One more post

We're back from Florida. Our trip was not "fun" but I still think it was a good choice. Now that we are home we are getting down to the serious business of grieving . We cleaned up Sarah's room today. Just tidying up not really going through her things. Ben and I worked on it together and we cried and then we cried some more. After a while Katie and Betsy came up and cried with us.

Thank you to every one who has sent cards, flowers, and notes of sympathy. The ones we have received with a hand written note have been particularly meaningful.

There will only be one or two more new posts to Sarah's Circle. Ben doesn't feel he can continue with it since she is no longer with us. We will post the slide show from her wake and that will be it. For those who wish to keep up with how our family is doing as we grieve and try to move on we will start a new blog.

If you are reading this and you feel like bringing dinner or washing a load of laundry..... I haven't been doing so great with much.

Not much to say except the ache in our hearts is unrelenting and our sorrow the deepest of sorrows. We miss Sarah so much. We miss her between us in our bed, we miss taking care of her, hearing her voice, getting those sweet little kisses and hugs. The sad list goes on.

The past year has been so hard on every one. It is definitely going to take a while to figure out how to live again. So before we start trying to think all of that through we decided to take a trip. We are taking all of the children down to Florida. Hopefully it will go well.
