A SAD DAY . . .

Hello everyone!  

I just wanted to share some sad news our family just received and ask that you say a prayer for my sister Linda and her family. 

Earlier this year I shared with you the visit I made along with my sister, Linda & granddaughter, Morgan to visit my nephew (Linda's son) Danny, who has been in a home since the age of two with severe cerebral palsy.  Early this morning, Danny passed away and is now with our Lord.  We were certainly BLESSED to have him in our lives and we now pray that he will find peace & comfort in heaven!
God be with you Danny!
LOVE YOU!
Aunt Darlene

Oh Dar. Even though I didn't know him I am shedding tears for you and your family. I know all to well what is going on in your hearts and head. But atleast right now he is not suffering anymore. What I do know is that there were two beautiful angels waiting for him and will take good care of him. Many hugs and prayers.

Oh Darlene this is so sad, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your dear family.
I understand what you are going through to some extent as we have a Special Needs daughter who will be 40 this year and the time has come for her to move out and into Community Living....this will feel a bit like a bereavment as we have looked after her for the last 40 years but we know we have to do this now rather than later before something happens to us.
My heart really goes out to you all.
God bless you all.

Love Sheila xx
PS I was visiting Joan's website when I came across your blog...hope you don't mind my adding my condolences.

I know it is with a heavy heart that you let Danny go, but as the song says "If you could only see me now".
