Thoughts and Prayers

I'm not sure how many of you heard of this story. The Utah man who died after being stuck in a cave? Well, that man was my friend's husband. I would just please ask everyone to keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I ache so much for her.....she loved him so much. They had this type of love that you could just imagine them dancing the jig together at their 50th wedding anniversary. It was classic and timeless....she said she was lucky to have him, he was truly the love of her life. They have a little girl and another baby that is due in June. She is such a strong person, but this is simply tragic. Why does this always seem to happen to the best of people?

I have some more thoughts on this I will share a bit later, but for now....this post is about the death of a wonderful, godly man, a grieving wife and children who will never really know their father.

Oh no. I heard of this. How terrible. I'm so sorry for his family's loss. He sounded like a wonderful man.

I did hear of this, I followed it on the news daily and prayed he'd be okay. I was driving in my car when I heard the announcement that he didn't make it. I cried right then and there. I went online and read the story of all the efforts search and rescue crews went to to try to save him. I'm so heartbroken for his family and for him. What he must have gone through - I can't even imagine. I pray they find peace somehow - someday in all this.
