Not good news

Anyone who's been around this blog for awhile would have seen comments by Chumplet, who is actually Sandra Cormier, a fellow romance author. This blog interviewed her in March and I consider her one of my blog/writer buddies. I remembered her from back in 2006/2007 when I was addicted to Miss Snark's blog. When I started mine last year I looked her up and discovered, among other things, that she had lived here in Trinidad as a small child. She's one of those connections that blogging has made possible, and that I truly value.

Her 15 year old nephew, Brandon Crisp, went missing three weeks ago after a disagreement with his parents. Yesterday his body was found in a wooded area some miles from his home.

I cannot even begin to understand what Sandra, her sister and brother-in-law and the rest of her family must be going through right now. I'm a parent; this is any parent's worst nightmare. When something like this happens, I feel so helpless; I don't know what to say except the old tired words. "I'm sorry. I'm praying for you and your family." I hope that somehow, it helps - even if it's just a tiny bit.

So, please go across to Sandra's blog and leave a word or two. Words are all we have, but I think she'll appreciate the thought.

Just awful. Words are redundant.
