"Hello...? Hi, dad. We've been at the college, I had to keep my phone off. What's up?"
(mom listening, starting to wilt)
"WHAT?! Are you sure?! WHEN?! How is he?!"
(Mom starts sobbing, leaning on the kitchen island...)
"Ok. Thanks for calling, Dad! I love you too... bye."
"What's wrong, Mom?" I asked.
"That was grandpa... he, uh"
(she shudders and cried more)
"said Isaac was in a motorcycle accident this afternoon."
I was stunned...
shocked is more like it, I suppose.
This was the beginning of two years of life without our Isaac. Many more to come.

Two years ago, I heard this very conversation.
It was a hard one for sure... We didn't know Isaac's condition.
It was horrid.
He passed away on September 28th, 2007 from a "non-survivable" motorcycle accident he had in Roseville, California.
Today is a sad day of rememberance for my family and I.
Even in this... I know!
God is GOOD!
He has a plan for this... Even in this, we praise God for His mercies anew every morning!
