Today Alex, six years old, when asked by a family friend what his favorite picture of his late little sister was, picked out one of Abby with her dolls right after Christmas. This friend asked why this was his favorite and he pointed to her glossy eyes. “She has tears in her eyes. She was saying ‘I don’t want to go.’ But she had to go soon.” Caleb, four, looked up and said, “Yeah, she’s gone now.”
And I had to leave the room.
