Tragedy strikes

Our family (including the marching band family) has lost some friends to a tragedy. A house fire took their family between 11:30 and midnight on January 2, 2010. You will all be missed. Our prayers and thoughts for the family you left behind.

Oh, Elysabeth. Please accept and pass on my condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours, and the family (band and otherwise) that lost.

Thank you hon. The family is receiving family and friends tomorrow in our town at one of the local churches with the funeral Thursday afternoon. I found out today that the AFJROTC at the school will be pallbearers for the funeral and that the band group has purchased a wreath and I'm sure that the most of the student body and a good many of the teachers will be leaving early Thursday to attend the funeral. The mother knew a lot of people in several towns and the daughter was friendly with everyone too. I'm still in shock from this loss but eventually we will all mend although the family will never be forgotten. I'll miss Maxine asking me to take her somewhere to pay a bill or run an errand or being at the band competitions for support, even though Faith graduated last spring. Thanks for stopping by - E :)
