It's been a rough 3 weeks. As you may have read previously a young man at church was killed in an auto accident, leaving a young wife and 2 very young daughters.
Last night I got another phone call. My last boss, (at my church where I was the receptionist) his wife had gone to Mexico with 2 girlfriends for a getaway. She and her best friend were killed in a parasailing accident. the authorities had closed the harbor due to choppy water, and bad weather conditions. When the rope broke on the parachute, the boat captain, dropped the 3rd member of the party off at the dock and fled the scene of the crime.
This is the woman who gave me a baby shower when I was pregnant with my first baby! This is the woman, who when I couldn't find the baby quilt my grandmother had made for me when I was a teenager, she called her mother in Va. and had her quilt me a baby quilt. She knew how much that sort of legacy meant to me. I used to stay with her children when she and her husband had to travel for work. She talked me "off the ledge" when I had to leave my baby those first days back from maternity leave.
She will be missed! God, THIS SUUUUUUUUCCCKKKSSS!!!!
