Hi Sandy... Good to hear from you so soon... We were in Florida for 10 days returning on Dec. 23rd just in time for this lovely blizzard.My parents live in Zephyrhills, FL about 30 miles east of Tampa.My mom is 91 and my dad 82.I'm 49.Besides my husband, Jim, we have a 15 year old daughter Caitlyn Arden at home.After our tragedy 2 years ago, we were in contact with wonderful people at Compassionate friends.In all of this other people like yourself have offered their own heartache of losing children.It's a club I never thought I'd be joining, but none of us are immune to tragedy.It helps to know that you have survived the death of your daughter, but I also know that, as you have said, you never forget.I'm sorry for your loss and when the time comes I will love grandchildren around, too.
I don't know your cousin who lives near the Orson church, but we have acquaintances, the Ripple's who live across from the church. (He is blind), but we haven't seen them for a couple of years.
Enjoy the warmer weather in Florida!
If I find out anything more on the family I'll let you know. It was great meeting you(so to speak) Take care!
