Nothing's Well on the Eastern Front Update

Now that El Guapo has sent out his e-mail to law school friends, I feel OK sharing this with those who read our blog. Here is an excerpt from the e-mail that gives you the general idea:

My daughter, [name], died yesterday afternoon. She was 13 days old. Some of you have heard this by now and some haven't. This has nothing to do with how much we love you but more to do with the fact that the last 24 hours have been a blur and we just can't reach you all. Our families are here and our church has helped us so much.

I'm not sure what to say. El Guapo, you and your family are in our thoughts. I'm glad that you guys are surrounded by friends and family to help you through this. I look forward to the day when you'll be back, but don't make it too soon. Take care of your wife and yourself.

Wow. Sometimes real life puts law school in perspective.

I am so very sorry.

There is little worse in this world than losing a child.

Know that annonymous people in the world have read this, have closed their eyes, and said a prayer for the annonymous parents and the little one today.

I am so very sorry for your loss.
