Sharing In Her Sorrow

I missed a call late Friday night while out eating dinner with my girlfriends. It was a call from a dear friend at work. I checked my voicemail and received a message that knocked the wind out of me. I didn't even get a chance to hear the entire message before the tears started to fall. The message left was that my friend has just got a call informing her that her son and daughter-in-law had just been killed in a car accident. I stumbled out of the restaurant to call my friend and could hardly speak when she answered. Her son Michael and his wife, Merin, had died in a head on collision. The news is still surreal to me. Michael and Merin became proud parents just a mere 7 weeks ago and my friend, a proud grandma. My heart is heavy and it aches even as I write this. Their families are in my thoughts and prayers. A trust fund has been started for their baby girl, Ysa. To find more details about the trust fund, please visit here.
