Having just returned from Atlanta on a six hour flight from New York City, and before that a small plane from Dulles to New York, after traveling from Atlanta to Dulles, this kind of news that appeared in this blogger’s email box is really haunting:
Oklahoma State University women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant women’s basketball coach Miranda Serna have been killed in a plane crash in Arkansas, the university confirmed Friday.
Two others — including the pilot — were also killed in Thursday night’s crash. Those victims were not affiliated with the university, and there were no survivors.
Budke and Serna were on a recruiting trip, the university said in a statement.
It’s a reminder that you never know when it’s your time to pass on. Live every day of life as if you enjoy it, because you can’t (as far as it’s officially known) go back again.
God bless Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna.
