I checked the Mannings’ blog just about every time I walked past the computer today. Just now, I came by and saw the post I had hoped I wouldn’t have to see. Katie passed away this afternoon and I’m at a loss for words. I only wish Alan and Vickie, who we only know through our blogs, weren’t on the other side of the country. They have been courageous parents over the last five months and such a comfort to us. Now we pray for peace and comfort for them as they mourn their little Munchkin.
