Please say a prayer.

Please pray for my family as they morn the loss of my cousin Chasity and her unborn baby.

I grew going to my aunt Stephanie and uncle Brent's house on the weekend. I loved to watch My aunt Stephanie take care of her two babies Chad and Chasity. I used to pretend Chasity was my baby. They are a big part of the reason I love kids.
Chasity was killed by a hit and run driver, she was seven months pregnant. She leaves behind her two year old daughter Ava.
Also say a prayer for the good Samaritan Nelson Soto that was helping her. He was killed as he assisted Chasity with her car. He leaves behind a wife and five children. His wife and son witnessed the accident outside of their home. We truly do not know what our future holds. Chasity was twenty four years old, I am sure she thought she had many years left.

So you, too, must keep watch! For you do not know the day or hour of my return.
Matt. 25:13


  Lord help me to live each day as if there is no promise of tomorrow because there truly is not.  I will squeeze my babies tight today I will remember to say I love you as I walk out the door. I will thank you Jesus as I lay down and everyone under my roof is safe. I will remember that life is a gift and there are no grantees. I will praise you for Heaven when all will finally be as it should, perfect and no goodbyes.

This is beyond devastating. We will certainly hold you up in prayer. My best friend's daughter was killed in an auto accident in Dec. She was 20. My sons were close friends with her ... they have had a hard time with it, as have we all. We've seen God strengthen them as only He can & I know He will do the same for your family.

Many blessings...

Oh Tesha, what a horrible tragedy. I can't even begin to understand the things that happen in this world. I am so sorry to you and your family. What a beautiful doll baby. Thinking of you all.

I am so incredibly sorry to hear this sad news. My heart breaks for you, your family and the baby girl who will never get to know her mommy and the family of the man that was just trying to help. It is just so sad, I will keep you all in my prayers.

Tesha, I am SO sorry and heartbroken for this devastating loss (both losses) in your family. Your cousin was so beautiful and so is her daughter. I am so sad for that baby girl. I went to college in Tennessee and hung out in Knoxville all the time.
