God bless you, sweet princess, as you rest peacefully with your precious Mom and sister, watching over your loving family and friends who miss you and hold you so dear to their hearts.
I found Katelyn when I was researching my family and felt so bad, reading that she left this world so young. It troubled me that her precious mother and sister had both gone before her and wondered what happened. Was it a car accident? I had no idea. Then today, I decided to go to the cemetery to find 3 of my cousins. Lo and behold, the first graves I stumbled upon, were these precious twins and their dear mother. I KNEW God played a part in this and lead me to them, so I took pictures and came home. I set out to do some research as to what happened and the story that unfolded was heartbreaking. Here is the link to the story of their short lives, as it unfolded. I wanted to print it here, but thought it was something that you might like to read on your own and in its entirety.
Genetic illness unfolds trio of tragedy
God bless this loving family as they cope with the losses of these dear angels. I don't know how they've done it but I do know that If God can bring you to it, He will bring you through it. Tom and the rest of the family must have a strong faith in Him, which is definitely evident in the news article.
Please leave them all flowers. Thank you.
