Rocked to the Core

I had a different post in mind today, but I just cannot bring myself to write it.  I just cannot.

Our Down syndrome community has been rocked to the core and no matter how I try to look at it, I cannot get my mind to wrap around what has happened.

I am asking for thoughts and/or prayers.  Nearly 18 months ago, the George family lost their daughter Carly unexpectedly.  Carly had Ds and they believe she might have passed due to a seizure.  I cannot imagine the pain and emptiness.  This past weekend, tragedy struck again at full-force.  Their house burned down and in that fire was their son Brad.  Brad did not survive and he too received his angel wings.   This family has been through so much and to lose their house filled with memories and two kids in the matter of less than 2 years is unfathomable.  I KNOW that Carly and Brad are together with their angel wings, but I just cannot imagine how the George family is going to cope here on this earth.

Shouting WHY?!?!  is not healthy so I am asking for prayers or thoughts.  Please please please pray for this family.



  1. I can't imagine what that family is going through. Sending prayers and strength to them. My heart breaks for their losses. :(

  2. a few people has this posted...I can't even wrap my head around it...praying for peace...with tears in my eyes
