When I attended the presidential inaugural celebration at Susan's house last January, I got the chance to finally meet in person a fellow Oklahoma blogger I had been following online.
Although I can't say Shana and I are close friends, I liked her immediately, and we even made time to have lunch together since then. She had recently given birth to her third child and has a great sense of humor about life with three little ones.
Best of all, she let me hold her beautiful baby boy Thalon, and smell his wonderful baby smell.
It breaks my heart to announce Thalon's passing. I don't know any of the details, just what Shana has put on her blog. I hope you'll go there, stranger or no, and let her know that her family is in your thoughts and prayers, as they are in mine.
