The brother of one of my friends was assaulted last night and passed away this morning. It was a random and senseless act of violence. Although I only met him once, I know he was a good and kind man. And he will be missed greatly by his friends and family. My thoughts and prayers go out to them. I've learned through my own horrible loss of my newborn twin sons that asking why is never gives us the answers we crave. But the lesson learned is to hold tight to those that you do have. Hold them, love them, pray for them and be grateful for them. This horrific event keeps me mindful of that.
Tell the people that you love them. And that you are grateful for them. And pray for those who are in pain tonight.
Rest in peace Jeff. You are with the angels now. Hug my boys and tell them that momma will be there before they know it. Our lives are but a blink of the eye.
