I got a phone call the other day from mom and she was crying. She was telling me about a Ukrainian couple that had just died in a car accident. I did know them. They came to my house. We had dinner with them. Talked and laughed. I could understand about every third word. Played the wii and couldn't stop laughing. I remember thinking that the wii board had a weight limit on it. I didn't care. His name was Illusha and might have been the biggest guy I had seen in my life. His wife's name was Diana. She was a little, little woman. So you can imagine what they looked like together. Beautiful, beautiful husband and wife.
Their baby girl, Ester, survived the accident along with her Aunt That broke my heart in a million pieces. Why did God take them both and leave Ester? I got to thinking about my Lizzy. There is something that I have prayed for all these years and what I'm about to say is as honest as a person can get. For some, it may come off sounding selfish. Some may be hurt I pray for this. I pray that Lizzy and I go to Heaven at the same time. This may be part of my being so connected to Lizzy and wanting to protect her from ever being alone. I know she won't be alone in Heaven but I want to place her hand in the hand of Jesus. I know I have two other children that are strong and will navigate though life with no problems. Yea, I guess it's selfish for me to want this. I know. God knows the desires of my heart. I tell you their names so you can pray for them.
Two warriors for Christ returned home on August 31, 2011. They will be missed because they were loved. Illusha and Diana. Please locate the music playing at the bottom of your screen and pause it. The video has music.
Please contact me if you would like information on how to give to a memorial fund that has been set up for their daughter, Ester.
