So sad!!!

I am at a total loss for words. I have been absent from blogging for a couple of weeks. Tonight I just decided to pop into the Down Syndrome blogging community and heard the most devastating news. One of my fellow bloggers eight year old daughter Carly passed away. This is such a shock and is quiet devastating. Many,many times I have been comforted and inspired by Carly's mom as she offered me support and advice and shared her life with me. I am truly heartbroken for her family. I have come to learn after the loss of my mom a couple of months ago and now after Carly's death that life is so fragile, so precious and so unpredictable. Please join me in sending prayers and thoughts to their family at this time.

My day is consumed with thoughts of Carly...I cannot get over this. I am continously thinking about what Joany must be going through right now...the thing I am baffled about is Carly was healthy. So many questions going through my head....

I am praying. Carly's loss seems so surreal...it's hard to hear and see that someone you enjoy reading about and look up to be taken away.

I will continue my prayers!

It is a complete shock. We came home Friday from the park and when I looked at my blog roll I lost it. There was post after post already up for Carley. I just sat and sobbed. It's devastating.

I'm still in shock, and going crazy. I want to know what happened to this sweet girl to take her so fast and at home. I know her dad is having a really hard time, as he had to perform CPR on his baby girl. Its just horrible.
