A friend

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon with my friend Tricia (who I wrote about here). I was visiting her new home for the first time. When I visited her last in her old home, I was touched to see she had a picture of Henry sitting on a bookcase.

It's the kind of thing that could easily get tucked into a box and not make it out during a move. But there he was. She said that people see the picture and ask if it is her daughter (you know, the oxygen and all), and she tells them it's Henry. And when they ask who Henry is, she tells them he's a friend.

And she is an amazing friend, one I never would have met without Henry, and I'm so glad to know her.


  1. A few special people we know have Hope's birth annoucment card still on thier fridge. Warms my heart so much.
    What a great friend Tricia is.

  2. so very touching -- you are lucky to have such a friend!

  3. That's lovely.

    He's a friend. Beautiful. x

  4. This is just beautiful. I'm glad you have this friend and that she remembers Henry in this special way.

    He is so beautiful, your Henry.

  5. Sara-- Thank you so much for visiting and commenting on my blog. I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Henry. What a beautiful, beautiful boy. I'm so glad that you have friends who help you remember your sweet son. I want to spend more time reading your story when I have the emotional energy (I can relate), but please know that for now, you inspire me and give me hope. Thank you.
