Last week was a long one. I was ready for it to be over. The boys had Spring break so things were even more out of routine. I had way too much time on my hands no matter how much I tried to stay busy. On Friday the boys, Leeann(Kyle's gf), and I made a trip to the cemetary. I took Easter flowers and a lawn rabbit for Hannah's grave. I think I did o.k. It's hard. The grave is still relatively fresh so it's ugly. The ugliness of it really bothers me. I know that sounds strange but it's the way I feel. I'm thinking about ways to change that.

This morning was my first day in PPCD at Franklin. I really enjoyed it. The kids are awesome. All boys. Hannah would have LOVED it. Nothing has felt "right" since she passed away. Today felt right. I look forward to next time.

Thank you for your prayers and support! They mean the world to us!

Your grief must have been unimaginable in proportion. I have a new son and am also a great lover of dogs, and I am floored by your story and the strength, poise, and love engendered by all involved. Your daughter was lovely, and from your stories I gather she was funny, clever, and an entertainer. I know Easter has got to be hard, but I just wanted you to know how affected I was by your story. omeone needs to write it.

Hello Marcey,

I tried to email you, but it bounced back to me. I hope this message finds you doing as well as can be expected. I imagine (can see) that you are missing Hannah very much this spring.

I am writing to ask for your permission to include a memorial article about Hannah in the upcoming April issue of Channeling In, the quarterly newsletter of the IDEA League. I have attached a draft of the article we propose to use for your review. If you agree, we would also like to include a photo of Hannah. If so, would you please email me a recent photo? Good quality close-ups with high resolution work best in our electronic newsletters, which are published on the web and emailed to our subscribers. You can see previous issues at this link if that would be helpful:

Karen Glenn, our newsletter editor, will be doing the layout for this issue during the coming week, so we hope to hear from you soon.

Thank you. Our thoughts continue to be with you and your family.
