a tragedy ...

A coworker's daughter passed away yesterday morning. The daughter was only 12 years old and seemed healthy. From what I know, the kid complained of aching feet, passed out, and never woke up. I cannot imagine the pain my coworker is going through right now.

A line from the Lord of the Rings movie comes to mind with this event and in any situation where the child passes away before his parents.

No parent should have to bury their child.

I, as a parent, know that this is true. This is the most painful thing that a parent will ever go through. I hope that my coworker will be strong enough to surpass this. I pray that she will be able to survive this.


  1. i understand how it feels to loose a child...I lost children.... i feel sorry...

  2. aching feet? passed out and never woke up??? what did the doctor say?
