rough week for my family and friends...

  1. my cousin died in a motorcycle accident on Thanksgiving night. He had just bought it a few days prior and hid it at a friends house (parents don't like them). He was hit by a drunk driver and killed instantly. He was also in a severe car accident at the age of 7 that put him in the hospital for 7 months. Got worried when he didn't show for Thanksgiving dinner, but the police finally got in touch with his parents. So very sad.

    My best friend from the Philippines just found out her brother died today. She received that news via text message but has been unable to get in touch with her family for any details. She is terribly upset as she cannot get home, nor can she talk with anyone about what happened.

    I would appreciate any positive thoughts or prayers you could send this way. THey sure are needed.

    Wow such horrible news. I am so sorry for your family and that of your friend. Was that death typhoon-related, I wonder?

    You are all in my thoughts......I am just so sorry.

    no, my friend's brother was killed by a gunshot wound. they think he may have gotten involved in something way over his head. he didn't live at home, so his family had no idea what he was doing, other than work.

    thanks for your support my friends. it'll be a hard holiday season this year.
