Nightmare

This week has been a nightmare. Last Friday, Connie (my sister) and Nick lost their wonderful grandson in a motorcycle accident. Dustin was 21 years old, the oldest of three sons born to Matt and Julie. He was Army and had just graduated from jump school. To make the nightmare even worse, Dustin's brother, Dylan, had just left aboard a ship to Afghanistan. Dylan is a Navy man. The funeral was originally scheduled for today, but Dylan couldn't get home until Saturday. Please keep Matt, Julie, Dylan, Dalton, Connie and Nick and our whole family in your prayers.

I will keep your family in my prayers, because I understand we lost my 19 year old brother 2 1/2 years ago to a car accident. I cannot imagine what your sister is going through having lost a son and having one go to a war zone. They shall be in my daily intentions each morning when I say a my rosary and divine mercy chaplet.
Many, many condolences during this time of grief. My heart goes out to you all.

How truly sad ! Such a waste of a young life. I hate motorbikes as I lost my closest cousin ( were brought up like brother and sister ) in a motorbike accident when we were 17 yo. My thoughts and love are with all your family at this terrible time - so sorry Jeanne xxx

How tragic. I'm so sorry this has happened. I hate motorcycles with a passion. One of my friends died as the result of a motorcycle crash too. I'll be sure to pray for your whole family.

Take care,
