Today our I-171H finally came in the mail, eleven days before we leave. It would have been cause for celebration, but our joy is overshadowed by sorrow. Last night, Jarod’s cousin’s wife was struck by a car at a gas station and died. She was a wonderful wife and loving mother to two young daughters. I didn’t know her well, but I liked her very much. We ache for her husband and children.
Everything is in order for us to leave now, so we just wait to find out when we need to be there to honor Molly and support her husband and children at this difficult time. We would be grateful for all kind thoughts and prayers sent their way.
