Saying goodbye to another child.....

Posted by   + Show Post

I live in South Jersey. Woke up this morning to hear we lost another child.

My sister is 28, our brother 27-they've buried more classmates then I care to count.

This girl had problems with drugs/alcohol, got herself into rehab-got clean and was coming back up in life.

I don't know how she died. Just that she had passed. I'm so upset right now because I had to break the news to my siblings.

Jenny's sister just had a baby girl-we've been friends with their family for years and years. Jenny's brother in law and my brother have been close friends as well.


It's just not right that all these kids are dying.

I'm sorry. I understand. I've been to funerals for 2 teenagers in a little over a year, cried with 3 mothers that lost their son's to suicide and one that lost her pregnant daughter that was a week from giving birth because a teenager was texting and driving.  It is so tragic.

omg that's horrible :(

Thank you. I know. I'm not the "typical" praying person but I say a little prayer for my boys everytime I think about the last few years...
