“Welcome / Farewell”


Description from Smoky Rose: One enters this world, and one leaves it.
I learned last evening that my cousin Paul, who I recently became reconnected with - (and am thrilled about that!) - had just become a grandpa, for the 8th time! We welcome precious little Savannah. Within minutes of receiving that news, learned that my dear friend's dad had just lost his battle, after a protracted hospital stay and much suffering. Mr. F. now begins his new life. For a couple minutes, did not know which tears were which...

    Oh, Smoky, it’s so hard to know what to say — I’m so happy for your family with precious little Savannah’s birth and so sorry for the loss of your friend’s father. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Tears are an amazing, complicated thing, aren’t they?

    We had a similar experience last summer when our son-in-law’s sister & her hubby were killed in a small plane crash. Shortly afterwards, Suzanne found out she was pregnant again. They now have another beautiful daughter (much wanted, but not planned quite so soon) who they feel was sent to help them heal during this time of sorrow. A true blessing! :D

    I understand your feelings Mary. My youngest sister was born the day my cousin died. My sincere condolences for the loss of your friend’s father and gladness for the new baby. My prayers are with you.
