Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight.

I belong to a mommy message board. It consists of about 100 women, scattered across the country. Most of us met while planning our weddings on The Knot. We have several get togethers throughout the year and my friends that came to visit last weekend, are all a part of this board.

We received some horrible news today. One of our friends lost her husband. He worked with heavy machinery and there was a horrible accident. I never met him but I know he was a great husband & father. He leaves behind his wife, Andrea and two young children, Jacob & Sydney. I know that our little community will stand by her side and help her through this. Please keep her family in your prayers & thoughts.

ROW - Matthew R. Suddenly, November 15, 2008, beloved husband of Andrea R. (nee Gordon) Row; loving father of Jacob W. and Sydney R. Row; dearest son of Roy and Virginia Row; dear brother of Gregory, Jeffrey, Christopher (Wendy) Row; survived by many nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday at 11 AM at the KENNETH HOWE FUNERAL HOME, 64 Maple St., East Aurora. A reception to follow at Wales Center Fire Hall. Flowers gratefully declined. Memorials to Wales Center Fire Dept., 12300 Big Tree Rd., Wales Center 14169.

I am so thankful for being able to make the trip to be with her. There are 9 of us that are going to be there, to hug her and help her through this.

This breaks my heart. This also makes me thankful for the internet that a geoup of women came come together and support each other, even thought they live miles apart.

my prayers are with Andrea and her children
