Francine post:

Hug your baby today...

A lifetime ago, I taught preschool. In my first class, there was a beautiful little girl. Sweet little smile, perfect hair (quite a feat for a 4 year old) and spoke barely any English. When she didn't understand what I said, she just smiled. At naptime, she would ask me to rub her cheek to help her sleep. In the first few weeks, she would ask for her sister Vickie to come and visit her.

It's been 7 months since her death and I saw a poster of her today. Her family had set up a foundation to campaign for safe driving - www.rebekaverafoundation.org

I have not seen her in more than 10 years and now she is gone. Suddenly I miss her.
