Looking Back

No sinner Saturday today. In light of the sad news I received this morning I couldn’t post something so trivial.

A friend was killed in a motorcycle accident last night. I was getting ready to leave work and thought I would check Facebook. I saw a note stating prayers to the family of…

Immediately I knew it couldn’t be good. My thoughts raced to a parent that had a heart attack or the worst, had passed. I never once thought one of the kids (my age) had passed.

Jon was my bestie when I was little. We grew up a block away from one another. We went to school together. As adults we grew apart but kept in contact through Facebook.

I remember playing house, hunting for bugs, exploring the neighborhood together. We played almost everyday together.

It is hard to comprehend why this had to happen. It’s hard to see the “lesson” in his death, the purpose or meaning. I am always at a loss in rhinestone like this. But it’s worse now that I have experienced tragedy first hand.

It’s so difficult to wrap my brain around the suffering his family is going through. Difficult because stupid accidents shouldn’t happen. I don’t understand why these things must happen.

I will come to terms and move on. The hole left in his family’s heart will remain forever empty. My thoughts, prayers, love and support are with them.

Rest in Peace my friend, may you remain forever young.
