A young woman was killed in a car accident on Friday. She was the daughter of someone I work with. I can’t begin to fathom the pain he and his wife are going through right now. I have, unfortunately, seen it before: in the eyes of my sister and brother-in-law when my nephew Art died and in the eyes of one of my Mom’s friends when her daughter was killed in a car accident.
The 18 year old in her car was her cousin; imagine what that girl is going through…. her cousin dead…. being there in the accident…
The whole office is quiet. This girl had a beautiful singing voice and we had all heard her CD and marveled it was Paul’s daughter. He always talked about her in such glowing terms and now she’s gone, and her parents crippled with grief.
