Oh Faye,

I am so sorry that you lost your dear son. That is so hard and you are very brave, I can tell.

I wanted to share that I, also, weighed 10/9. My poor mom. I was her first and last. She had two step-children and though she didn't labor for them at birth, she labored for them through life.

Thanks for sharing.
