Last year I shared with you the death of my friends' son Albert. Since late last year I have been waiting to share their joy of a new child ~ a daughter.
Esther was born just after midnight on April 21; I am heartbroken to tell you she died on April 24.
I have been trying for hours to collect my thoughts, to quell my tears, to find words to convey how much I care about them. I do not understand how sad, unfair and crule life is ~ I cannot answer why.
I have faith that their love will sustain them, but I am afraid their grief will make them shadows of their former selves.
