Another day, gone. They do go by so fast!
We just learned of the passing of a friend's son....19 years old, to a tradgic accident. He fought the good fight for a good week before his family decided to let him go!
I can't, even for a moment, pretend to know what it's like to lose a child after 19 years. I can't, for even a moment, pretend to know what his mom is going through. And I can't, for even a moment, pretend to know how much his family will miss him.
But I do, for a lifetime, know the pain of losing someone close. And I do, for a lifetime, see the pain in my mom's eyes when we talk about my brother, even the good times. And I will, for a lifetime, always cherish the ones I have in my life now, and remember with great memories the ones who have gone before me.
So for tonight, I will love a little deeper, I will breathe in the scent of my children, feel their love, and I will hold them a little longer, and savor each and every moment. And tonight, in our prayer chain, I will include Casey, that God may wrap his loving arms around him to bring him home. And I will pray for all those that know and love him most, that they may find solace for their grief, in good times, great memories, and all the love in the world!
