A week ago two very beautiful friends went to Heaven much earlier than we all expected. A friend from college, Wendy (33), and her sweet 8 year old daughter, Shelby, died in a car crash in Tillamook, Oregon. It is one of the worst tragedies you can imagine. I hurt for Wendy’s husband and 5 year old son who were left behind. I can’t imagine living on after losing half of my family, but am so glad they know the God of all Comfort.
We were blessed to attend the funeral yesterday. It was a beautiful memorial honoring two very beautiful young people. God was glorified through the service just as He was through their lives. I will continue to pray for the husband and son that were left behind. They were so strong at the service and they have a wonderful support system around them, but we know there will be many dark days ahead. It is hard to say goodbye to those you love most.
