Isabella and Craig White could not have known, some 15+ years ago, that I would marry Craig’s cousin Nick.
They could not have known that my daughter, who was only about 14 at the time, would later in life develop cancer and be hospitalized in London, England!
It was impossible for them to know when they bought their lovely home, in Barnes, that it would be located just 2.8 miles from the very London hospital where Arielle would receive her cancer treatments.
What they probably didn’t realize, when they ever so graciously offered me a bedroom in their home as my “base camp,” was how much easier it would make my life; how much time and money it would save me, and how much peace of mind I would gain knowing I was less than 3 miles away from my daughter.
I don’t believe in coincidences.
I do believe people are put in our lives for a reason… this young, beautiful, caring, generous family (who I have come to know and love over the past few years) will never know how much their generous offer and hospitality as touched my heart. I am forever grateful.
