This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Empty Room Empty Heart

I carried the last item out of Frances' room this morning so that the carpet cleaner can come. As I walked through the doorway with the last box in hand an eerie feeling of emptiness swept over me. I teared up. I carried the box down the hall, set it down in the living room, and went back to the empty room.

As I walked into the empty room it was just that, an empty room. For the first time it wasn't Frances' room anymore, it was just an empty room; much like my heart isn't Frances' anymore, it's just empty. I stood there and bawled.

I cannot imagine how difficult this is for you, and for the girls. Hopefully each day you will have joy among your sorrows.
