Dear Brenda I am speechless and my heart is heavy. So wonderful of you and yes this is devastating and I can't begin to imagine the sorrow. All our prayers go out to Andrea and she is one amazing person dealing with so much pain. I have to wait until monday to nominate unless someone else will. Brenda thank you so much. Hugs to you.

No words, Brenda, and none are necessary. A touching write that brought a lump to my throat.
Brenda, When we hear about such things we get scared, and this devastating thing is happening in life of our dear friend, Andrea.
It is a heart breaking moment for pnq family too.
How could one stop himself from not complaining to the heavens about it?
Or to stop himself from not saying offensive words at the hell?
How could one be strong in that moment when doctors say they are unable to make their beloved well?
I am sure whosoever is aware of this unfortunate situation is thinking good for Andrea's family in one way or another.
Many of us is praying to God, please glow the sun of hope in Andrea's life once again. So, that this fog of disease which has completely covered her family in darkness gone once for all and she could see her baby bird flying high in the sky once again covered with rays of sunshine, warming her heart too.
She could form words around her once again on an endless summer day. They sing the song of togetherness beneath starry skies. Her heart is no more shattered, no more choked with smoke of the melancholy and she could find her way out of it.
This poem is an extension to Andrea's poem 'it's raining', but in your words.
Like her you have portrayed the same emotions of a mother who is broken, out of hope.
Brenda, you write less with simplicity, but it always powerful. To be honest, it is heartbreaking too.
All this, Andrea's going through is becoming very hard for me to read, but if these little tributes of our bring feeling of relief to Andrea's and her daughter in any way, it's good, isn't it?
You, David and many others are doing it every day and as a pnq 'r I am thankful to all of you.
