And this is one more reason that makes losing Franklin pretty tough...you see, Kristin passed away unexpectedly from complications following an emergency surgery just a couple of months after the fair in 2002. Losing a child is something no parent should ever have to endure. My faith has sustained me through this loss all these years. I don't know where I would be today without my relationship with Christ and I cannot fathom walking through such depths without Him.
When we chose our daughter's headstone, it was only fitting that Franklin join in honoring her short life. There is a small tribute page to her on our website but nothing on this earth can fill the loss. Our hope is in Christ and eternity in Heaven, where we will see her again...some day.
Rest easy, sweet boy. Snuggle kisses to Kristin!
We'll see you all soon...
