Quote for the day

Bereaved People are like Ducks:

Above the Surface.....Looking Composed and Unruffled
Below the Surface.....Paddling Like Crazy

Keep on "paddling" Andrea! I think you do an amazing job at staying "unruffled" when I would be a squawking nightmare if I were in your place. :) Love you!

You really are amazing! What a great quote. Keep "paddling" even though people don't understand it or try to ignore all the work you are doing! You are so great and I love you!

Hi Andrea, this is Kellie (Robyn's niece). I just want you to know that I've been reading your blog on and off for the past several months and you have really touched my spirit.
You have made me want to reach to greater heights and to be a better mother and daughter of God.
Thank you for your amazing testimony and example.

I found your blog through Cheryl's. I was really touched by your loss. I get weak in the knees thinking about losing a child. Our hearts go out to you and your family! The balloons with the note on their birthday is a tradition I have kept since I was 14 and lost my little brother. That connection is important. I hope we get a chance to see you this summer at the reunion. My wife thought your youngest daughter is an absolute angel!
