Once again, I know that you don't know me, but I have recently been following your blog. You have taken us all with you on this journey. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a lucky woman to have such a loving and dedicated son. I am sure she passed with peace knowing that she raised a child who loved her, and turned into a loving father. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Chris, Paul, and sweet Kensington,

Please accept my most sincere condolences as you grieve the earthly loss of your mother, mother in law, and grandmother.

I am just a random reader who was captivated by your lovely family and humerous prose. The joy that has bloomed within you as you have become parents has truly been a wonder to behold, and I thank you for sharing it with us.

My fervent prayer for you is that you be comforted in the days and weeks to come; that you see your beloved Mazha in every breeze, in each sunrise, in every delightful laugh that escapes Kensington Grace's lips.

Praying for you in Austin,
Liz
