Life is Tenuous

For the first time, I hesitate in using my blog to share information because this isn't necessarily my news to share, and so I will be careful in what I say so as to protect those who have been most affected.

My family experienced a most unexpected and senseless death yesterday morning. Not in my immediate family but still very, very close. This individual was so alive, and had his roots so deeply entrenched in life that it shook our whole family to the core that he could pass so easily.

My heart is wrenched for those closest to him. We're all in shock and will be for a long time probably. My consolation is the Savior's Plan of Salvation and knowledge of each of our roles within that.

I am so so sorry.

Aislinn said...

Amy - I'm sorry about your loss and that of your family. Thank goodness for the plan of salvation and for the sweet blessings that it affords us. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Christy said...

Thinking of you. Loss is always a difficult thing. It makes a difference knowing that there is a plan, however. Sorry for your loss.

Lady Rose said...

You and your family are in my hearts and prayers.

Katie said...

so very sorry-

Jessica said...

So sorry... Our prayers are with you, friend.

We have also been touched by death this week at school. I have had tenderness over a young woman that lost her life at only 14 years old to a senseless mistake. Life is oh so short and tragic at times...

Amy, hey if there is anything I can do please let my know. I totally understand how it feels to lose someone that wasn't in the fam, but just as close as a fam member. Good luck this weekend and please call if you need a single thing. Love Ya
