13 Jun Home and then some …
Well, we made it home and the trip was fairly uneventful. Until we got home anyway. Upon arrival (literally on the Flyaway bus to Van Nuys from LAX), we received a call informing us that an acquaintance whom we had just seen the day of my car accident (May 23) had passed away that morning (June 5).
Keri Houghtalin, just 43 years old, was a survivor of breast cancer and had apparently been experiencing symptoms that were diagnosed as leukemia just a week before she died. Her daughter’s 18th birthday was last Thursday. followed by her High School graduation on Friday. Her son just graduated from Middle School today.
Life just has a way of taking us by surprise, doesn’t it? I spoke at church yesterday and will detail here sometime this week some of those twists and turns for us as a Church Family. Nothing nearly as tragic as Keri’s death, but unexpected stuff nonetheless.
