How sweet is this picture of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her daughter Caroline, taken back in '60 at their Georgetown home in DC.

Did you know Jacqueline gave birth to a third premature baby named Patrick who died two days later of respiratory distress syndrome?  She also gave birth to a still born daughter, named Arabella (her first child)  I now quietly understand her sometimes withdrawn attitude and extremely reserved persona.  Who woulnd't like to retrieve into their own skin after experiencing these tragic deaths.

  1. That is such a fabulous picture. Loss of a child would be so tragic, at any age. Our neighbors are facing the loss of their 23-year-old son from leukemia. I can't imagine their pain. I hope never to face it myself, or you with your beautiful Emilu.
