Fallen Hero

Please pray for this family.  This brave man sacrificed his life yesterday for our country.  We should never take for granted our nation, our freedom, our friends or our families.   It was an honor and a privilege to know him and to attend church and Sunday school with this family. Tim will definitely miss playing softball with him. 

My heart hurts for this sweet, young widow.  She will now raise their beautiful son without his Daddy.  It will be up to her to tell their little 9-month old guy about his godly, dedicated, faithful, brave father.   

They were the cutest little family and the two of them were very much in love with one another. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.  Anyway, thank you all for praying.

God bless you.


  1. We are friends with some people who attended your church (who actually directed us to this blog) and I heard about this today. We ourselves are a military family and it makes my heart hurt when I hear about these things.
    My thoughts and prayers go to them during this hard time.
    I dont know if anyone would be interested in the book but there is one called "Final Salute' that was done a few years back by a photographer at Rocky Mtn News. It tells many stories about the death notifications that the military has to do and the stories behind some of those soldiers and the loved ones they left behind.
    My thoughts and prayers are with your family and this one. <3

  2. My heart and prayers go out to this young mother and her baby. May the Lord give her comfort as only He can.
