I'm not sure if you remember me, but as Dax was fighting for his life, my daughter, Kate was also battling cancer and we would write each other either on Facebook or the Caringbridge website. I am with my family on Christmas Day and we are watching the movie, "The Heart of Christmas" together. Christmas has been very difficult since my angel passed, but I felt like I really needed to watch the movie now.
God works in mysterious ways. In fact right now as I type this note too you, the song, "Reason For the World," is playing on the movie. Joe and Matthew West have become close friends, bringing so much comfort to my family and especially me. You sharing your story, made a huge difference in my life.
Tonight I learned something amazing that I want to share with you. My daughter, Katherine Leigh McCook, went to be with the Lord on October 28, 2010. She was 22 years old. I believe there are no consequences. The Lord is an Amazing God. His grace is enough. To learn tonight that your baby girl, Madeline, was born the same day that my Kate passed peacefully, somehow brings me comfort. So bless you Julie, Austin and Madeline!
Merry Christmas and many Happy New Years ahead.
Love from our family to yours.
