    Default Jonathan Pitre has passed away

    I don't know if any of you have heard the story about Jonathan Pitre. He was a Canadian boy who suffered from epidermolysis bullosa (EB). His story can be read here. What an amazing young man. May he now rest in peace.

    Sometimes we need our eyes opened to see what blessings we truly have. I can't even begin to imagine the weight of her loss.

    I have never heard of that condition. I read what I could before I got a security notice about the questionability of the security of that web site, so I clicked off. What an amazing young man. May he rest in peace, & God comfort his mother.

    Oh Monique. That is so sad for his mom and family. He did suffer way too much from this disease at such a young age. May he rest in peace. His struggle and pain are over. He was an inspiration of syrenpgth for many.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
