"It is a small world after all"
A Disney attraction and song rings through the mind. Why? We'll go there another day. The life changing event on Washington St that I shared on Sunday? It is connected in a few ways.
Turns out one of the two vehicles in the accident was a motorcycle. Turns out the motorcycle rider was the son of a co-worker. Yes, how small does that get!
My own nephew had passed away in a similar motorcycle accident at a similar age several years ago. Kevin's passing hit the family hard. And here, now another family is going through the same thing.
