We just received an email from our dear friend W (who coincidentally visited our house with his wife & kids three weeks ago for the first time in eight years) letting us know that his father-in-law was killed in an extremely unfortunate car crash in Florida this morning. He died in a collision with a police car heading to an emergency (my first reaction is to think that it was probably the policeman's fault!). :(
This is absolutely devastating because he was still fairly young (only 64) and he leaves behind a wife, a son, a daughter, five grand-daughters and one grandson who loved him very very much. I cannot imagine his daughter's pain. We've known this family really well since we moved to the U.S. back in 1996... this is just so unspeakably sad.
The worst part is that W has said in his email that the media is after the family, thus adding insult to injury in such a difficult moment in their lives... W sounded extremely upset that his house is crowded with people and that it's all really chaotic. I cannot imagine how hard it must be to cope with such a situation, so unexpected, so demanding and so heartbreaking.
Please keep Kelly, her mom, her children, brother and nieces in your thoughts and prayers!
