Before S was born, I was a preschool teacher. Last Friday, I found out that one of the girls I used to work with, Sarena, lost her son Eugene very suddenly and unexpectedly.
I am so sad for Sarena and her family, and they haven't left my thoughts since I found out. As a Mum to two young children, Eugene's passing struck a particular chord, as I'm sure it would for any parent. I also knew Eugene until he was a year old, because he was a student at the center where I worked. He was a gorgeous little boy and he will be greatly missed.
Sarena is a hard-working single mom to both Eugene and a nine-year-old daughter. She would like to bury her little boy next to his father, who also passed away three years ago. If anyone would like to make a donation, please visit their fund raising page here. Even if you can't give money, I'm sure they would appreciate thoughts and prayers as they try to come to terms with this horrific tragedy.
