wednesday afternoon, my friends karen and greg lost their son from complications from cerebral palsy. christopher was 29 years old. karen is one of my very dear friends and her husband (who also happens to be my train conductor) is one of my favorite people. their oldest daughter, who is my age, is due to have her baby next week, and is unable to come home for a funeral or any kind of services...even to say goodbye to her brother. my heart just aches for their family.
please keep them in your thoughts and prayers this week.
