This week I learned of a tragic death of the wife of someone I had met at several conferences. 2 years ago, they were a happy family of four with their eldest daughter a senior in college. The daughter contracted an infection and ultimately passed away.
After much anguish, the wife realized that their loss could help others and she became a speaker and counselor for those in grief. One of the news articles has a link to a video that gives you an idea of the power of her message. Im Alive 2 Thrive: Full Length - YouTube
This week she was killed while sitting at a stop sign or light. A young driver decided to kill himself by driving into another car at a high rate of speed. He lived, she didn't.
While I wasn't a co worker or close friend, I had met the husband and talked with him to know he has a deep faith and an abiding love for agriculture and country. However, I think these losses would test anyone's faith.
