Today's article for Sarah Ewing

Here is today's article:

5-year-old dies from injuries to her head

Stepmom mum on how it happened

By Sara Eaton
The Journal Gazette

A 5-year-old girl hospitalized in critical condition Friday for a head injury has since died, and her death remains under investigation.

Sarah Ewing was not breathing when paramedics arrived at her home, 3905 St. Joe Center Road, about 8:40 p.m. Friday. Paramedics called police to the scene, explaining that Sarah was in critical condition from what they believed was a battery, according to dispatch records.

She remained hospitalized in critical condition through Tuesday, but died late Tuesday or early Wednesday, family members said.

Allen County Coroner Dr. E. Jon Brandenberger said Sarah’s case remains under investigation. Results of an autopsy could be released today, providing details into the cause and manner of Sarah’s death.

Meanwhile, Fort Wayne police have turned over their investigation to prosecutors, officer and department spokesman Michael Joyner said.

Joyner said Sarah had been with her stepmother, Shanna L. Pritchard, at the time the she was injured but declined to specify how Sarah was hurt. Joyner also declined to release additional information.

Police previously said they were interviewing family members to determine what happened.

Pritchard, 29, declined to comment late Wednesday about Sarah’s injuries, how she sustained them and whether she had any involvement. Pritchard described Sarah as an energetic, happy little girl who loved to play with her younger brother, Skyler Pritchard, 2.

She described her relationship with Sarah as good and said the pair used to do the grocery shopping for the family together. Sarah enjoyed singing, coloring and playing at cleaning around the house, Pritchard said, pointing to a plastic toy vacuum lined up among other toys.

Toys lined two walls of the sparsely decorated duplex and were meticulously organized. Magnetic letters formed the alphabet in perfect order on a small magnetic board. The letters were lined up in straight lines with equal spacing between each letter.

Pritchard said Sarah liked to take bubble baths and would pretend she was in a hot tub.

Sarah shared a bedroom with Skyler. Her bed was in one corner and Skyler’s was in the other with a dresser separating the two. At the head of Sarah’s bed, Pritchard placed several drawings by Sarah and a prayer she wrote for her. A tent sat in a third corner of their room.

If Sarah’s death is ruled a homicide, it will be the eighth in Allen County this year.

She is the second child to die this month. Ten-month-old David Turnage II was found unconscious April 9 inside a Bridgeway Drive apartment.

He died four days later. His father, who was home with him at the time, said he left the baby unattended in the bathtub. Police have said they believe David’s death was an accident.

May God Rest Her Soul

I just wanted to "light a candle" for a 5 year old girl who passed away this morning in Indiana. Her name was Sarah and she was a friend of my daughter's Step-mother.

This is an article from the Fort Wayne local paper earlier in the week:

Girl, 5, critically hurt in northeast-side home
Masaaki Harada The Journal Gazette
Fort Wayne police are investigating how a 5-year-old girl was critically injured in a St. Joe Center Road home Friday night. An ambulance was called to 3905 St. Joe Center Road on the city's northeast side about 8:40 p.m. Police were called after paramedics found the 5-year-old girl wasn't breathing, police spokesman Roy Sutphin said.
The girl appeared to have head injuries and was taken to a hospital in critical condition, Sutphin said. Detectives were interviewing family members at the hospital to determine what happened. Sutphin declined to say whether foul play is suspected. No one was arrested Friday night. The home, part of a duplex near North Brookwood Drive, was surrounded by yellow crime-scene tape while officers outside waited for family members to give consent to search the home. Three people, including an infant boy, left the duplex to go to the hospital to be with the girl. This is the second time this month police have been called because of a critically injured child.

Never Lie to your Mother!

Brian Smith invited his mother over for dinner.

During the course of the meal, Brian's mother couldn't help but keep
noticing how beautiful Brian's roommate, Stephanie, was.

Mrs. Smith had long been suspicious of a relationship between Brian and
Stephanie, and this had only made her more curious. Over the course of
the evening, while watching the two react, Mrs.
Smith started to wonder if there was more between Brian and Stephanie
than met the eye.

Reading his mom's thoughts, Brian volunteered, "I know what you must be
thinking, but I assure you Stephanie and I are just roommates."

About a week later, Stephanie came to Brian saying, "Ever since your
mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver
gravy ladle.

You don't suppose she took it, do you?" Brian said, "Well, I doubt it,
but I'll send her an e-mail jut to be sure." So he sat down and wrote:

Dear Mother:

I'm not saying that you "did" take the gravy ladle from the house. I'm
not saying that you "did not" take the gravy ladle. But the fact remains
that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

Love, Brian Several days later, Brian received a letter from his mother
that read:

Dear Son:

I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Stephanie, and I'm not saying
that you "do not" sleep with Stephanie; but the fact remains that if she
was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now.

For my baby girl!

Just for this morning, I am going to smile when I see your face and laugh when I feel like crying.

Just for this morning, I will let you choose what you want to wear, and smile and say how perfect it is.

Just for this morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.

Just for this afternoon, I will unplug the telephone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles..

Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck, and I will buy you one if he comes by.

Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decision I have made where you are concerned.
Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them. Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal so you can have both toys..
Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.

Just! for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and n ot get angry.

Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.

Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.

Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply be grateful that God has given me the greatest gift ever given.

I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.

And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank God for you, and ask him for nothing, except one more day..............

Can you believe this?

The Bible says that Jesus walked on water, but a professor of oceanography at Florida State University in Tallahassee says Christ was actually walking on a floating piece of ice.

The sixth chapter of the Gospel of John tells the story familiar to Christians: When evening came, his disciples went down to the sea, got into a boat and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were terrified. But he said to them: "It is I, do not be afraid." (John 6:16-20)

I am a firm believer in the Bible.....Every WORD!!!!! I am appalled that people are trying to "EXPLAIN" the things that are "UNBELIEVABLE" because they have no faith and choose NOT to believe.
