A horrible thing has happened in our little town of Houston this week. A friend of mine,(Grace) a lady whom I admire and love, and was one of the first ladies to accept me into town and make me a friend, has suffered a terrible loss. Her older brother, has killed his wife and killed himself.
They had been married 20 years and were going through some tough stuff. And on Sunday night, he had come to a decision.
I live 4 doors away from this couple and I was reading a book looking out my big window and saw my friend'* husband(Brendan) go to the house and come running out and then police swarming the area.
I watched with fascination as all the police entered the house and wondering why Brendan'* truck door was wide open. I was not aware anything was terribly wrong until Grace'* daughter came to the door, and started to cry. I brought her into my house and we had a cuddle and a talk, and then Little Jess, being the good friend that she is, took this little child, into her room and just sat with her for about an hour and let her cry.
I just got home now from Grace'* house, a few of her friends got together and cleaned her house and made sure they would have everything they would need, so they would not need to run to the store and have to face questions.
I held Grace in my arms and let her cry. I don't know what I would do in this kind of situation, and I feel horrible for this family.
Please all, keep this famliy in your thoughts and prayers.
