My 23 year old nephew was hit and killed by a car over the weekend. This is my brother's son. His children and my children grew up together and are very close.

Having gone through what we have all experienced puts us in a unique position to empathize, understand and reach out to others. Grateful for when they allow us to.
Here's another photo of Cindy. She loved all of my nieces and nephews so much. She brought so much joy and fun to their lives. The nieces looked at her as a role model. They said so many kind things about our marriage and our relationship over the years.

Mac, I just read your very sad news:(  I'm so sorry for the heartbreak your brother is going through and, of course, I send lots of Hugs to you.  I'm sure Cindy was there to welcome him with open arms.

Sometimes words fail us and sometimes there are just no words at all. So very sad to lose someone who has barely begun to experience life. (((Mac and your family)))

Oh ((((Mac)))) so very sorry to hear this. Sending prayers to you, your brother and his family.

Oh Mac((((()))))   please know I am holding your brother and  the rest of his family in my prayers. You as well.  We just don't know my friend, do we?  About 6 weeks ago my one brother-in-law and his wife were in Spain when back here my sister-in-law's sister  died suddenly and because of airline problems she could not even get back for the burial.  I am so sorry to hear your news.  What we have Mac is today. Only today.  I am happy your brother will have you as a compassionate  support at this time of loss.  God be with  all of you.
