i wanted to bring up a very emotional and touchy subject for me. it has to do with a dear friend from high school, garrett cole luce, who passed away in a tragic accident on november 2012.
this loss hit close to home for me. my old high school was known for being on the smaller side, but there was something about my specific graduating class that made us feel tighter. we were a family. the cheerleader queen bee giggled with the uptight tuba playing girl, and the football team's captain joined forces with the student council president when pranking coach brooks the physics teacher. it was a family. so when one of our own gets taken away in such a heart-wrenching manner, well we felt it. the pain i felt was great, but certainly not deeper than what garrett's parents could possibly be feeling. the luce's are so strong, they've been holding others up when things get tough. they are for sure a pair to admire.
i know that questions will be left unanswered, and to be honest, i don't think i want them answered at all. i know garrett is actually in a better place now, and i don't think questioning God's judgment will bring him back. being in heaven is better than anywhere else in this life.
