Sad News

(Picture taken at Comerica Park in June 2010)

We received such sad news yesterday...my cousin has been found...she has passed away. She was terribly depressed from both losing her daughter in a house fire (Dec. 2009) and from post partum depression. She overdosed and was taken to a local hospital in Detroit (I won't share the hospitals name because I feel they made an awful mistake). The hospital had her identification and failed to call her parents. They released her to the morgue and a WEEK later the morgue got around to calling her parents! I'm just sick about it! She leaves behind her 2 beautiful boys, one is 3 and one is 5 months, her parents, a loving/best friend of a brother and her sister.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. It has meant so much to our family. Please continue to pray for them. Her brother is heartbroken and misses his best friend and his niece so very much.

You all are the best!

Hugs!
Kim

Oh, Kim, I am so sorry. I was hopeful she was taking a timeout to get her head together. No one can understand why these things happen. Our nephew took his own life when he was 31. He left a wife and 2 pre-teen kids. It was such a difficult time for them. I know it is a long healing process but a new normal will emerge and things will get better. All my prayers will be devoted to your family for a steady recovery. You are not alone. I know how you feel. Linda

That is sad news. The way the hospital acted after her death sounds very shady. A terrible situation all around.
