my daughter's heart is breaking

ok, on my last post i was away on a beautiful romantic weekend with my husband. saturday night we got a call, you know the type i'm talking about. my son was giving us terrible news, one of his friends, and my daughter's BEST and dearest friend  had died in a car accident. the accident happened around 3 p.m. saturday. we came home from our little get away to be strong for the kids and, i'm not taking this well. i loved this young man like he was my own, he was pure love and gave so much of himself. chris was fun, loving, gentle and kind. my daughter, susan introduced chris to our family when she was in high school and we embraced and loved him from that time forward. chris and susan were inseparable during their high school years. they were the prom queen and king. their friendship remained strong as they became young adults. they leaned on each other always, they just had a once in a life time connection. we will miss this young man with all our heart & soul. many prayers are needed for chris's family as well as ours. i'm just going to take a little time off from blogging, please keep us in your prayers.
