I just keeping asking "Why"?

Why? Why? Why? How can such terrible things happen to such a wonderful family?

Yesterday a dear friend of mine was killed in a car accident. Ali Van Geison was such a wonderful woman -- truly an inspirational person. Have you ever know someone who has sweet sophistication? Who is the most compassionate and humble person? A woman who was so gentle and kind and beautiful and talented but completely unpretentious? That was Ali. Ali was one of my favorite people. I was so fortunate to be her friend at church, at our FHE group and at Addy's ballet class. She was the mother of 3 beautiful children. Her oldest, Brinley was Addy's age. This little girl is a spittin image of her mother and I am sure will carry the legacy of her mother with her always. I pray that these little ones and their father, Jeremy, will be comforted and the Lord will be their companion throughout their lives.

I too was a friend of Ali and knew Craig as well. It's just so overwhelmingly sad. Have you seen this website?
