We just heard some horrible, saddening, heart breaking news.
My mom worked for a ranch near here as their general manager. The family had three children and their middle son was the same age as our oldest boy so consequently they became fast friends. They played together, my son spent the night at their house, we taught him how to ride my sons motorcycle, basically the boys just had fun together. Of course my mom knows them all very well as she was at the ranch daily.
We found out on Wednesday that their middle son, Cole, was killed when he was drug by a horse. We don't know the details surrounding this yet. All I know is that my heart has just been breaking for this family. It is just unimaginable pain that I can't even begin to comprehend. I just think of him and look at my son who is the same age, into the same things, with two siblings. So many similarities and I just can't imagine it all.
My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family during this incredibly difficult time.
Hug your loved ones tighter today.
