I didn't read or know Shana (Gorillabuns), but I heard the news of the death of her son and was instantly torn apart. (I direct you here, as well.) I didn't know her beautiful, redheaded baby boy, but with one glance I can see that's my loss. In times like these, when the world seems crueler than kind and when nothing makes much sense, words just fail us. Words don't exist in this language or any other to convey how unfair something like this is, how plain wrong it is for a child to be taken from his mother. God could never convince me there's a reason.
If you feel moved, please give a little or a lot to Shana and her family. No one should have to worry about hospital and funeral costs when dealing with this much grief and heartbreak. If we can lighten her burden, we should. I didn't know her or her family and many of you don't either, I know, but we should help her. That much I know to be true.
Please visit here to donate (in addition to the previously linked to site that also has donation information).
And, please, please, please, love your family a little extra today.
Shana, I can't imagine you'll find this page, but if you do, please know I'll keep you and your son in my heart today and every day of forever.
