A Mother Missed

This week my family has mourned the unexpected death of Alice Hansen, which occurred shortly after she gave birth to her third child.  The initial shock of hearing about someone your age, in your family, passing away made way to the helpless feeling that nothing one could say or do could ease the pain and grief of her husband.  However, we believe that families can be together forever, and know that they will be reunited again someday.

You can read more about the story here.  There is a donation fund for Alice's family there as well. If you feel you can help in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.  Expressions Vinyl is also donating $1 for every "like" to this Facebook post, so please click it!  Thank you!

Christina, what a sad thing for your family. Such an occurrence is really unfathomable. Will keep your cousin and his children in my thoughts and prayers. So sorry.

My heart is breaking for Kurt and his children. What a terrible situation to be in, I can't not imagine trying to cope with something that huge, so life altering.

It makes you feel so mortal so dependent on the Lord for everyday and to make every moment count. So scary that it was childbirth related to- we forget that that still happens. I hope you are doing well and that your family receives the comfort they need. Thoughts and prayers.
