As a writer, I am seldom at a loss for words, but I clicked reply and then just stared at the empty white space for a long time, What can anyone say that would ease the pain of such a devastating tragedy? All I can say is that I'm so, so sorry for all that you've had to suffer and I hope you know that your "forum family" is always here if you need to talk, rant, ask for prayers, or seek comfort in any way.
As a mother, I can't comprehend the pain you've endured. It breaks my heart just thinking about it.
I'm so sorry.
