Samantha & Mom
This past Sunday afternoon, Bob's little cousin Samantha died in a car accident. She was 18-years-old and just graduated from high school. Her boyfriend also passed away in the accident.
They were driving home from a family picnic when another car going in the opposite direction smashed into them. Samantha was getting ready to start college to become a nurse. You can see from the picture what a beautiful girl she was.
I always wonder if things like this are appropriate to post on my blog, and I usually do post because I believe in the power of prayer. It goes without saying that Samantha's parents and
siblings need your thoughts and prayers, as does the rest of the family.
I wonder why and how something so tragic can happen to 2 sweet kids who were just starting their lives.
