prayers for the goff's...

Yesterday I said I would be posting about the rest of our weekend. However, life seems to change in a blink of an eye...wether we like it or not! Justin and I got a call last night. A call that I have received about a family member before, a call we have received about Justin's dad, a call that I have nightmares about. This time it wasn't one of our family members, but a family member of our very close friends. G and Taran are some of our very close friends. It is sometimes hard to meet 'couple' friends. G and Justin have worked together for some time. G, Taran and their son Trevin were at the lake this weekend with us....not knowing there lives would change drastically in only a couple of days! G's mom was killed last night. She simply got out of her car to check the mail and was his by a car. You can read here. I just cannot imagine what they are going through. Vickie was an amazing person. She was definitely the rock of their family. I know she loved her family, but more than anything, she loved her very first grandson, Trevin.
I cannot imagine losing my mother. I cannot imagine losing my parents. I cannot imagine losing Justin's parents..or my brothers, my SILs, my niece and nephew, a grandparent, a cousin, an aunt or uncle, a best friend. I CANNOT imagine losing my daughter. Crap...I cannot even THINK about losing my dog! Life is sometimes not fair. I know there is always a reason for things to happen, but if it is someone's time to go to heaven, I do not understand why they it has to be so dramatic. I have no details of Vickie's death. I do pray that she died instantly...that she had no pain.
Please, please say a pray for the Goff family. They need peace and comfort. I pray that God hears our prayers and wraps his arms around them. Please know if you have ever lost a family member and/or friend, I am praying for you today too. I remember the pain I seen in my husband's eyes the day he got the call about his dad. We were on vacation in Colorado. No matter the situation, it is always hard. I also remember the night I found out about my cousin. It has been 10 years. I remember it like it was yesterday. The pain never goes away. I think we just learn to cope with it. The Goff family has a very long road. Please continue to pray...

so sorry to read about the loss in this post. Grieving is such a hard thing to do! Losing someone is difficult, and accepting it can be so painful.

I am crying over here bc I either could not imagine loosing my mom. She is my best friend and I could not imagine that. They are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for their loss and I am at a loss for words.
