My dear friends,

I want to thank you all from the depths of my heart for your e-mails
and comments here.

Words of comfort and encouragement go a very long way when you find yourself
in the midst of a dark, dark time.

Today I feel a stirring of hope,
a shred of peace,
and a huge amount of love.

Love FROM..
and FOR ..

the many people in my life
and those, also, in JennyWren's life,
and the lives of her children she fought so hard to protect.

And where there is love,
there IS
there IS

That is what I am wishing and praying for Rella. That you feel love, hope and peace.

You have been in my thoughts sooo much! Your grief was so tangible even over the internet. You will have good days and bad days, but hang onto that love because hope will surely follow. (((hugs)))

Dear Rella, I have lost a brother and a sister, not under the same circumstances, they were killed in car wrecks 20 years apart. My sister was 19 and my brother was 45. Their memories are with me always. Sometimes it hurts so bad still that I can't breath. Know, you are being thought of and prayed for dear one. xo Nita

Rella, my sweet friend. Thank you for sharing the picture of Jenny Wren with us. She was beautiful just like you.

I want you to know that I am creating a doll today that I have to do for a book deal (3 of them) and one of them I am dedicating to Jenny Wren. It will be months until I get it back. The publishers have to take photos but when I do, she will be sent to you honey.

Just wanted to let you know that I am creating and thinking of you and your sister. saying prayers too.

Dearest Rella,
I just today learned of your sister's death. There are not words to express how very sorry I feel for you and your family. Please know you are in my thoughts. If there is anything I can do, please let me know.

I won't say that I understand because I don't. But I will say that you have my hand holding yours and many angels are enfolding you in their loving wings.... feel their peace, dear Rella - much love to you xoxo

oh my God I am so very very sorry to hear of your pain. To hear of Jenny's Pain.

I know that you must be in a very strange place now and for a long while. I am sorrier than I could ever tell you here.

I will be thinking of You.

This must be almost Unbearable.

Much Love to Both of You.

so glad to see you at my blog. i've been thinking about you so much. i agree with another poster, your grief was felt through the internet. i literally went numb after reading your post - virtual shock so to speak. you will find that there are so many of us who've suffered through terrible things. the whole addage, time heals all wounds is true. i've been grieving for 17 years for my son. it doesn't go away, but gets easier day by day.
my best to you rella,

my thoughts and prayers are still with you and yours....
