Sadness!

I got a phone call very early this morning and found out a very good friend of mine lost her youngest son. He was killed in a car accident last night. My heart is crying and aching for her and her family. A mother or fathers worst nightmare is losing one of their children.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle of some kind.

I think the greatest fear of every parent is the lost of a child. It perhaps is the one thing in life we all fear the most.

No mother should have to suffer the loss of a child, but so many do.

What a terrible pain.

Gail our hearts and prayers go out to you, we went through that twice in our family when my youngest son's girlfriend and parents were killed when he was 16, and then not even a year later his best friend and our neighbors 17 year old son was killed in another crash. Life just doesn't prepare one to lose a child.We place our faith in God and hope he will watch over and protect the children.I give mine a hug each time we part company and a quiet I Love You. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
