People die everyday, every second, it is how we die that makes an impact.  I have just been given unimaginable news by my sister, her husband’s niece is in the fight of her life.  She was in a fatal car accident, her friend did not survive the crash.  My sincere wishes to my brother-in-law’s family, his sister, and the family that lost their daughter.  There is a mother scared to death, facing the most unfathomable outcome and another has.  The fathers as well.

It is surreal that this has taken place.  I met this young lady twice, my last time seeing her was when I went to Elizabeth City in ’07 to visit my sister, my brother- in- law’s family was there visiting as well.

We also had a close call, unbeknownst to us, My cousin in Spain was on deaths door from a cold that progressed quickly, being life threatening (while he took a couple of days up North with friends and his wife in Madrid) having no immune system.  He is a tremendously active, healthy man, who got a freakish bacteria.  He had cold symptoms before he left for Madrid, and it spiraled.  I’m so thankful he is fine and well.
