Sad News

Yesterday I went to school to pick up my kiddos. I came home to a phone call from my sister with some sad news. A family friend of ours was killed Sunday in a Farm accident. Not sure of the details but that really doesn't matter. It happened shortly after we talked when they were going to have Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday. My brother who is a fireman and EMT went to the accident. It was a lot anyway but more so when you know the person. Sometimes I don't see how he does it but after it's over it usually takes it hard. It's a gift to be able to handle that and I'm so blessed that he can do it with God's help.

This is my status on Facebook today

Was once told this life is like a rose garden , God seems to pick the best ones. Today that feels true. ~ RIP Zach ~ Praying for the Kerr Family.

Zach was 26 yrs old and just always has a smile to offer. He was a father and husband. A very good friend and the best thing is he knew the Lord. It doesn't make this any easier for the family and friends but Zach would want us all to be happy and no tears. He will be missed but one day we will meet again.

So my heart is heavy but I'm praying for this family and friends. His brother George is in the service in Afganistan. He is on his way home , please keep this family in your prayers. Remembering God is Good throughout any storm.

This is so sad. I will pray for the family...and for you Caroline! You have gone through a lot recently. Life is hard sometimes...but God is able to bring us through everything when we place our faith and trust in him.

Love you,
