My other 2 (soon to be 3) grandchildren were here over the weekend as well with my daughter. Sunday, … Continue reading Lazy Lies

All gone. Those were the words of finality that were expressed today at the loss of my daughter's new pregnancy. This would have been her and her husband's third child.
