Devastating News

I know I have asked for prayers for my daughter's friend Katianna. She was diagnosed with cancer in the Fall....it turned out to be a rare, aggressive, untreatable form of thyroid cancer. Katianna passed away over the weekend! I just have no words..........

Telling my daughter was one of the hardest things I have done as a Mom....we both just held each other and cried. How do you possibly help your child who is 9 understand the death of a friend.

Please pray for her family and hug your kids....you really never know!!!

I am so sorry to hear about your friend's daughter.

Here is something I do with my girls, when they begin to miss their grandmother. We send "heaven" mail. We get a balloon from the dollar store filled with helium, right a note and tie it to the string and then we release. When it disappears, it means grandmom has gotten it.

This even helps me, since it was my mom.

Heartbreaking :-( It's got to be so hard for all her little friends to understand and hard to explain to them. My thoughts are with you all!! I can only imagine what her family is going through.

Hugs!

How very very sad, it never makes sense when a child dies
