A few people from out of town have asked me if there were any survivors in the crash last week. All four men on board were lost, and, once identities were released, I discovered that I did know one of them.
Josh attended our church with his wife Stacy, but I met them for the first time when they booked a family portrait session with me a year and a half ago. After a long engagement, they were married just six months ago, last June.
Stacy also has two children- a bright, sunny, and incredibly smart daughter, and an energetic and charming son. And they honestly do like each other just as much as the photo implies.
Obviously this is a horrible season for this family, and we are praying for them, and I hope I can find a way to support Stacy after the phone calls and meals and first wave of support goes away.
So, love your family, stay awake and alert and don't waste your life, and take lots of pictures.
