I was going to post about my Penguin Plunge and some other random stuff but I found out last night about the tragic loss of a friend. I had only seen Michelle once in the past 10 years or so, unfortunately at the funeral of her father last summer. She had an infectious smile and a wonderful joy for life. She was killed last week by her estranged boyfriend, the father of her young son, before he killed himself. What an awful tragedy for her family and most especially her son who will not have the time with his wonderful mother that he deserves. Just another reminder that life is precious, I'm going to kiss my kids goodnight.

Oh, J, I am so sorry to hear about that. May she rest in peace, and may her young son find his way to one day put this in its place, and know how much she loved him. That is so so sad. Hugs to you.
I'll go kiss my kids, too.

oh, i'm so very sorry for the loss of your friend! what an awful, senseless tragedy, you are so right.

i pray that there are people in her son's life that will teach him about his mother and that even though she won't be with him physically, he'll know her spirit is with him.

big hugs to you.
