Sad Day

Postby ellen » Sat Sep 12, 2009 6:33 am

A great young man lost his life to a road side bomb in Iraq this week. He was a class mate to my oldest son. Hearts ache for his family and for our community. Enjoy the wonders of heaven Joseph...

Our thoughts and prayers for the family and friends during this sad time.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Ellen, prayers from Rosie and myself also. I lost a couple friends many years ago during the Viet Nam era so I have somewhat of an idea what your son is going through. It is always tragic to lose someone, but it always seems a little harder when it is under these conditions. Joseph died to protect us all and that is something no one will ever forget. May the good Lord look after him and those he left behind.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Ellen,

This is terribly sad news. Your son's classmate did not die in vain. Our world is a better place because of his commitment to help make it better in the face of such evil. Our prayers are with him and his family, and may God bless him and keep him always.

I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I am sure his family and friends are sad yet proud all at the same time.
