I don't really know where to begin. There is so much to say, but my thoughts are a jumbled mess. My dad called last night to tell me, my cousin, Me- was killed in a car accident yesterday afternoon.
The devastating thing is her family has already dealt with death too many times before. This just heaps burning coals on an already gaping wound.
Her mother, my first-cousin, has planned too many funerals. At just 11 years of age her youngest son died inexplicably. He was running around the gym one minute and was gone the next.
And just 60 days ago her husband died. Again, unexpectedly.
M- leaves behind a husband and two young daughters who were in the car with her and were life flighted to area hospitals. As of this afternoon the four year old is doing pretty well, the one year old is stable, but has some pretty serious injuries.
Please pray for C- and her only remaining child Mi- and Me's husband. We have an incredibly closely knit extended family, who will gather around them and support them, but what they really need right now is to feel the comfort of their Heavenly Father.
