Today Marks a Year… In Memoriam….

Life can be fleeting….

I’ve been an absolute mess since Sunday morning when I found out about the horrible accident that has now claimed the lives of four Brunswick teenagers; Jeff Chaya, Blake Bartchak, Lexi Poerner and Kevin Fox. Julia Romito is still hanging in there and I’ve read that she’s doing better. God, I hope she comes out of this okay… at least as well as she can.

Life can be fleeting….

I didn’t know any of these children personally. I chatted a few times with Jeff’s parents as their twin daughters, Amanda and Allison, played basketball with my oldest daughter, Alexis, a few years ago…

I can’t even imagine the pain the Chaya, Bartchak, Poerner, Fox and Romito families are going through…

Hug your children and love them every day….
