Sadness All Around

I debated for a while today over whether or not to blog about this, but I'm a strong believer in the power of prayer and so, if you are too, perhaps you could send a few much needed ones by way of my sister-in-law Julie, and her wonderful family.

As you have no doubt heard, a small commuter plane went down over Buffalo, killing all 49 people on board and one person inside the house where the plane crashed. It appears to have been as sudden as it was horrific and, like most tragedies of this sort, it causes us to pause and shudder, imagining those on board and their now grieving families.

Matilda Quintero, Julie's cousin, was a flight attendant on the plane.

Matilda left behind two adult daughters, her 90 year old mother, and an amazing extended family who will no doubt struggle to come to terms with something so unimaginable.

I don't know what else to say.

There are no words.
This is a very difficult Day 31.
