A tragic loss

This past Sunday I learned that the daughter of my cousin lost her life in a car accident. She was 28 years old, a wife and mother of an 11 month old little girl. I hadn't seen her in years but the tragedy of her death is still heartbreaking. I think of my own 27 year old daughter and don't know how I would be able to cope with such a sudden and tragic loss.

Today was the wake and there were hundreds of people there to honor her memory and support her friends and family. The obituary in the paper was one of the most tender, loving obituaries I have ever read.

My heart is so heavy for her family right now. I just feel so sad!

take care,

Oh Dawn, that is truly heart-breaking! I know what you mean, it's simply impossible to imagine what it would be like to lose a child. And it's always so hard to hear of a mom with young children dying.
My thoughts are with all of your family.
