A few days ago I posted this...written by a friend of mine.
She was moved by the response and emailed me her thoughts:
To all of Danielle's IS Family,
I cant even begin to tell you how overwhelmed I have been this past week with your response to "The 5 things..." that I wrote for Danielle. When I wrote the blog I never thought it would be seen by so many. As each of you know, sometimes thoughts rumble around in your head and you write them a million times up there and then finally you just have to put them on paper. Ever since reconnecting with Danielle through FB, I began to recognize the struggles she was having. They were the same struggles I remember my mom and dad having as they dealt with my sister's death from Juvenile Diabetes. I have so much I wish to say to each of you but I am going to take my own advice and just say, I love each of you even though I dont know you, I pray for you as a Family and for your children individually and I hope that through the coming months each of you will find healing and good friends to support you.
