Moment of Silence

I found out this morning that a friend of ours passed away in a car accident early this morning.

He works with my husband.  He's in my Economics class.  I helped him study for our first test.  We joked around about my husband.  We were just talking about our test scores and how we had to do on the final.  We just joked around on Monday night and as we were walking out of the building, I told him that I'd see him next week.

I had no idea that the time I saw him "next week" it would be at his funeral.

Please, pray for his family, his friends, coworkers, and all of us.

when i learned that my good friend passed i saw this quote somewhere and it is so eloquent and true:

"The quality, not the longevity, of one's life is what is important." -Martin Luther King Jr.
