Can You Help?

I need help. I need advice. I need suggestions or anything you can come up with.

My heart is hurting. I am grieving. I am at a loss.

My fellow readers and certainly the heart community know that the world lost a beautiful smile coupled with a pair of the brightest eyes ever known to man 10 days ago. Travis Gary DiCarlo. He was Chase's heart buddy. His mom is my heart mom friend. I've never met either of them, but my heart is hurting nonetheless.

Obviously this is a devastating situation. But the hardest part for me is to know my dear heart mom friend is suffering like never before. She's feeling an unimaginable loss that cannot be put into words. And I'm on the other side of the country with no idea how to possibly provide comfort to her. It hurts like crazy that Travis is in heaven, but it also hurts to imagine the pain Nicole is feeling and to be powerless to support her through this tragedy.

Can you help? Help me help Nicole! I just want to be a good friend and I want her to know that her loss is our loss, and we love her and care for her and are lifting her up in prayer.

So besides the obvious (praying like crazy!), can you think of anything I can do to help her?
