Jennifer Berry Hawes

Caroline Ball, the baby, loved to paint and draw and dance ballet. She and her sister, Sarah, sang in the church choir. Theirs was, in so many ways, an ideal childhood.

In 2010, they lost the oldest of the four sisters to breast cancer. She was just 54.
And this year, they lost Caroline, the youngest daughter. They lost Caroline to herself, to the emptiness she had yet to fill.
