I've been cleaning for this family since early 2005,in the last year and a half I have gotten close to the lady. She's only 4 years older than me and has been sick...so sick that she had to quit working and uses a cane and sometimes a walker and wheel chair. So when I go over there we would talk and laugh and even cry together. We joke and have a contest as to who is going to be a g-ma first.One of my houses you could say I looked forward to cleaning.
After a year and a half of spending thousands of $$$ and seeing tons of drs and getting poked,scanned,proded and everything imaginable she was FINALLY diagnosed with MD less than 2 weeks ago.
She has one boy that passed about 5 years ago. One that lives in Little Rock and the youngest is in Irag. This morning she called me and let me know her youngest committed suicide Monday evening in Iraq. My heart aches for her. What do you say to someone who has lost one child much less two in five years? I spent a couple hours with her this morning and was speechless...except for I'm sorry,what do you say?
Please keep our soldiers in your prayers...and their family. Please keep my friend and her family in your prayers.
