I had an appointment to get my hair cut today. I got a call from my stylist's coworker saying that Stacy would be unavailable to cut my hair. Since that's so unusual, I asked if Stacy was sick today, and Emily told me that Stacy's sister had been in a terrible auto accident.
Let me mention, I live in a very small town. I knew immediately who Stacy's sister was, it was all over our local news source's website last night.
Nancy is Stacy's sister. Eve is Stacy's niece and she is only 9 years old.
This is so terribly heartbreaking.
The word at this point, on our small town website, is that Nancy is in very serious condition, and perhaps Eve will not survive, and some are speculating online that Eve has already passed.
How can a mother survive news like this?
Of course, I hope against hope that this is a terrible mistake and that the rumor mill is horribly wrong.
Please pray for Nancy and her 9 year old daughter Eve.
Prayers work. God willing.
Eve didn't make it. Her family kept her on life support in order to make her a viable organ donor. I hope that Eve's donations to others will give some measure of relief to the family.
But however one looks at this tragedy, it's a terrible loss.
My condolences to the Wilson family. May God hold you close during this difficult time.
