Hug Your Loved Ones

This weekend we received some terrible family news.  My 17-year-old cousin was killed in a car accident.

Sadly, I didn’t know this cousin very well.  I’d already left home for college, and then we moved out of state for years.  I can’t imagine what my Aunt & Uncle, her older sister (who we used to babysit, so I have tons of memories of her), and my grandparents are going through.  As the youngest grandchild, she was very special to them.

So hug your family and friends today.  Remember that life is so fragile and precious. 

My sweet young cousin is singing with the angels.
