I went on a river rafting trip down the Grand Canyon last month. It was with a bunch of coworkers on a company trip. It was a great time. During the trip, there were a few of us that got to know each other really well.

Last week, one of those friends was killed in a car accident. She and her two children were killed. Her husband lost his whole family. This is very sad news.

Make sure you hug your friends and family. You never know when it will be the last time.

And the saddest part is that she was going to fast and didn't stop at a stop sign. She was hit by a semi truck. Please drive responsibly and obey the laws of the road. It's really not worth it to speed or disobey traffic laws.

That's horrible! My heart goes out to you and her relatives.

And, yes: Hugs are always a good idea.

Having lost my very young niece in tragic & terrible circumstances a few months ago I completely understand what you're saying.

Life is so fragile. Just one moment of madness can cause such a horrible impact on so many other lives.

I hope her husband gets a lot of support & is able to eventually move on with his life.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

This is why I make a point of kissing my wife before I walk out the door in the morning. A close friend of ours died quite suddenly last year after riding his bike to work. I've never had the courage to ask his widow if they kissed good-bye that day, but the sudden, unexpectedness has made her mourning that much harder.
