~Heart Aches . . . and Prayers~

Words can not describe how devastating and sad the news I heard yesterday is.

One of my favorite couples that I have spent a lot of time with, helped plan out details of their wedding, spent the most special day of their lives with . . .

10 days after their wedding.
A tragic thing had happened.

The husband Andy was working out as usual.
Had a heart attack.
They couldn't save him.

I can't even imagine how Brooke must feel right now.  They were just starting their life together.
I know God has a big plan and that our wants and desires are nothing compared to the bigger plan.
But it's just so sad.
Brooke my heart breaks for you.  My prayers are for you and your family.
I can't even imagine what you are going through right now.

Just know that you both are truly loved.

I never ask for anything of my lovely followers, but can you please send some love and prayers out to Brooke and her family?



  1. I can not tell you how touched I am by this post and how overcome with emotion I am even though I do not know Brook personally...this just brought back the tragic event that I experienced last year with the love in my life who is young and healthy, but he went into cardiac arrest and should not be here today, but we are so, so lucky that he is one of the few who made it, even after he had no heartbeat, and I can not tell you how much I feel for Brook in this moment because I know how quickly life can be taken away, especially by something you don't expect at this stage in life, and I can only imagine what she is going through...I am so, so sorry! I wonder if Andy's heart attach was due to the heart condition my love has, but didn't know he is something I am trying to bring awareness to. I am thinking of her, you and sending extra smiles!

  2. this is so sad. Just when they were starting out their life together. One of my hubbies good friends died suddenly 3 years ago he was in his 30's and we still miss him. That's the only time i've ever seen him cry.
    How lucky that you were part of their day to make it special as i'm sure you did.
    My heart bleeds for Brooke. This is exactly why we should all live like their is no tomorrow.

  3. Oh my goodness, taken too soon. So sad. I'm sorry for your and the families loss. What a tragedy.
