I 'accidently' found Kate's book just this past Thursday, 4/12 in our church library. While sitting through choir practice with my husband (he sings, I don't)I picked this book off the shelf, knowing nothing about Kate or her story. Since then I have read the book twice and am on my 3rd time. It is a magnificent book, tellinsuch a good story, extremely touching. Then just awhile ago I found the notice about Little Drew. Unbelievable. I can't stop crying.
My love to all of the family, amid your surrows.....
may you have greater high moments...may you accept these words from a stranger. PS - I don't believe in 'accidents'..I was led to Kate's book.
