Abby, Mimi, Alex
My heart is shattered. My gorgeous granddaughter, Abby, was fatally injured in an automobile accident early last evening in OK. It still feels like Friday night and yet it's early Saturday morning and our lives are forever changed. One of her friends also died and one is in critical condition in the hospital. His parents were driving in front of the kid's vehicle...an 18 wheeler lost wheels and they hit the kids. The photo is one I love ~ taken at Christmas with her and her amazing brother. I posted about "time" yesterday and little did I know how fitting that quote would be. Abby was beautiful, brilliant, funny, loving, strong willed, independent and always up for an adventure. She would have celebrated her 16th birthday July 8th and was preparing her Mom's car to take it over when she received her driver's license. Alex is as handsome as Abby was beautiful and he too is extremely brilliant and so very talented. He's such a sweetheart and owns a piece of my heart. I don't know the "why" ~ none of us do. I damned sure don't understand it. I know God has the master plan but it's so difficult as humans to try and figure out why so many bad people are left and these lives were cut so short. Please remember Alex, my son & d-i-l, her sister Angela and my daughter & s-i-l in your prayers. My family is devastated and we're all going to have a huge adjustment. Dance with the angels, sweet girl! You are so very loved ~
I haven't had a moment to blog due to packing and organizing for my move the 28th. Now it's going to be a real challenge to get all this done. My sincere apologies for not being around to visit. I'm not even sure when I will now.
