My nephew Jeffrey died unexpectedly Monday night. It has been a difficult week (ludicrous understatement).

Today was the funeral, and now comes the worst part.

Why can't the world stop for tragedy?

Oh Liz, I'm so sorry for you and your family! From your pictures, he looked like a fun, cute kid. I can't even begin to imagine the heartache and pain you are going through. Know that we are always thinking of you guys! We love and miss you!

Mags told me this morning. I can't imagine the Bennett home without that crazy kid popping in. When Jeffrey was probably six, every time I went over, he was in a Spiderman costume. It was hysterical - he would climb on anything and pounce on you if you weren't paying attention. He will be very missed. Love you!

We have been praying and praying for you and your family. Why the entire world doesn't stop when these terrible losses happen, is exactly what I thought when I lost my Dad! Please know how much we love you.
