heavy heart

my heart is broken tonight for my high school friend, ali, and her husband, tommy--they lost their 5 year old boy in a car accident today.  tommy's parents were driving on k-10 when a car went across the median and hit them head on (both vehicles were going 70mph and there were no skid marks so it was a very bad crash).  their little girl was not breathing but firefighters rescitated her and she is in the lawrence hospital in critical care.  here is a link to the story:

i know ali loved her little boy sooo much and i sit here crying thinking about how she must be feeling.  if i had to look at parker's lifeless body at his funeral knowing he would never breath again, laugh again, smile, hug me, etc. i don't know if i could do it.  it is just so sad.  a few weeks ago ali and were talking about how her son was starting football this year and how she had been waiting 5 years for this day (we both love sports and are so excited to watch our kids play them) and now she will never get to watch him. 

here is a picture of her sweet little boy.  she has a lot of photos of him and i am sure she is thankful for every single one right now. 
i need to get off the computer before i drive myself nuts thinking about this, but it is all that is consuming my thoughts right now.  love you all.

This is so tragic. I'm sitting in my office crying for them. I just pray that Courtlyn recovers.
