Following cancer kids on CaringBridge for the last 2-1/2 years, just the ones that I follow who are out of remission or sprouting angel wings are averaging per month. They all have faces, birthdays and family. The angels had hope and dreams cut short.
St. Jude sent me a picture of Emma when she was the child of the month. The picture still hangs on the mirror and I see it every day. It now has a shrine of angels surrounding it.
Today I went back to the St. Jude video:
It may be the weather, exhaustion; I'll call it allergies. The eyes sure did well up during that video. I probably have to check out the furnace filter or see if the wife is chopping onions.
Emma, I've never met you but sure do love you!
