Yesterday my heart stopped as I read the blog of a very dear friend. She lost her oldest son. Her name is Becky (I wrote about her give away only a few days ago). I met her years ago through eBay, and although we've never met face to face, I can tell you that I count her as a wonderful and loveing friend.
This news has left me so saddened. I can't let go of it. I just can't imagine the pain and anguish and suffering that must be going on in her home. It's something that I just can't wrap my mind around. He was a healthy, handsome very young man. He was a good son and happy, so full of life.
I wept when I read the news. I wept as I fell asleep, and even now, my heart continues to weep.
There's nothing I can do for her, nothing I can say. Even to say that I'm here for her is a big joke. How can anyone ever say or do anything that will make her feel the slightest bit better. Thankfully, she, her husband, and her younger son are a wonderful and tight family. And, with even greater thanks, she and her family knows our Lord, who truly is the only one who can walk with them through this valley.
I just don't have the words to express how I terrible I feel. Please hold her and her family up in prayer.
