    With the heaviest of heart, tremendous sadness, and with the family's permission I share that beautiful, clever & talented 13 year old Eilish, daughter of Mel* and Charlie, and sister of Ella, passed away today. Mel and Charlie have always been conscientious and proactive parents. They absolutely did a wonderful job attending to the diabetes care of Eilish, all precautions were taken, due diligence and protocol followed, pump checked, blood glucose checked all in the most timely manner. Type 1 diabetes took Eilish from the world today.

    Although we may have questions that really cannot be answered, now is the time to extend our heartfelt prayers and loving support to Mel, Charlie and Ella.

    That is truly the problem with this effing disease -- you can do all the right things, as I know Mel did, and still lose. :( Despite constant vigilance, this can happen. :( We need a cure. Now. :mad:

    For Mel, Charlie, and Ella - I'm so sorry. Tears aren't enough to express the sadness that is being felt. you might be going through the motions in your mind asking yourself "how" but please know......that you did nothing wrong. Nothing. Dear God. :(
