Heartbroken.....

One of my husband's coworkers and 
dearest friends was killed in a motorcycle
accident last evening.
Warren had hired him
about five years ago.
They spent so much time together
at the lunch table, in meetings
or just working on projects together.

I'll not name him as the police
haven't yet.

Mikey was also very close to 
this man and looked up to him
so.much.
He was such an encourager 
of Mikey's dirtbike rides.
They loved to ride the coal piles
together.

We are just heartbroken.

Please pray for Warren, Michael and 
this man's family.

It is such a shock.

The reality of death 
Its hitting Mikey hard.
He'll miss this friend.
As will Warren.

He was a believer.
Praise God.

As you can imagine
it is taking heroic strength on my
part not to take this opportunity to 
drive home the fact that he was riding a
motorcycle and how dangerous they are.
You know how I fear having Michael on 
a street bike.
But God is helping me.

The link to the newspaper story
is here.

Hugs.
Hold tight to the ones you love
you never know.......
You just never know.

So sorry to hear this. Earlier this week, a childhood friend of mine lost his 20yo son the same way. I'll be praying.
