I just received word that my cousin Tracie lost her 14-year-old son today in a motorcycle accident. I haven't seen Tracie for years. We drifted apart as we grew older and our lifestyles really didn't have much in common.
But what we did have in common was our deep love for our children. Tracie tried for years to have a baby before Tanner came along. He was her world. I can't even imagine the depth of her grief. Please pray for her and her family. Pray that God will give me words to speak and write to her. As far as I know, she does not share my faith, though we've had many discussions about it especially when we were younger. My heart is just breaking for her right now.
