Washington Mudslide

My heart just aches for those who have lost loved ones in the Snohomish County (Washington State) mudslide. Having lived about 35 miles south of there for a number of years and still feeling like Washington is home, it feels very close and personal even though we are now all the way across the country and don’t really know anyone in that exact area. We’ve driven right down that road on the way to the Lumberjack Festival in Darrington. Such a huge tragedy…

Our hearts and prayers are with all of those involved…and for all of the responders who are working so diligently…

About Rebecca Carney - One Woman's Perspective

My name is Becky Carney. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 44 years. We have two living children, Eric (41) and Jenna (36). We lost a baby in utero at 19 weeks in 1987. In 2002, our middle son, Jason (19), and his best friend, Alina (20), were broadsided by a drunk driver who was going at least twice the speed limit. They both died instantly. This blog is written from my perspective as a bereaved parent. I don't claim to know what it's like to walk in anyone else's shoes. Each situation is different; each person is different. Everyone handles grief differently. But if I can create any degree of understanding of what it's like to be a parent who has lost a child, then I have succeeded in my reason for writing this blog.
