Sad News

Our hearts have been heavy the past few days. Early on Saturday, June 20th, Matt's aunt and uncle, Kathy and Kent Wood, were involved in a very serious car accident. Kent remains in the hospital recuperating from serious injury. Sadly, he lost his dear wife Kathy in the accident. We cannot begin to comprehend the overwhelming sadness and emotion that must be felt by their children and other family members.

It is impossible to understand why things like this happen, how fragile life is, and how one instant can permanently alter life. I can only be indescribably grateful for our faith, and the knowledge we have of eternal families. Our continued thoughts and prayers are with this beautiful family at this impossibly difficult time.

I'm a friend of Matt's (his Prom date), and I have known the Woods since I was a kid. Pres. Wood was my dentist, and I did several musical productions under Kathy. They are such amazing people, and I was so sad to hear of this tragic accident. Our prayers have been, and will continue to be with all of the Wood family.

our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We have been mourning with you (without even knowing it) since this sweet couple is friends of my aunt and uncle in folsom as well as their stake president. We are keeping them in our prayers. We know your family will be watched over during this difficult time.
