At a loss for words...

I received horrible news yesterday at work. One of my graduate students passed away in a car accident. She was 6 months pregnant. A coworker told me this news before a meeting and we sat and cried together. We then had to sit through the entire meeting. I didn't hear one thing that was said. I didn't say one word. I just wanted to throw up. It's heart wrenching to receive this kind of news. Her poor husband... I can't even begin to imagine what he's going through. How do you recover from something like that? It's just so horribly sad.

I went home and hugged Carter and Bob.
I'm so thankful for what I have.
I hope you are too.

I can't even image what the family is going through. What a horriable thing to happen to anyone.

I'm so sorry. I too am an advisor at a college and have lost a student to a car accident. She also left behind a two year old daughter. It breaks my heart everytime I think of her.
