A Broken Heart, for a Best Friend RIP Todd

Today I got one of those messages that breaks your heart, my friend Caity lost her husband, the love of her life, and the father of her children. Shes only 26. I wanted to write this post earlier, I wanted to shout every word of love from the roof tops, send every hug I could so she could hear and feel all the love, but I couldnt. It was like writing it made it real. The thing is it is real, and now my best friend, the lady who has my back no matter what, is a widow at 26. She has two little girls, the eldest just started kindergarten, and she is pregnant.. How does that happen, how does God take a husband and a father away. I wasn’t going to write this post, I didnt want to make it real. Then my cousin messaged me and said I know its hard but tell her were praying and she’ll make it through. This is the same cousin who recently lost her husband to cancer and now is raising three girls herself. So Im writing this post, I’m writing to tell you Todd was and is an amazing man, and that he didn’t deserve to be struck by a car and killed while he was walking, but that he was. Im writing this post to ask you to pray for those little girls.

Caity is my best friend, shes also the one who took over TCF for me so I could visit my dad, who ran the blog when  I was so sick I don’t think I could have blogged. Shes the one that when I thought I couldnt help even one more kid encouraged me and helped me find ways to help 10 more. She is an angel, and now she has her own angel. Please pray for Caity, send her love, send her hope, send her good vibes just keep her in your hearts. Thank you.


If you wish to donate to help with bills, and funeral cost a few bloggers have gotten together to try to come up with money to help her, and we would appreciate it, any amount is welcome, if you do not, please send a pray up, I know she appreciates every prayer.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death (or through the darkest valley),
I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

    I am so very sorry. Please let me know if their is anything I can do. Caity has always been a ray of sunshine and I am so very sorry for her loss.

      You will be in my prayers, just know that God does not give anyone a cross that they cannot bear. I know that there will be pain, the pain of loss and hard to understand why God does this, but this is his will and she will be stronger for what plan that he does have for her. May God Bless you and your family. TAC

      Cathy, if you want to email me at admin@thechristmasfairyfb.com I can give you as much information as you need/I have, some of the stuff they are still figuring out, like the details of the death, cause there is an investigation in progress.

    She and her family are in my prayers. I may not know the family but I am still sorry that she has to deal with this. May God bless her and her family!

    I’m so sorry for such a horrible thing to happen to someone and a family who clearly doesn’t deserve it. I donated $3 to them because that’s all I’ve got right now. I take surveys online and that’s where that money came from. It will clearly go for a great cause and I know that they’ll be in my thoughts and prayers for a long time. I cannot imagine their feelings or what they’re going through but I’m happy there’s so many people who don’t even know them sending positive thoughts and prayers to them. I wish I could do more.
