For Jen

This is for Jen, Mark, big sister Olivia, tiny Ainsley and sweet Evelyn.

I keep going back to her blog waiting for the "April Fools!" post where she in her normal sassy, spunky tone tells us how she really had us going. I re-read the words expecting to realize some other meaning. I heard recently a very profound thing: they call someone who lost a spouse a widow/widower, they call someone who has lost their parents an orphan, but there is no name for someone who has lost a child because it is the most terrible of things, there isn't a name for it. If you could, gentile readers, send thoughts or prayers to the 'Jennepper' family.
