Jen, You write so eloquently and with such expression and clarity that your feelings and emotions, without need for provocation, pour out of your words.

It isn’t fair yet still we the living are left to coup with the reality. But I think it’s beautiful that you still account for Hannah sharing your life and experiences as you go along. She’s still alive and will stay that way in your, and your family, and friends thoughts and prayers.

Eloise looks so adorable and lovable; and so full of life and exploration and energy. I can hardly wait to meet her. Hope that when you have time and weather permitting that we can arrange a visit here or there together.

And as always if you have need for anything that we can provide, please don’t hesitate to ask.
