Well, tomorrow it will officially be 1 month since Shamae passed away. For all of those who have been following her blog, I want to thank you all for the support and friendship that you have shown her and our family over the years. I am not even close to the writer that Shamae was, but I do plan to continue to keep her blog going and try and post at least once a month or so.

She was a big supporter of the type 1 community and a great resource. Although I feel I do a good job taking care of Sydney, I don't know that I will be able to fill the shoes that she left in that area. If you have things that you think would be good to link or post please let me know. I still want people to be able to come and feel connected.

Thanks again for all of the love and support that you have shown us this last month.

So glad you are doing this... Your wife was such a huge support to me and so many others. Thank you for keeping her spirit alive in the DOC.

Shamae was responsible for bringing a lot of us together and was always a source of encouragement. If you need anything, please let us know. I know there is a group for D-dads on Facebook. Are you a part of that? They might be a good connection for you.

Love to you and the girls!

How heartbreaking. I am shocked and sitting here crying for you all. I have enjoyed reading Shamae's observations as a fellow T1 Mom. My heart goes out to you and your family will surely be in my prayers. God strengthen you as you deal with everything.

I am so glad to hear that you are going to continue to chronicle your diabetes journey. You both have done such a fantastic job taking care of Sydney. I miss Shamae and think of her often. Take care of yourselves.

Shamae stole a little piece of my heart, and my blogging journey will never be the same without her.

Prayers to you and your family.
