Update: A Sad Day

We never know when it is 
"our time"...
Today we learned of a few friends that were on the AirFrance flight that went missing from Rio to Paris.

One was a couple that lived life to fullest, always enjoyed themselves and the wife (who I knew more-so than the husband) always had a smile.  
My last image of them is dancing at an American Society Texas BBQ for St. Patrick's Day.  They were great dancers and looked so happy.

The other person is the husband of a lady that my kids play tennis with their kids, who are only 4 and 5.  He worked occasionally with my husband in the same line of work.  

I wanted to add here that I just heard of another British lady who had her 11 year old son, flying alone, back to his boarding school in the UK,
 also on the plane.
Also, another Brazilian gentleman that just got married this past year, who had celebrated his birthday this past weekend, and also worked with my husband occasionally, was also another on board.

May God bless them and their families, and help them to find peace in the coming days, weeks, months and years of their lives....

Life is really not fair. It is just too sad.

I got a few phone calls from people who knew I would be going to Paris and they didn´t know the date. I am so blessed that I wasn´t due to travel this week,

One never knows when one has looked at another's face for the last time. I think about this a lot when with friends and family. Today I feel in mourning for people I didn't even know...those who died, and those left behind. Just looking out my window now as morning comes, I think how amazing to be alive...how precious.
