There's A New Angel In Heaven

Out of respect for my family I waited until this morning to post this.

I got such terrible news yesterday when we answered the phone. My beautiful great-great-niece, Eleanor Rose, had passed away. She was only 3 months old. Lee-Anne had gone to check on her yesterday morning and Ellie wouldn't wake up.

The ambulance was called as were the police. It's protocol apparently. Lee-Anne and her partner were interviewed by detectives. I guess they need to make sure that there was no foul play or anything. I'm not sure what happens now. An autopsy I guess.

My poor nieces and my sister, Vicki, are beside themselves. I just feel so bad for Lee-Anne. This is the second daughter she has lost. Aroarah died when she was in utero at around 20 weeks gestation.

I never would have though in a million years that our family would have a sudden infant death happen. I mean why would you think it? It just doesn't happen.

It is just so unfair. I think these girls have gone through enough already. I can only imagine how awful they are feeling right now. Please send some comforting thoughts and prayers their way. I know they need it.

Rest in Peace little angel.
