Heavy Heart

I hate to hijack Murph's blog, but I will for this one post. My friends who were staying with me after Hurricane Ike had another son, a wonderful, crazy, loving son who was battling leukemia. Today I found out that he lost his battle and passed away. My heart is breaking for the family and words can't express how I feel. Someone I know once wrote :

"There just aren't any words. There's just love. And prayers. And more love."

And love there is. Johnny Romano, I love you and may you now be at peace.

Kathleen,
I'm so sorry to hear about Johnny. I can't even imagine how you're feeling or how his family is coping right now. It must be heartbreaking to have to see a little one lose a battle with this disease. I'm sure he fought bravely and was an inspiration to many, and in his short life taught his family & friends about courage and love.

My thoughts are with you and his family.
