Friends...

I am sorry I didn't post this sooner but it has been very hard on our family.

A town 20 mins from me had a devastating experience on Christmas Eve. An ambush was setup by a convicted felon where he lit fires to lure firefighters. Then he sat in waiting and shot two of them dead and injured four more.

We knew Tomas -the youngest who was killed.

Please pray for them.

This is very cool. Hotels offering free rooms for firefighters coming from out of state for the funeral services.

That was sad news, when we heard of it a few days ago, and malicious.

We are thinking of the dead doing their duty.
