I would much rather have stayed in bed on this cold morning. Instead, I knew that I had to do the right thing. Our friends lost their son last Saturday. His funeral was this morning. We had spent many months together at Children's Hospital as their son was having BMT the same time as Cameron. This scene has replayed too many times. Too many young lives lost to cancer. Thank goodness some friends saw me sitting alone and allowed me to join them in their row. So, to them I give my sincere thanks.
Please keep Matthew's family in your prayers during this most difficult time: www.caringbridge.org/visit/matthewbarr
