Yesterday a tragic loss was suffered by our dear friends; the loss of a life-- of a son, a brother, an uncle. The grief is immense and deep and torrid. The community is shaken. I know that everyone is so thankful for this community at this time, for those who are so kind, for those in cars or planes or who fly across the world to be with the family. Many of us have lived together in the same house at one point or another, we have intertwined lives, and the family who is in mourning is a beloved family, a family who has touched many, many people.
Please pray for the family. I don't know what more to say. This is beyond any of us. I don't think we will ever be the same. But underneath are the everlasting arms.
