"Fun" Photo Friday - Late Again

The reason I put fun in quotations is because this posting of pictures, while fun when they happened, now bring memories of a loved one lost.

Our prayers for Sarah may have been heard, but it was too late. She was already gone and it was just a matter of time before she made her way up the stairway to Heaven. Thursday night, just 2 hours after seeing her, her heart stopped beating. She is no longer in any pain.

I told my kids yesterday that their beloved Miss Sarah was no longer with us. I explained the situation to my older two and Lexi seemed ok, she wasn't as close to Sarah as the rest of the kids. Jacob asked why, and I explained the best I could. No one really knows why these things happen. I then told Kadie and Adam that we won't be able to see Miss Sarah anymore, she was now in Heaven. Kadie buried her head in my shoulder and gave me a big hug. Adam was the cutest of them all... he said, "I go to heaven too?" to which I replied, "Someday" and he shouted "Yay!" Later in the day when I was going up to Sears Portrait to see Victoria (we worked with Sarah), Adam wanted to go. I told him no I was going by myself to see Miss Victoria. He started to pout, put his head in my chest and whined, "No wanna see Miss Toria, me see Miss Sarah!" I wanted to cry. My poor baby! He really loved her. As we all did...

Bri, I'm really sorry. I don't know what to say other than your kids have another angel in heaven looking down upon them. Life is so unfair sometimes but she passed away knowing how much love a person could have. You're a good friend.
