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.

We have been praying for y'all every single day. We think of you and Sarah in all we do.
We are glad you are back home safely and that the trip was a good choice.
We will continue to lift you up in prayer and we hope to see you again in the near future.
I'd like to come bring you a meal, could you call me or email me directions?
You're all in our hearts,

Wish I was closer and could simply come over and do your laundry for you, cook a meal and clean the kitchen, or simply sit and visit and share lots of hugs and tears.

The miles may seperate us, but your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. Susan remember the laundry will wait, and peanut butter sandwiches will ward off hunger. Find time for Susan as God slowly heals your broken heart, takes away the sorrow and eases your pain.

I love you very much!
your NC cousin

Ben and Susan,
Know that I am thinking of you through this time. Not a day goes by that I am not praying for you all. You are certainly missed, thought about, and prayed for by many of us here. Both of you, along with Sarah have made such an impact on my life and have an incredibly special place in my heart.
With prayers, Danielle Salvas, RN

I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a a really beautiful little girl and obviously loved by her family so very much. Stay strong and hold onto each other; it is what will get you through. I know how incredibly painful the first months were and you are in my prayers for the strength to get through these first and toughest of days.
