PLEASE KEEP US IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS

It is with a heavy heart that I take a brief minute to type these terrible, horrific words. Yesterday morning Bill and Ruth, my boys' grandparents were out taking their morning walk. They walked the same route in their small neighborhood everyday, but yesterday would be their last. They were hit and killed. The car left the scene. There are three children and six grandchildren and many, many friends left behind to grieve this unexpected tragedy. My boys are all having an extremely difficult time. Please keep us in your thoughts and I will keep everyone posted on the latest information. It really does help to talk about it. Thank you all for being there for me.
Please click here to see a wonderful touching video story that one of the local station did.

Hello Sondra, What a tragic accident. I watched the video and it was a very sweet one. My heart goes out to your boys and all the loved ones of this wonderful couple. They are together in heaven. Your family will be in my prayers. At least they caught the guilty one. How could someone just drive away? We should pray for her too.
Love, Ann

Oh Sondra, this is so shocking and so terribly sad. I am so sorry. What happened? How could somebody run over to sweet people and leave the scene. I sure hope they can find out who did this. It is just terrible. I pray that the Lord will comfort your family and you will feel His love and peace. I will continue to lift all of you up in prayer.

God bless.....
Sharon

Oh Sondra. This is terrible. I have gotten so far behind in blog reading and I was trying to get caught up this morning. I am sorry that i didn't hear this as soon as you posted it.

I will keep your sweet family in my prayers. What an awful thing to happen to your family. I am going to read the above post now to get the update.

Again, I am so sorry.

I'm so sorry-wonderful they went together, sad how they went and who they left behind. Blessings to you and your family.

Oh, my. I haven't checked you site in so long, I've been dealing with some of my own grief (I'll try to e-mail you about it, I might get around to blogging it on Wednesday...) and I just haven't been checking blogs.

I'm sure even a month later that the boys and everyone are still in the process of healing. I know it's a rough journey, especially when it's something so senseless!

Please know I've added your family to my prayer list now. I will also try hard to make sure I keep more current so I continue to know how to pray for you and yours.

Prayerfully,
Crystal
