Remembered by Cindy McLeish:
The mother of Hannah is my best friend. Her name is Lori. We went through our 1995-1996 pregnancies together. We were due 5 weeks apart, her first. When her labor began she called me with questions. It was 6:30 in the morning and the first thing she said was, "Cindy? I have questions." Her voice sounded shaky and the news that followed wasn't good. Her water had broken and was brownish. She and her husband decided to come to our house for a check with my feto-scope. There was no heart beat. We transferred to the Hospital, just 3 minutes away, and there they confirmed what I had suspected. Her baby had died. I stayed with her and her husband through the 3 hour labor. I am thankful to God that it was only that long. It was the saddest day of my whole life. I never new there could be such pain. To watch my friend go through labor, knowing the outcome was almost unbearable. But by the grace of God she made it and delivered a beautiful baby girl with seemingly no physical problems. The Lord had simply called her home. I'll never forget that day and all the emotions that went with it. I am so thankful that He placed me in Lori's life for such a time as that. It only made us closer as friends. We have a bond that no man could ever break. I love her as my sister in Christ and will weep when she weeps, and remind her of the days to come which will be filled with joy and no tears. I miss Hannah. I never knew I could miss someone I never held, but I do. I cry for her often. I am anticipating the day that our Lord returns and we can be reunited with those that have gone before us. Without that hope, that truth, I do not know how anyone can cope. As we approach the 2nd anniversary of Hannah's birth, I remember the pain on my friends face. I look forward to seeing our God wipe every tear from her eye and open the gates for her to be with Hannah again. It will come in time.
