A Moment of Silence

Please be in prayers for a family friend. I just found out that her husband was killed in Afghanistan by a suicide bomber, I believe it was. His body should be back stateside today and they will have a service in his hometown, one at the base where he was stationed, and then he will be burried in Arlington. His name was David and his wife is Heather. They have 3 young children.

A little disappointed that Frozen Dolls were nowhere to be found. Oh well, Hikari was so excited about the soundtrack that she hasn't stopped singing!

Oh Wow! I am so sorry for her loss. I be sure to say an extra special prayer for her and her children.

Thank you so much. I'm not sure how she or her children are doing but I can't even imagine (I don't like to think about being on that end of it..:( ).

Thank you. Being a military spouse any death like that tugs at a heart string but when it is someone you know, whether you are close or not, it tugs even more.

 It's hard to think of our men and women that are giving their lives for our freedom. Two relatives just came back from Afganistan. My thoughts are with the family.

Oh how horrible! His family is in my prayers. My Husband's best friend just got back from Afghanistan yesterday. His girlfriend lost her husband in Iraq a few years ago so this kind of thing hits very close to home.

It is hard anytime but really hard when it hits so close.

Hug them tightly. They are both heroes.
