    Why do drivers of big trucks like speeding. May their gentle souls rest in perfect peace. The surviving children are alive because of the divine grace of God and I wish them speedy recovery and pray that the good LORD takes care of them.

    I just came back from a wake in their honor. This is such a tragedy, the whole family is distraught. I can’t even begin to explain how many tears I’ve shed for their kids. I lost my mom when I was thirteen, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to endure. To lose BOTH of your parents AND your older brother at such a young age? I wouldn’t be able to cope. It’s really eye opening when you just take a moment to think about it. They thought they were going to see their kids grow up, the little boy never imagined he’d die so young, it’s crazy how fragile life really is… Moments like this draw you back to the reality that we can be gone at any moment. We all must mourn but we all must keep going.
