Remembering a friend...

These past couple days have been really weird. A friend of Lindsay and i died in a car accident. I cant help but think of what his family is going through. He had a beautiful wife and a 3 month old baby girl. It just really makes you think of how precious life is. I know that he's in a better place but my heart breaks for his family right now. I cant even imagine losing anyone like that. Lindsay and i got to hang out that day and we just talked about the fun times with him. It really puts things into perspective. When Max got home that day, i couldn't let him go. I just started crying and holding him. It teaches you to cherish EVERY moment and hold the ones you love a little tighter.
Shane was very loved and will be missed tremendously.

I still can't believe it. I have moments where I just want to break down. My heart and prayers go out to the Fig's. Their loss is incomprehensible. What a blessing it is to have the knowledge of eternal families!

Heidi, I was so happy to hear from you and discover you had a blog too. So sorry to hear the sad news. I often wonder why we are so sad when someone dies if the they are in a better place. I still miss my mom every day. Take care, and congrats on your marriage (I must be getting old). Love you! Katherine

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. That is really sad. I tagged you on my blog, although this doesn't seem like an appropriate place to tell you.
