Lord, have mercy.  How sad.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I suppose they were both too weak to crawl?

Oh my God!  Those poor, poor people!

How heartbreaking for them both.

Lord please grant the husband strength to go on and grant her eternal rest among Your saints.

I can't stop crying after reading this.

Oh!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

No, I did Hecma. One person relies on a wheelchair, while the other used a walker.

When they both fell over outside the house, I suppose that not either one was strong enough, not only to get back up, but to crawl back either?
