One of the saddest stories Iíve ever read!

One of the saddest stories Iíve ever read:

From Sky News

A 13-day-old baby girl has been left orphaned after her parents died in an horrific car crash on their way home from visiting her in hospital.

Lucy Schollbach was born 12 weeks premature, weighing just two-and-a-half pounds.

Her parents Justin Schollbach, 42, and Leah James, 33, died instantly when their car veered off the road and hit a street lamp, Sydney's Sunday Telegraph has reported.

They were just a few minutes away from their home in the Sydney suburb of Kurnell after the hour-long trip to visit Lucy.

Mr Schollbach and Ms James made the trip twice a day to see their daughter, who spends most of her time in an incubator at Sydney's Royal Hospital For Women.

It was during one of these visits that Andrew Loxton, the father of Ms James' nine-year-old son Stephen, filmed the couple cuddling Lucy.

Mr Loxton said Ms James was a loving and devoted mother.

"Leah was always smiling like a Cheshire cat, so happy to be visiting her little baby girl," he told the Sunday Telegraph.

"I'd just like to see that smile again."

Mr Schollbach's father, Rob, said: "Having Lucy changed Justin.

"It's the happiest I have seen him in his whole life and now this has happened."

Doctors say Lucy is expected to stay in hospital until November.

She is in the care of Sydney social services until it is decided who will raise her.

Her parents' funerals will be held next week.

As Gordon Astley who used to host a chat programme on local radio used to say on hearing of a death, 'another one safely gathered in.'

One journey of a spirit into physical life ended. The lesson learned. The time here was short, and for many the pain is great, yet there will also be many in spirit who will welcome back those whose time on earth is over. May all involved feel spirit's love at such a difficult time.
