An Unexpected Tragedy...

Last night I received a horrible phone call that Brittany was killed in a car accident...  Brittany always had a very cheerful attitude and a smile on her face. She was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, and teacher. She impacted so many lives in the most positive ways, and was a strong Christian woman. Brittany also had a beautiful baby boy who was in the car with her... he passed away later that night. Shep (her son) was the most precious thing ever! He always had a cute little smirk on his face and was constantly giggling. My heart aches so badly for the whole family. I've grown close to them and know how wonderful they are... and the fact they have to go through this breaks my heart. There's nothing anyone can do or say to ease the pain they are feeling. Only God has the ability to comfort them during this tough time. So please pray. Pray for the whole family, they were very close. Pray for all of the people affected by this horrible incident. And please... pray for her husband who lost his wife and only child. The Lord works in mysterious ways, and we will never be able to understand those ways. I know for certain that Brittany is in Heaven holding her baby boy.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

"There will be a day with no more tears
No more pain, and no more fears
There will be a day when the burdens of this place
Will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face" -Jeremy Camp

Brittany and baby Shep are there. And though it's hard, we should rejoice.
