Girls Cottage Weekend 2005

Girls Cottage Weekend 2005 Posted by Picasa

Its been a weekend of mixed emotions. This weekend was the 5th Annual Girls weekend and 3rd annual "cottage" weekend. We had a lot of fun, great weather, great company and great food. What more could you ask for? It was a relaxing and refreshing time away.

However, it was a difficult weekend for me. On Friday night I rec'd a call about 30 seconds before I was to leave work for the day my mom called me to tell me there had been a terrible accident. Kristens Uncle, his wife and their baby had went off the road, at that point all my mom knew was that Kristens Aunt was dead and that his Uncle and the baby were being rushed to the hospital. I thought I was going to pass out when she told me, I had no idea how to react, I started to panic a bit but quickly pulled myself together and just started shaking. I kept telling my mom, find out for sure if its true, what if its just gossip. But Kristens family called not long after to confirm the worse. They were in Nfld on vacation, with the hopes of Christening their 6 month old baby boy. As of now Kristens Uncle is hoping to get out of the hospital today, the family service is tomorrow evening where they will also perform the christening of the baby. And Wed will be the funeral. Its such a sad situation, but the whole family is there for support, to get him and the baby through this terrible time. Kristen and I will not be going to the funeral since we're going home in a few weeks but we'll make a point of visiting the grave and saying our goodbyes when we're home.

Oh my gosh, I didn't realise they were family of Kristen's. Mom was telling me about the accident yesterday. Please send my condolences.
