This morning on The Flakes show, we told the story about our trip to Mexico and how en route a family found out about the death of their beautiful, 23-year-old daughter.

It was one of the worst things I've experienced.

The emotion, the sadness, the shock.

It really hit home. As the father of four wonderful kids between the ages of 19 and 26, I could hardly handle it -- and I consider myself emotionally strong.

Folks, if you have any friction or conflict with family members or children in your own family, make the call and fix it. Life is so precious and those special people in yours could be gone in an instant.

You would feel much better knowing the wounds were healed.
