A sad loss

I will post later about our holidays - which have been fun and busy - but today, we just wanted to share the news that we lost a dear friend, Eugene on Christmas Day. He was only 41 years old. It was very unexpected and we are so sad we didn't get to say goodbye. Ben was just with him 2 days before at the Museum of Science with his brother (our pastor and dad of Ben's very good friend). We shared a special connection with him on many fronts, but we were so excited to introduce Levi to him, since he was part Korean. Just yesterday, I said to Steve - "I think Eugene would have love to have met Levi." When Levi comes home, we will remember Eugene with great fondness as we think about the bond he shares with our son. Meanwhile, we are praying for his family and friends who feel this big void, especially around the holidays.
