Sometimes, there are no words.

 On Sunday afternoon I was ready to publish a new post 
about our weekend when we received the most awful phone call.
 Ryan's parents were in a plane crash in their small airplane.
 His dad did not make it, 
and his mom was taken to the hospital in critical condition 
(thankfully, she is recovering). 
We left Sunday night to go back to Missouri 
and I'm just trying to be the best support system I can be. 
If you've got any to spare, thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated.


  1. andrea,
    i am so, so sorry to hear about ryan's parents. please know i have you and everyone involved in this tragic matter in my thoughts. lots and lots of good thoughts making their way over to you and yours.
    best, jes

  2. Andrea, I'm so sorry and had to re-read this a couple times because it's so horrible and such a tragic loss. I'm so sorry for you and Ryan. Praying for you during this difficult time.


  3. So sorry. Praying for you and Ryan. I can't imagine what you are going through right now.

  4. So sorry to hear. There are no words I could write that would be sufficient...I will say an extra prayer tonight.

  5. It's always so tragic when one of our loved ones passes away. I'm so srry to hear about your lost. When I lost my Grandfather, whom I was very closed to, the only thing that gave encouragement was the fact that I knew someday I would see him in heaven. Someone, once told me that when God decides to take someone he loves, it's as if He were looking at His garden and decided that this person was so lovely he just had to bring him inside. My prayers are with you and your family.

  6. Oh my goodness...I am so sorry to hear this. Just want to say that you all are in my prayers and though it will be hard to understand for a while, God will pull you both through. xo

  7. oh wow, im sorry girl.
    All my best :*


  8. Oh dear, I am so sorry. You and Ryan are in our thoughts along with anyone and everyone involved <3

  10. Oh, my heart. I am just stalking, and stumbled across your world, and now my heart is bleeding a bit for your loss.

    thoughts and prayers and well wishes sent everyones way.

  11. Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around what you all are going through right now. I'm praying for you, right now, and I will continue to do so.

  12. My heart aches for you and your husband and your family. I am so sorry for your loss! Ill keep you in my prayers and thoughts, and even though I'm a month late, I can't imagine the pain still attached to this. So sending lots of prayers of healing and love your way!
