I can still feel his warm, squishy body against mine...his head laying on my chest. I can hear his adorable little voice singing the ABC song. I miss him.
On this day last year, our precious friend Samuel passed away from complications of mitochondrial disease. My heart has hurt all week thinking about him. And it has hurt even more thinking about his family. Today will no doubt be very tough for them. I wish I could take this pain away from my dear friends.
I pray that we will be able to see Nathan graduate some day. I pray that he will someday fall in love with a dear woman so that I can cry at his wedding. I pray that he will have the opportunity to carry on the Ferrell name by bringing children of his own into the world. The reality of this disease is tough, but it doesn't mean that we don't have hope. Hope for a cure.
Please pray for the Knight family today and all the other families who have recently lost their children to this insidious disease.
