Sad News

I learned early yesterday morning that the daughter of a friend had been murdered.   There are no words that come near to offer any kind of solice to a parent who looses a child.  Michelle (mom) lives in New Jersey and Britt was living in Texas so details are few and far between.  It matters not the circumstances when a young life is gone too soon.   In my minds eye I can see her running through the yard as a child with the white-blond tiny little pony tails and her blue blue eyes.  Michelle is on her way by car to Texas - couldn't get a flight fast enough and she just couldn't sit by and wait until she did.    This is a trip no parent should have to make.  None of us holds the magic ticket for unending tomorrows so hug your loved ones while you still have them.   My thoughts and prayers are for all her family during this heart-wrenching time.
