In remembrance of Francie and her children.

She was an MDC mama, had a daughter with the same name as one of mine, and even though I never met her or knew her, I feel the world is a much sadder place without her and her beautiful children.


If you are on FB, here is a tribute group:
Francie's Group


 2/02, 4/05, 2/07, 11/09, and EDD 12/25/11 wave.gif

This is so horrifyingly sad. Poor mama and babies. Mental illness is a terrible thing.

grateful mother to DD, 1/04, and DS, 2/08

OMG

When I saw this on the news and they mentioned her 2 yr old was in bed with her it briefly crossed my mind that this might have been an MDC mama.
