Wordless Wednesday - "Tragic" - 12/3/08



A young woman of 17 was involved in an accident in my neighborhood and passed away on Sunday. Her name was Cassady Rose Jones-French. I did not know her, but that does not make it any less tragic. I was touched by the tribute paid to her on the side of our lane where the accident occurred.
Find out more about her here Cassady. She obviously was loved by many. No one is supposed to outlive their children. My sympathy goes out to those left behind.

What a terrible tragedy, to lose someone so young and so vibrant.

My thoughts go out to all who knew her.

It is always so sad to hear about a child leaving us too soon.

This reminds us that life can be taken away from us in a flash. Her parents will cherish that last photo taken with them. How sad for her little sister to relive that memory each holiday season. But there is never any fairness in death, particularly for those left behind.

My heart goes out to her family...co

An uncle of a friend of mine lost his two sons in an accident three days after Christmas. I think of them every year. I feel terrible for this girl's loved ones. I am impressed by this memorial-just beautiful flowers, not stuffed animals that people dragged out of their attic, or candles, or balloons. Some memorials get really junky, at least here in the Phila. area.

Hello, this is Cassady's mother and I wanted to thank you for creating this blog remembering Cass. The picture you posted is very beautiful. First time I have seen this at the site. It's too difficult to go. thank you- she was the best. We are broken- and the pieces don't seem to fit together anymore, but we try. Her little 5 year old sister sleeps in her bed every night. And we talk about her all of the time.

Thank you Mrs. French. I have been writing all my life and this is the most rewarding response I have ever received. I pass this site every day of my life and not once have I failed to think of your daughter. When I am walking my dog I always pause for a minute to reflect. I have 3 children of my own and cannot imagine the devastation you have experienced. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
