Surfer Andy Irons 1978-2010
Read the story of his amazing life and untimely death here.
Andy was much beloved and respected in his home of Hawaii and across the world. A man who was very human in spite of being wildly popular.
When I read the article posted above, I was filled with a sense of sorrow and an immense sense of awe for the sacredness and gift of life.
Why things happen the way they do may not be known in this life.
All we do know is that God makes sense of our confusion and accompanies us in our deepest sorrows and mysteries.
My prayers go out to his family, especially his wife, due to give birth to their first child next month.
May he rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him.
God bless you, Andy.
