my heart hurts for my friend summer.

i believe in the power of prayer. i do with all my heart.

i know God hears. i know he listens to each heart who calls out to him...

and i'm sorry if this isn't what you believe because i'm not here to preach at all, honest.

but it's what i believe.

and so i'm asking you to please say a prayer (or a thousand) or send your good thoughts/vibes/kindness for my dear friend Summer. Her father, Daddy Butch lost his fight with cancer this morning and my heart hurts for her. I can't even imagine...  i take comfort that she knows he's finally at peace and went to heaven surrounded by those who love him.



our dearest friend Claire is meeting her for the first time today, and it's so sad it's under such heart-breaking circumstances. Claire was in New Orleans for an event and since Summer was home in Louisiana to be by his side the past few days, claire's driving to be there for her. I wish i could be as well.

i love you girls!!! xo

I am writing from Summer's mama's guest room--you are so sweet to post this and to ask for prayers for their family. Summer is keeping her chin up--she is surrounded by her family and her husband and is being kept busy with all the arrangements. She is sad but she is going to be okay--I can just tell.

Dearest Micaela,

I've been too emotional about Daddy Butch and Summer to comment here. I lost my Daddy ten years ago and when Summer put out the call for letters to Daddy Butch, I felt like I was sending a little something out to my own Daddy. It made me happy. I worry about Summer, how she will be. She is a lovely person and Daddy Butch was sent to me (I believe) in a small way. He was sent to all of us.

love love,
Kitty

p.s. Bono Baby and I want to thank you over and over. You have no idea how much you kindness means to us. Keep an eye on your mailbox.
xoxo
