. . . Circle of Life

As we welcomed Baby Keller into our world, we said goodbye to my mom. She bravely fought for a year with a terrible illness, following a five year "survival" from breast cancer. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and encouragement throughout. And I thank the nursing staff and many others at the Mobile Infirmary wing where mom became known as Mrs. Joan to so many caregivers. They saw us through this past year with such compassion and genuine concern for my mom's well being. I know she felt blessed to know Baby Keller arrived on Monday safely and that Jennifer was recovering well. Shortly thereafter, her condition became acute....suddenly worsened while already in a critical phase. Now, mom has gone on to Heaven and, Wow! now she finally sees Keller! As a Twitter friend said, I'm glad I have this baby to fill my aching heart.
