You just never know

I was told today that two of the students at our school lost the Dads this weekend. They were both sudden and obviously very tragic.

I don't have any details surrounding either death, with the exception of the cause. Mr. H. died of a massive heart attack. His son is a fourth grade student whom I know quite well and just saw Friday afternoon. I remember telling him to have a good weekend. Ugh!

Mr. K. was killed in an accident. I don't know what type of accident as of now. His son is a second grade student that I also know.

It's a horrifying thought, that in just a split moment in time, two women lost that husbands and two little boys are now without their Dad. What a harsh reminder that it could have been me that lost my husband and the father of my children, should it have been another day.
Remember to tell the ones you love just how much they mean to you. It's scary to think you may not get another chance.

Please, keep these families in your thoughts and prayers, for they have a long road ahead of them.

Anna's (4th grade) classmate's father had a heart attack two weeks ago. It blew me away; I never think of the possibility of that happening to people our age, but it does.
I'll keep the families in my prayers.

How horrible about the two losses in your town.
Life really can be altered permanently in a moment. DH and I don't part without telling each other how much we care or telling our kids.

So sorry to hear about the loss. Those poor little boys and their Mommy's have a long road ahead of them. Thank you for the reminder to "kiss, hug, squeeze" (Loo's saying) my family as often as possible. Have a great weekend.
