I have some Christmas posts below this one but I wanted to put this out here immediately.
A blogging friend who wishes to remain anonymous emailed me today.
Her brother-in-law, wife, and five children were on their way home from a Christmas performance in Utah County, Utah when their car was struck by a drunken driver who ran a red light.
The mother and two of the children were killed and a third badly injured but appears to be recovering.
"Pat" sent me a link to a memorial page for the family and asked me to post it. Of course I will. The first thing I did though was leave a comment of my own.
She'd be grateful to anyone who leaves a note of condolence to the family. She asked that you not refer back to her by her blogger name or her url. I'm not including it here of course but we may share some readers.
I read enough to know the family is deeply devout and loved in their community. I pray their faith will sustain them.
Here is the link to the Memorial Page.
