Tragic Day

I am deeply saddened today. My next door neighbor's 17 year old daughter was killed in a car accident while on her way to school this morning. Her name is Chelsea and she's the same age as my daughter.

Please keep Chelsea, her parents, and family in your prayers.

Local News Story

It was scarey for me for a short time when I first heard a local person at work talking about it this morning, when they said "a 17 year old Romeo High School girl was killed" my heart went in my throat. I texted my kid and she answered thankfully. Then when I discovered it was my neighbor next door, again, my heart became heavy and still is. I said hi to her and her dad last evening and her and I actually pulled out of our driveways this morning at the same time. Chilling.

Two of the three other kids in the car were also neighborhood kids and thankfully they are ok.

A couple last things to remember because life is a precious gift.

Don't ever go to bed mad.

Never pass up an opportunity to tell the ones you love
"I love you"

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry. I will certainly keep Chelsea's family in my thoughts and you as well.

Thanks Lala!!

I have been over talking to the parents a couple times this afternoon. They had a lot of family there too. Lots of hugs and support is all can offer at this time.

Peace and love dear.
