Jessica's favorite post came from Dearest Progeny with the post "What Counts When Your Child Lays Dying!" Saying, "This post comes at the right time because I lost my mother and grandmother on January 3rd. It made me and the rest of the family realize the importance of relationships we have now. It also made me realize what kind of legacy I could leave behind when my time comes. Thanks for sharing!" [caption id="attachment_5025" align="aligncenter" width="300"]
