Goodbye, Jenn

Jenn Viveiros was taken from us Saturday. A close friend to my teenagers and a frequent participant in the church youth group with them, Jenn was friendly and upbeat. She enjoyed many ultimate frisbee games in the church back yard with David, Seth, Zach, Aly, and Sam (and many others).

How can we make sense of this tragedy? I don't believe we can. Some things I may never know nor understand. It may never make sense to me.

The pain is stark, blunt, and hard. I cannot imagine the agony her parents must be experiencing. I can see the impact her loss is already having on my family.

May God help us all to get through this.
