Life is precious...

It's been a very sad few days in our small community.

It's really hard to make any sense out of how 1 family can endure so much pain and sorrow.

A classmate/friend of my oldest son who is a senior in HS, has lost his older brother in a car accident on Friday. This young man was only 21 yrs old.... a very kind-hearted, spirited young man that had always put family first.

For the past year, he had been caring for his 50 yr old mother who just lost HER battle to cancer yesterday afternoon.

Yesterday afternoon was the funeral of this wonderful young man...he was holding the family together...

My heart aches for this family...for the 2 brothers (18 yrs old & 24(?) yrs old).

Life is precious....................make every moment a good one with your husband and your children...hug them, tell them you love them and by all means show them!
