For my dear friend, Ali

This is my friend, Ali, and her husband Jeremy with their son, Tyler, at our house for our Easter Egg Hunt this last March.

On early Saturday morning, my friend, Ali, her 3 children and her parents were driving from Washington to Salt Lake City for a family reunion. Her father fell asleep at the wheel and lost control of the van. Ali and her father were killed but her 3 children and mother only had minor injures.

Ali was such a sweet and loving person. Before we had Grace, she didn't care that I didn't have kids and still wanted to include me in things. She was a very good mother and was very fun. She always had a smile for you and made you feel like she was so excited to see you.

My heart goes out to her husband, Jeremy, and their sweet children. I know that Ali loved them with all her heart and she will miss them while she is away in Heaven. But we will miss her lovely smile and sweet face and kind spirit. Our lives are blessed to know her.

Oh my.. That is one of the saddest things I have ever herd. I am so sorry for you to loose your dear friend! My heart is so weak when I hear of things like this- It always brings tears to my eyes.

I pray that Ali's Husband can stay strong and keep the spirit close now, in his time of need.

Actually she lived here in Michigan but she was from Puyallup, Wa. We talked about all the people we knew in Washington since we lived there. The church is such a small world.
