My parents called a little while ago with some terrible news. An old friend of my brother’s was in a car accident today with his wife and their baby (who’s only a month or two old). The friend is in bad shape, but expected to live. His wife is dead — from where she was sitting, and from trying to protect the baby, she wasn’t well protected herself. The baby is fine. As is the woman who hit them (and who, I suspect, is facing some pretty major charges).

My brother’s friend and his wife were together since high school — like half their lives. They had just become a family.

I can’t even begin to fathom how horrific this is for that family, and my heart goes out to them. Yet at the same time, I can’t help but think, with the nie-phew due in two weeks, that this is the last thing I want stuck in my brother and his girlfriend’s heads and hearts right now… 🙁

  1. Or yours, or anyone else’s for that matter. That’s awful — I’m sorry to hear about it.

    Situations like this are hard to hear about for anyone. It’s just not possible to imagine how the people involved must feel.

    Hope your brother’s friend pulls through.
