bad news this morning

I received word this morning that one of my classmates, Shyla, died last night in what was surely a terrible manner. Also killed in the accident were her husband and oldest daughter. Their 4 year old daughter is in ICU. The middle daughter was visiting Shyla's parents in Missouri. I have lots to say, but no time to do it right now.

Here is the local news report of the accident, which occurred in Louisiana.

That is horrible. We all need to learn to appreciate the time we have and the people we have in our lives, because all too quickly those things we hold closest can be ripped away from us.

I'm glad you chose to share that. It made me think ...
