A very, very dear friend of mine lost her husband yesterday morning.
He was 38.
They have two children, ages 4 and 7.
No words can express how sad I feel for her and her family.
I wish I could take away all of their pain.

There is a group of us that talk several times a day on a message board. We are all trying to pull together for her, to help her and her sons. Everyone has made such generous contributions.

Lisa Pace has an auction up on her blog now. 100% of the proceeds will go to our friend. I ask you to please check it out right here.

Thanks so much!

Rachael - your friend has been on my mind so much since you told us earlier this week about what happened. I've said prayers and will continue to and hope that she finds peace during this terrible time. My heart also goes out to you & all your friends knowing how much you all wish you were closer to be able to help her through this in person.
