My oldest son and his fiancee are very close to another young couple with children. Alec (Tommy's fiancee) babysat for them for free a lot because they couldn't afford to pay for childcare. I had met John, but never Mandy or their children.
This morning I got up and hit the grocery store and when I got home, Tommy told me that their baby, a 4 month old little girl named Siddalee, didn't wake up this morning. That when they went in to get her, she was cold and blue.
I can only assume it was SIDS, but they don't really know anyting yet. I'm just so sad. Any time I hear of a baby dying it just rips my heart out for the family, especially the mom. I guess having lost 2 of my own makes it hit closer to home for me.
I know they can't afford a funeral and head stone, so I'm starting a funeral fund for the baby. If you'd like to donate, you can use the chipin donate button above (donations go through Paypal) or email me for my home address.
PS: The Chip In widget says Nov 28th, but in truth, they need it by Oct 28th - I've adjusted the settings at ChipIn but the widget isn't showing the change yet.
