Dear Cindy and Jeff;
Patrick, Dennis and Elizabeth ~
I was stunned to hear of
your tragedy. We take for granted these days that certain things will go all right.
My deepest sadness is for
Cindy, because I too have carried children for nine long months. Full of expectation,
eager to have the birthing over with. I empathize with the emptiness you must now be
I do not intend to dwell on
dragging you through this pain again, but must tell you that we are all saddened and
disappointed that sweet little Nathan Elliot's life which had been so full of promise such
a short while before ended so abruptly.
It is bitter-sweet that you
were able to hold him, have him for a little while. Each one of you feels this
trouble deeply. If I could magically find some comforting word for each one it would
also be gift for myself as well. Unfortunately, yours is a very heartfelt loss we
just can't understand.
Please know we send our love
with this note along with sincere wishes that your blessings will find a way to come to
the front of your lives again. You have a dear little ambassador in a place where we
all will be eventually.
