life gets cut short.

You are missed.
Loved.
Remembered.
And your extended "family" will keep watch over all your boys.
(That's a Promise.)
What a blessing they are, especially little Quinn.

Love you.
(And get a pair of scissors from your grandma for me.)

I'm so so sorry for your loss - and I weep with you. Jesse said it made her feel numb too. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Oh, Katy... * hugs * I'm so, so sorry.

Katy, we are praying for you and your family and your friends. Losing a loved one is always so hard but the loss of such a young person is doubly hard. May God's grace and mercy, love and strength sustain you and your friend's family in the days to come.
