Default more sad news

I logged in here this morning to post this, but after I saw that Angela lost her brother, I considered NOT posting this. but it's important.

my goddaughter lost her 5-year-old son on wednesday night. He passed away from heart failure in the hospital. he'd been a VERY premature baby, and had survived several surgeries since then. But he just couldn't get past this latest round.

he leaves 4 brothers, his parents, and a huge pile of relatives and friends. if you can spare a prayer for these folks, i'd really appreciate it - and so would they.

Oh Jiffy

I'm so sorry.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
