During the Christmas season a few years ago, I was awakened in the middle of the night by a phone call from my oldest daughter. ‑She was crying. ‑I asked her what was wrong, and she said "Shari's gone." ‑‑"Gone where?" ‑I asked. ‑She had been in an auto accident and was killed. ‑She was just 21 and her birthday was December 26th - she would have been 22. ‑I tell this story because at this Christmas season, there are many who are suffering the loss of a loved one, a job, etc.
