It is the most wonderful time of the year until something sad happens. Tristen's father passed away earlier this week and my heart is aching for her. I wish there was something I could do to take her pain away.
With all the excitement of getting a place to live in Pittsburgh, packing up their belongings for the movers to come, leaving the day after Christmas and starting a new career as an Assistant Professor at the College of Pittsburgh I just can't bear the sadness in her heart today.
Please keep Tristen and her family in your prayers. For those who do not know, Tristen is our sons fiance and has been a special member of our family for 8 years now.
