A Tragic Loss

My husband lost his Aunt Evelyn to a tragic car accident this past Friday. We don't know yet if there was some physical cause for the accident such as a heart attack or stroke, but she pulled out in front of a truck with a woman and three children. The mom is in the hospital at Vanderbilt. Please pray for her. I believe the children made it out ok. Pray for the family. Evelyn had several children and grandchildren as well as extended family who are all grieving tonight. She was a wonderful woman. She had spent the last several years taking care of an invalid husband who succumbed to his illness a year or so ago. She was 78. She was one of CWG, Sr.'s 9 sisters, 7 of whom survive. CWG, Sr. also had a brother who died in WWII, so it is a very large family. And even though this does not make the loss easier, there are at least many to share the burden. We will be attending visitation tomorrow night and the funeral Tuesday, so I may not post. Be in prayer for all involved. Pray that I may have some words of comfort for them or at least comfort them with our presence. I know I can count on all of you. Thanks in advance. Hug those you love tonight and tell them. Life is short.

I am so sorry for your loss Cindy (and family). Yes, you can count on us--we are praying for you. And thanks for the reminder...yes, life is over in less than a nano-second; we should always keep that in mind and live abundantly.
