Prayers Please!!

I know that I haven’t posted in a very long time…but trust me when I say that I have been missing it so!! Even though, I still look at all of your blogs, almost daily. But today, I decided that I needed to come here and ask all of you for your thoughts and prayers.



My dear cousin, Kelly, lost her husband Friday night in a tragic car accident. He was hit head on and killed by an 18 YO drunk driver. And unfortunately, my cousin saw the entire accident. She was driving in her car only 3 cars behind him. She and her husband were coming home from his work Christmas party and they had taken two cars because she had come directly from work. Thankfully, she doesn’t remember much. She remembers seeing the car cross the center lane, hit Sean’s car and calling 911. After that, I am assuming shock set in.


Sean not only left behind his beloved wife but they have two beautiful boys, a 6 YO and a 3 YO. Unfortunately, my cousin is not a stranger to death, she lost her Father when she was only 15 YO. My Aunt had become a widow at the age of 38 and now her Daughter has become one at the age of 33. WAY too young!!!! And to make matters so much worse, Sean just went thru a major heart surgery for a heart defect he was born with this past year and came out of that with flying colors just to have his life taken away by a senseless drunk driver!!


So, during this Christmas season…please hug your loved ones a little tighter and please keep my cousin and her entire family in your thoughts and prayers!!

I came over from Nichole's blog. I am also so very sorry for your loss. We lost my step cousin to a horrific car accident in August. She was only 42 and left a husband and 2 children. I know saying I'm sorry doesn't help you, but know that strangers are praying for all of you! My heart goes out to your entire family.
