It’s Matilda Mae’s anniversary 3

How I wish I meant her birthday, or something sweet. Sadly two years ago today Matilda Mae passed away. She went to her bed and just didn’t wake up. For no reason at all she was just gone. The Angels took her. Matilda Mae was dead. Jennie (@Edspire) tweeted her daughter was dead. Every piece of me wanted the tweet I read to be wrong. Perhaps some sick sod has hacked Jennie’s twitter?  Maybe it’s some kind of dare to post something shocking?  Maybe I imagined reading it (I checked, it was still there). What if…. I was running out of excuses for why it was not true. It was true, Matilda Mae was gone. I felt so bad for Jennie and her family. She had reached out to the Internet at an awful time,  and I hope that the reaction helped somehow.
