Oh what a heavy heart...

Last night, right as I was crawling into bed, I got on Facebook to try to tire myself out a little bit.
Unfortunately, it only made matters worse.
All I could see posted over my friends status' was "Rest in Peace, Devin."
It instantly broke my heart.
I wasn't very close with Devin, but I've known him for most of my life.
My mom has worked with his dad ever since my mom worked at SCANA (15+ years).
Devin, my friend Callie, and myself would all play hide-and-seek at their work Christmas parties.
He was always such a nice guy and always spoke to me whenever we were around each other.
One time, I remember driving to class and he called me out of the blue and asked me to lunch.
I even saw him two weeks ago at the wedding where I did the photo booth.
He was so happy and he was having such a great time.

I don't know enough details to explain what happened other than he was killed instanly upon impact and two of the people in the car were in critical condition last time I heard. One was flown out to Savannah. One of the guys that was hurt pretty badly is one of my most favorite people that I graduated with.

Please send your prayers for these guys and their families on this Easter holiday.
Its unfair that someone's life had to be cut so short.
He has the sweetest family and I know that today, I'll be thinking of them all.
My heart is so heavy and I don't want to do anything today at work.

I guess it's true...
Only the good die young.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss! Their families are in my thoughts & prayers today! love you!

  2. Oh, that is so devastating! My prayers are with you and everyone involved!

    I'm new to your blog! I found you through FTLOB and can't wait to read more! Feel free to check out my blog as well. :)

  3. Sorry to hear about Devin. It's another one of those reminders that life is short and precious. As cliche as it sounds, we have to remember that every day on Earth is a gift, a gift that not everyone receives. Thanks for sharing your story with us, sorry for your loss!
