Thank you Molly! That isn't even the beginning. Prior to that my niece died, Mother passed, my nephew passed 2 weeks later, then my Grandmother...then my Dad 2 weeks later, then my other Grandmother and niece. My family has experienced so much loss it's unthinkable. I think the worst was on that day, my beautiful niece Haley and my Grandmother on Christmas Eve...that was the most unthinkable thing to go thru. I try to focus on how much they touched my life.....but my main focus is always my niece..she was only 6 when she died...she was really sickc with a high fever....a virus going around. She had wet herself a few times and my sis-in-law (ex now) put her in the tub to wash off each time. They finally fell asleep and I guess she woke up and realized she wet herself again, so she got in the tub herself...everyone was asleep...and she had a grand mal febral siezure and drowned. It's something you don't think of..you think a 6yr old will be fine in the bath alone...but in this one instance...it took her life. My nephew woke up that morning and found her. My brother has lost 3 kids....I cannot imagine it, even being their Aunt, it still doesn't seem real...but it is, they aren't here. I miss them dearly. Brittney died of SIDS at 6 weeks, Hunter had just learned to crawl and was asleep on my bed (they put him there for a short time while they got stuff ready to go to the park) and he woke up and crawled.....fell between the bed and wall and suffocated. He died before anyone saw him...he was 6 months. Then Hailey at 6 yrs. I often go over it in my head...it is 666, 6 weeks, 6 months and 6 yrs...which I belive is the work of the devil. I don't understand it...all I can do is remember thier sweet faces and how much we loved them. Their love gets me thru it....somehow. I wonder what they would be like..look like today? I don't talk about it much, but it is good to talk about it sometimes....and hopefully it reaches someone that needs encouragement to love their family and not take for granted every day they have with them. You never know....life isn't in our hands.

I found this picture today in my office. It is a reminder of 2 loved ones I lost. One, my Grandmother, who lived a full life...the other my sweet niece, who's life had just begun. They died on the same day, which happened to be Christmas Eve 2002, in 2 different states, within the same hour. To this day I still don't understand why....but we cannot ask why. They were preceeded in death by my parents and another niece and nephew, and many others that passed away. We get caught up in our daily lives and tend to forget from time to time who we've loved and lost. Today it took a picture to bring back all the memories of the good times and the unconditional love they gave me. Having lost so many family members, I try not to take life for granted and enjoy the family that I do have present in my life. I love them all dearly and can't say it enough. That is one thing I have taught my daughter, is to always say I Love You at the end of any conversation, when you leave the house, after a phone call.....because you never know when it will be the last and you want to make sure those special people in your life know...that you LOVE them! I challenge everyone to tell all those you love every chance you get....you won't be sorry! Mom, Dad, Nana & George, Gan Gan, Brittney, Hunter and Hailey, I still love you and miss you dearly...you will always be in my heart. Love You!
