One of my good friends when I was growing up just recently lost her young husband in a plane crash. All three of us graduated together. I didn't really know Jordan, but Shelley and I have been friends since Kindergarten. Last Friday Jordan and his brother and father left in a small airplane being flown by Jordan's brother for an end of the summer fishing trip. When they didn't return on Sunday as planned, Shelley and the rest of the family became worrried. Turns out, they never even made it to their destination.
Their plane was found the next day with all three dead. Shelley and Jordan have three young children, ages 4, 2, and 3 months. My heart and prayers go out to the whole Mingo Family, Shelley, their brothers and sisters, and the poor mother who lost a husband and two sons all in one second...
Families are FOREVER!
