Sadness

I heard from a mutual friend a couple of months ago, about this one family. The Ronnes are a very inspiring family. They are a young couple. I'm not sure of ages, but they are young. They have three young children. They had been doing missionary work in Albania and came back to the States before their third child was born. Kaci, the mother, was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer a few months ago. Apparently, she had been having really bad headaches after their second little girl was born. She finally went to get it checked out, and discovered a tumor. They did a biopsy and found it to be cancerous. So began many months of treatment for Kaci. I have followed their blog, and have been inspired by her husband's strength and faith. Unfortunately, Kaci lost her Earthly battle Saturday morning, but we can all take comfort in the fact that she is no longer suffering. Please feel free to stop by and say Hi and send your condolences to the Ronne's here. If you have time, read through what they have been through the past few months. It is heart-wrenching, and I end up crying hysterically when I think about her story. It really touches a chord with me (and probably many mothers out there) as her children are so very young. I believe they are all under 5 or 6 (one boy and two girls-the baby is around 8-9months I think). So if you feel up to it, please stop by and send your condolences and help them celebrate Kaci's life.
