This morning, the driver of the other vehicle was sentenced to three years in prison. You can read the article here: http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2011/sep/21/east-bremerton-man-sentenced-to-3-years-in-for/
I thought it was a beautiful way to begin that article: "When Enzo Williams' family takes a family photo, the Sesame Street character Elmo now stands in his place." Thank you, Josh Farley, for taking such great care with this important article today, to broadcast to the world that at last, our family can see justice served. Indeed, we DO have a family photo I will post here later today that shows all the grandchildren - and Elmo.
Yes, we still consider Enzo a part of the family. My sister has three children. My parents have 10 grandchildren. One of these just happens to live in another world now. We are still at a point in our grief where it would feel strange not to include Enzo in our family pictures, family count, etc.
It has been exactly 3 weeks shy of a year of the crash. Life is moving on, and slowly, bit by bit, we have too. The grief will probably always be there, popping up in unexpected flashes. But we have experienced - and anticipate - great healing as well. The God we serve is faithful. He cannot leave us or abandon us.
Please continue to pray for the driver's family too. Our family is satisfied to see justice served. However, we are mindful of the fact that this accident has devastated not just one family, but two. I am personally praying that Mr. Wright will be broken before His creator and surrender his soul to Jesus. I am praying that this three years in prison will change him, truly from the inside out - and that when he is released, his life will be used to make the world a better place. Please pray for his family, however the Lord puts on your heart.
Well, friends, a chapter has been closed in this story - but it can never bring Enzo back. We might have a wee bit of closure from seeing justice done, but it does not lessen the pain. We will keep updating this blog as necessary - and still would love to hear from you and any way that Enzo's short life and death has touched you. Email us InMemoryOfEnzo@gmail.com.
God's Blessings On You All Today!
