A family from another message board I frequent is going through a very rough time. I've been messaging with this group since Jack was about 6 months old. The dad & daughter (9 years old...same age as Jack) were walking in a crosswalk Wednesday night & were hit by a drunk driver on a motorcycle. The daughter died Thursday morning from her injuries & the dad is still in critical condition. He's had 1 leg amutated & they are trying to save his other leg. He's expected to live, but has a long road ahead of him. I just can't imagine what the mom is going through, having lost her daughter & almost her husband in such a tragic way. If you will, please keep this family in your thoughts & prayers.

Here's a news article about the accident.

Oh my Jenn! That is one of the most tragic things I have ever read! That poor mother. Are there other children in the home or was she an only child?

That is so sad. My mother's parents were killed by a drunk driver. The driver killed someone else a couple months earlier. She died in the accident where my grandparents died.
