    Hi everyone,

    One of the duties of my job is to make phone calls to the people who are late on their monthly payments to our school, Iam always VERY kind and nice to these people since I understand how hard things are for "most" people financially in today's world................. PLUS I always try to treat others the way I want to be treated it is just my way.................:)


    However..........there is a young couple and we have called them several times to come in and make a payment and they have not done so............my boss was kind of frustrated and asked me to call them and said they must come in and make a payment right away...................


    So, I called them and the husband answered the phone......although I was nice I did tell him I needed to know when they would be coming in to make their payment that was so late......................

    The husband said " I do not know when we will be able to come in and he sounded like he was crying.........he went on to say that his baby son had died yesterday.........

    "Well my heart just sank"! He and his wife were my students and although I didn't know their baby son, I always saw the sparkle in their eyes when they talked of him.......

    I asked what happened and he said they went in to repair his heart and he didn't make it!

    Iam so devastated ............my heart is aching for this cute little couple and the pain they are in.......losing a child has to be one of the worst things a parent could ever ever go through.............and I feel even more awful for calling to collect their late payment..........but I had no idea what had happened......
    I reassured the father of this little baby boy, not to even think about the payment for now..but I can't get this tragic sadness of the loss of their son off of my mind!

    For those of you who pray could you please pray for this young couple who are absolutely devastated at the loss of their sweet innocent baby boy!

    Hugs and thanks

    Oh Doxy, I am surprised you could think of anything to say to the father at all with this news! I'll bet you felt as if you had been punched in the gut, didn't you?

    Bless those parent's hearts, I cannot even imagine the depths of their sorrow right now. Many prayers go up to them as well as to you, because I know the news has you torn to bits right now.

    Doxy, how devastating for all of you. That would be such a gratifying thing to raise money to help pay for their classes if possible. So sorry to hear about this...

    and if they knew I came here for them, and that you cared and sent your prayers.............they would be so grateful and thankful!

    We are having a hard time financially since my auto accident....... but.............. Iam going to make a small payment for them, even if it is only enough to keep their account from going to our collections agency, and "yes" that is an excellent idea Iam going to try to get others to help too, I will post a collection fund for them monday when I get to work!

    Thank you for your prayers for this family they NEED them so much right now!

    A card......I know Hallmark has this and maybe some others do also.......
    It is called "THE ROSE" or "THE ROSE BEYOND THE WALL"......
    and send to anyone that loses a child or someone they truely love........

    I got one after the death of my dear baby daughter many years ago. I wept as I read it, over and over again, it was healing to some extent, it helped me through the beginning of the grief.......So beautiful.....

    Please read it......and you might feel the desire to buy a couple to have on hand, and one for your own keeping.

    Your story touches us all and reminds us of what is really important in life...... Blessings
