The Value of Life

It is with a heavy heart that I post today to let you know that a dear friend of my husband lost his son just two days ago. While I can't imagine the pain of losing a child, there is the added pain of having numerous articles about it, it is heavily talked about right now as they are doing an autopsy and trying to figure out the reason.

We are going to the wake tonight and I am not sure how to look at our friends and express my sorrow with them for their loss. Please keep their family in your prayers. This has truly been an eye-opening experience for my husband as well as he looks at our 5 boys and realizes how precious the value of life truly is and what it would mean to lose one child is just devastating.

Here is one of the articles recently published on the incident: Article.

May we never take a day for granted and forget to tell our loved ones what they mean to us.

My husband's brother and wife lost their three-year-old daughter by accidentally backing up on her. A devastating time. Horrible. There is nothing more dark and sad than when someone loses a child.

It has been 10 years since that horrible day. It was so vivid it feels like yesterday. They do smile, laugh, and have good times. She is never forgotten, but they focus on her life rather than the day she died.

I will pray for them. I am so sorry that anyone has to go through such heartache.
