WHEN IT RAINS..IT POURS

A heartful thank you for all the support, PM's, and prayers sent to us when my mother fell and died...

As many of you know my 17 year old took it quite hard...

and last night a friend of his was murdered in our little town...a great kid..quiet, good grades, friend to all, but made a few bad choices that teenagers do but should never have cost his young life...

not exactly sure why I am writing this except maybe to remind your children just how precious and fragile life can be as they feel they are invinsible!

When Children Grieve

I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. It must be a very tough time for you. I can hear how much your heart is aching.

I attended a place called the Grief Recovery Institute, which helped me tremendously after the loss of my father and then my sister. There is a wonderful book they have written called When Children Grieve, by James and Freidman. I hope they can bring some comfort to you through this difficult time.

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Catherine, so sorry to hear this sad news. My son suffered greatly when his best friend died in a car accident so I know how your heart breaks for your son. God be with you, your son, and his friends family.
