Back in June my Mom's friend became a grandma, but her little boy Peyton went to heaven shortly after his birth to live with the angels and his big sister. Many of you after hearing her story sent her a card just letting her know you cared. Yesterday, Mom got this letter in the mail. We are sharing it with you now.
Dear Friends from Deb's (Stella Rose) Blog,
Just wanted to send you our sincere thanks for your caring thoughts and prayers during this very sad time in our lives. It was so kind of all of you to send the wonderful cards. We received cards from the West Coast to the East Coast and everywhere in between and from as far away as Canada and England.
Update on our daughter: She is still going to PT 2x a week in Iowa City which is about a 2 hours away but is beginning to show improvement in her walking and speech. We are still waiting to hear more about her eyesight. She is very sad about the loss of Peyton but dealing day by day. Deb and I go back a long way (1st grade) and she has helped me thru some tuff times. They say you never know when you're going to make a friend....but you always know when you've found a great one! Deb is one of those and I am so glad you have gotten to know her (and the pugs) thru her blog. I showed her my treasure of cards and she was proud of all of you for responding to our need.
Just think how many friendships began when a little pug named Stella found her way into Deb's heart. We tend to be Yorkie folks but I have a very special grandpug who is blind. While I have no grandchildren living here on Earth (yet) I do have 8 granddogs ranging from a Yorkie to a Mastiff.
Our hearts are broken....Our arms are empty..but our memories and your thoughtfulness comfort us. Thank you so much.
