It Is Just Not Right...

ORIGINALLY POSTED FRIDAY NIGHT 02/03/06...

Mommy is putting up a post about Rebekah right now; please see that post.

I wanted to share some emotions. Another of our kiddo friends (Warren) who has made remarkable recovery and doing very had this on their blog “Mark took Warren to Nicolette's funeral this morning.” This really touched me. It is not right that our kids should have to go to funerals for their friends. It is not right that we, as parents, should attend these funerals and have to wonder the whole time what we would do for our kid’s funeral. It is not right that a 3 or 4 year old should have more medical knowledge than most adults. It is not right. It is just not right.

That's sad. But just this morning I was thinking about a childhood friend of mine who died. Her name was Jocelyn. Jocelyn became famous locally, maybe accross Canada for the way she turned her mourning to joy and her bravery in the face of death. It's always stuck with me, but I'll never forget her. She died of cancer when I was in grade nine. I often think that because of her, my sister and I aren't afraid of death. I hope these kids are able to glean peace out of it too.

Another dear child has had to use the wings they earned a long time ago for their trip to Heaven. Cameron ( http://www2.caringbridge.org/ct/cameron/ )was asked to put on his wings Friday morning. Please add his family to your prayers. He was so full of love and happiness and so brave. His family was blessed to have him, as he was to have them. You are so right though, it's not fair. It's just NOT fair! *sigh*

Dear Scott and Francis, I'm glad to hear that Rebekah is doing well. Will's bone marrow results came back free of cancer again. I think I will always worry. I guess that is part cancer part me being a mom. On Feb. 13-17 We get to go to Seattle for Will's Make-A-Wish. We get a tour of Microsoft and Will gets to meet Bill Gates. We are all very excited! Eventually we will put pictures on Will's caringbridge website. We'll let you know when. Love, Jill
