This week the 30 year old sister of my son's girlfriend was killed in terrible car crash. The funeral was yesterday and there was not an empty seat or a dry eye in the entire church. There was no visitation because the crash was so bad, both occupants of the car were killed instantly, and the police weren't positive what exactly caused the accident, but there was no alcohol involved and they weren't speeding......possibly a patch of black ice. It's hard to understand why two young lives are snuffed out like that; I lost my first son without warning in 1983. We had no clue there was anything wrong during my pregnancy(full term) but he only lived eight hours and I never had a chance to hold him. At least now I can relate to parents who have lost children and give them a little comfort.
