A Kiss From A Rose...


This was the title that I already had in mind for my post, but unfortunately it now also has a second meaning. As my friend and I were strolling through her lovely garden yesterday, we heard sirens, many sirens. After picking up my kids from school and checking the news online I read that a 12-year old boy accidentally hanged himself on a zip-line in his back yard. His mother found him. 

If that wasn't bad enough, I later found out that this little boy was actually the oldest son of my orthodontist whom I had seen just 24 hours prior to the accident. Their last name is Roos which means Rose in Dutch. So so sad...
