Sad News

It has been a very sad week for my family.

My sister's 8 year old grandson passed away.

I hope you will excuse me for not visiting, but my mind has not been on blogging.

I hope to be back next week, we will see.  We all need time to grieve.

We know Thomas is with the Lord , but if you would say a prayer for his family I would appreciate it.

My sister's son was killed when he was 18, and now she must go through this again with her grandson.  She knows the pain her dear daughter will suffer.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

I am opening the link, but I know I won't be able to visit.

  13. Kathleen,
    This is so sad. I am shocked when I heard when someone passed away. Mum passed away last Decemeber and almost every week, I know someone died. Just this moment, my lovely friends, dad passed away too.

    May God keep your sis grandson in HIS arm peacefully. Condolence.

    Hugs from D´Box,

  78. I am so very, very sorry. I can't imagine anything worse than losing a child and your sister has had to face it twice. I agree that knowing what it really feels like will make her know her daughter's pain, but hopefully it will also give her the ability to help her daughter at this time. It is heartbreaking.

  84. I am here visiting from Jane's blog (Blondie's Journal). I am so, so sorry to hear about your sister's grandson. How tragic. I can't imagine the depth of her pain, especially after losing her son, too. I lost my 21-year old son a few years ago, so unfortunately I know the pain of losing a child. And now her grandson too...my heart and prayers go out to her and your entire family.

  89. Dear Kathleen, so very sorry to hear of this heartbreaking loss. Thomas was still just a little fellow at only 8 years old. May God's angels wrap their arms around you and bring you comfort as you gather with family to mourn.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Dear Kathleen, and your sister and niece & family, This is a tragedy that is impossible to understand. I will be praying not only for you family but for Thomas' little friends who will be grieving and not understanding. The best possible thing to hold onto is what you said, Kathleen, "We know he is with the Lord". Praying especially for your niece and T's daddy.
