I have spent the last five days thinking about loss. How do we handle it and how do we help someone going through it.

We have a friend who has lost their 25 year old son to a tragic accident. This was an incredible young man who had such a wonderful life ahead of him, he was one of those people you meet and would instantly like. He was such a happy person. I just can not say enough about him.

Why do things like this happen to such promising young people. It was one of those things that happen, no one was doing anything wrong or making bad choices but just loving life and being part of it. I have not spoken to his family yet and I just do not know what I can say, words just do not come. The sadness is just so deep.

Enjoy every moment you have with your family and friends. LIFE IS TOO SHORT


  1. How very sad. And one of life's big questions. I'm so sorry for his parents' loss and your loss as well.

  2. Ugh, why indeed. I'm sorry to hear about his loss. 25 years is far too short a time.

    I'll be saying a prayer for all of you.

  3. Oh Connie, I am so sorry. My heart goes out to you and his family family. I wish I could say I didn't know how you feel but I do understand all to well. My love to you!
