Loss of a Friend

For those of you who are close to me, you know that I have been very involved with a twins message board for almost a year now. I have made some wonderful friends through this. I actually had the pleasure of meeting a friend and her twin girls. As soon as we saw each other, it was like we had always known each other! Great bonds have been formed as we go through this twin pregnancy and now journey together.

Yesterday we lost a dear twin mommy friend. Tammy's twin boys, Ben and Kyle, were born one week before Jack and Ian. Tammy told us many times how excited she had been to find out she was pregnant and what a double thrill it was to find out that it was with twins. She was always such a light to our board.

As a testament to what kind of person she was, Tammy donated her organs so that other could sustain their lives.

Today, my prayers are with her husband, babies and family. She will be missed by many.

**As Tammy and her family are on my mind today, a praise song came to mind. The chorus says "You give and take away." I am reminded that however unfair death seems to our earthly minds, God has a bigger plan. Yes, it is still incredibly sad to loose someone. But knowing that He has control and all the answers gives me great peace.

Krista,
I know how it is possible to feel very connected to someone without ever meeting them in person. I know that you have that type of relationship with many of your message board friends. I am SO very sorry for the loss that you all are feeling right now. I am praying for you and all the women who knew Tammy. I will also pray for her family and her kids. I can't imagine what they must be feeling right now.
I love ya,
Jenn
