My husband coming home..... while another family grieves

We originally thought it would be Saturday when Jason and his unit got back to Alabama, but now it looks like it may be Sunday (and/or even Monday). Either way soon,....very very soon my husband will be home with us again.

As I sit here excited about my husband returning home to me.. my heart is deeply saddened as yesterday I learned of a friend dying. A guy I went to school with named Kevin Jennings passed away Sunday at the age of 33. My youngest daughter Alex told me when she got in the car Monday (as his youngest daughter Hunter is in her grade). She said it was a "heart attack". I was later told it was an aortic aneurysm.

I havent talked to Kevin in a long time, but would see him and his wife in passing. I saw his mom almost every day picking up their daughters from school. I cant begin to imagine how his wife Audra, and their daughters are feeling, how his brother Chris must feel loosing his only brother, and his parents loosing a child. I pray that they find comfort in their precious memories of Kevin.

This just breaks my heart. This just really bothers me.

Please keep the Jennings family in your prayers!!

I will certainly keep that family in my prayers. It really makes you realize how much we are blessed & we don't even know it.
