I am not sure if there are more drownings this year or if more are actually being reported. In any case, it is truly heartbreaking to see. A close friend drowned at a group gathering we were attending many years ago when I was a teenager, and I pray for the families of those lost and those who witnessed the tragedy. My heart still aches….

My thoughts are with the family and friends and may they find strength in this time.

It is unfortunate reminder that even in a narrow body of water things like that will happen. Very sad.
