The Newest Angel

How do I comfort a friend who lost her daughter today?
What do I say that won’t sound trite or cliche?
Is there anything I can do to take some of the sorrow away?

Katie was actually the reason I spent so much time with the Mugeles, at least at the beginning. When I was still a young high school student, I learned to use her feeding tube and adjust her oxygen levels and set up her wheelchair. She is such a huge part of my life with the Mugele family, it’s hard to imagine life without her.

But Katie walked for the first time today!
The first words she ever spoke were to her Father.
Pretty freakin’ awesome, huh?

I love you, Katie. I’ll miss you a lot.

  1. This is so cool, I am glad that you were able to help this family and enjoy their precious child. With my new job here in Anchorage, AK I am working at a non-profit organization that works with families that have children with disabilities. I don’t work with them direcly, I work in the maintenance department. Armin
