questions with no answers...

there are times in life
when one must
rely solely on faith...

erin gaydos carlisle
2/18/1986 ~ 5/30/2011
...for there are no answers
no explanations
no foreseeable reasons
that such a beautiful
young woman
having just celebrated
 her first year of marriage
her twenty fifth birthday
working in a field
of helping others
would be taken from her loving
husband, parents and family
so soon
erin's mother and i worked together
when my precious sarah was born
marianne was such a support
helping to link me to services
in the community
offering her ears and shoulders
as i needed them
i truly cannot imagine
the pain she must now be feeling
unfathomable to the human heart
i know their strong faith
will guide them through these
darkest of days
my prayers are with you
gaydos and carlisle families

I saw this tragedy on the news last night. I am so sorry for that whole family. Such a horrible loss. I thought it seemed as if your usual bright light was a bit dimmed when I saw you yesterday. I will keep you and the Gaydos family in my thoughts.

You are so right; questions with no answers. I am so sad to read this, Joyce.
