Yareth Coutiño Jenn, though I've only seen you at BBD a few times, and did not realize you lost someone in that crash, I've had the situation & people affected in my prayers. My consolation, not knowing anyone personally in the crash, but having been to Alto Frio several times when we took our youth group & girls to camp, was that everyone in that bus was coming back from that retreat closer to God. Their relationships and faith I am sure had been strengthened during their time in the retreat and although their loved ones will grieve their loss, they are rejoicing w/Our Lord. I send you my prayers that God provide comfort & peace in your heart during this time and that He reassures your faith that you will be reunited w/your dad one day.

Beth Hudson Stenstrom Yes, this is the beauty of it... We know your dad is with Christ in a wonderful place. It will still be super hard for you all who are left behind, though, as you will miss him terribly, especially around holidays and birthdays. Remember to take time for yourselves.... drink a lot of water (it helps with stress) and cry. The first year is the worst, but you will get through it together.

Ninette Winston Need you to know Jen my heart is grieving for your loss ... what a wonderful man he was. Thinking about the hurt you family is experiencing just brings me to tears . Knowing that we know where he is comforting... but the deeper loss of his hugs .. smiles ... you and your family will please spend time to grieve and reflect on what a great dad you had on this earth . Will be praying our heavenly Father holds you tight during this time of loss. Much love and hugs Jen to your family, from my family.
