I was shocked when I read this news from the papers this morning. I immediately texted the hubby to let him know about the news. Steven Curtis Chapman has blessed us a great deal with his songs. I could only imagine the hurt he and the rest of his family is going through at this time of their lives.

Apparently, one of his teenage sons was driving their SUV and accidentally ran over the five year old girl. Just a few hours before the accident, the whole family was in celebration for the eldest daughter just got engaged. May the Lord comfort their family in this time of grief.

Here's a blog post by Chapman's manager, Jim Houser, in memory of Maria Sue.
