We had a beautiful day here on Friday, beautiful at least in our opinion. It was rainy, cold, and foggy, just the way the kids and I like it. We decided to get out in the rain and enjoy it. And we did.
The whole time though my thoughts were with another family who lives near us. A family who had a very talented thirteen-year-old boy who attended OCHSA and was a friend of Autry’s. He passed away Wednesday night from a brain aneurysm. My heart breaks for his family and for all the young kids who lost him as a friend. These kids have never been touched by death so closely, and it is hard to see them go through this. It is a reminder that life is fleeting, and we should enjoy every minute of it. Even the mundane parts of it, like walking in the rain.
