Update on us...(loss ment)
Wed, 05-05-2004 - 8:11am
Well, we got home on Monday and we are completely devestated.  This was the worst thing that has ever happened to us.  We walk around the house not knowing what to do.  Thank God that our friends and family bring us food because we would forget to eat.  Nothing seems important anymore.  We just wonder why God would give us this miracle only to steal it away so harshly.


I went through 13 hours of intense pain and labor.  We had a little boy who we named Matthew William Schwab, he was so small but perfect.  Al, my Mom and Al's parents were there and we all held him and said our goodbyes.  It was a very bittersweet moment, one that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.  We had to go to the funeral home and make arrangements for our son yesterday and it was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do in my life. 


Thank you everyone for all of your phone calls, emails, prayers, cards, flowers, and well wishes, we are truly blessed to have such wonderful friends.  I don't know if or when I will be back to the board, but know that I will continue to keep you all in my thoughts and prayers!


Love and hugs,

Dear Justine,

I know that words could not possibly be enough. I can't imagine what you and Al are going through. I'm sorry that Matthew is no longer with you. I will be praying for you both.

Love & Hugs,
