Saying goodbye to Tiffany


I've been feeling not quite up to snuff lately. I'm not sure what it is. The weather probably. I always get the doldrums this time of year. I was thinking about how crappy Michigan weather can be, gray all day, for days on end. Yes, the winter has been mild, but the sun still doesn't want to come out and play.

So....while I was lementing the weather and my training, someone was in terrible pain. It makes me sad.


Tiffany was an eighth grader. The same grade as my son. They were on the same soccer team last year. I can still picture her running around in her green jersey playing defense.

Tiffany took her own life Monday.

We are heartbroken. I am crying now. My heart aches for her Mother and Father. I am praying that some way, some how, God will ease their pain.


Hug your children, tell them how much you love them, tell them that no matter what they can always come to you....tell them until they are sick of hearing it and then tell them again.


Tiffany,

You will be missed.

This is so sad. So young and so much to look forward to. My heart breaks for her and her family. My they some how find peace in there time of sorrow.

Oh my gosh...that is so sad. Kids these days really have to go through a lot at school with friends and peers. Makes you realize how easy that could've been someone I knew.
