Pray for the Todd familyPosted Tuesday, March 11, 2008, at 7:55 PM
Death comes at an hour and a time that is never known or pre-announced.
A rural Bloomfield family is grieving today after a tragic traffic accident Monday morning that claimed the life of 73-year-old Morris Todd and seriously injured his 66-year-old wife, Judy.
The Todd's were traveling about 7:20 a.m. Monday eastbound on State Road 54 -- east of Bloomfield -- when their car was hit head-on by a van driven by the couple''s daughter-in-law, 44-year-old Beth Todd.
Police say the collision was an unfortunate tragedy when Beth Todd apparently fell asleep while driving home after working a third shift at a Bloomington pharmaceutical company. She was not seriously hurt.
What an uncanny coincidence this accident turned out to be. What do you think are the chances of driving down the road -- falling asleep -- and then running into a car carrying your in-laws?
I can't even imagine the mental anguish this ironic accident has caused for the family members involved.
At this time the best thing all of us as a community can do is pray that this family finds the understanding of how such a tragedy can occur and we pray they receive strength to go on in wake of this devastating event.
May God grant them peace and comfort.
