Our Hearts are Broken...

Just a quick post....
We just heard that my daughter 
Tory's
fiance
was killed over in Afghanistan.
He was coming home in a week,
and they were going to be married on 
Sept 19th.
Please pray for my little one,
for us,
and especially for Chris' family.
We will miss you so Christopher Scott.

  1. My dearest Tory and Johnalee and family..Goodness knows this is such a shock to all of you. It certainly saddens me to think what was to be such a joyful time is now replaced with your broken hearts. There are no words that will seem befitting at this time, except that if I could hold you in arms and let you cry I would....
    I am so sorry, always in love. madame samm

  60. “I am standing upon the seashore.
    A ship at my side spreads her white
    sails to the morning breeze and starts
    for the blue ocean.

    She is an object of beauty and strength.
    I stand and watch her until at length
    she hangs like a speck of white cloud
    just where the sea and sky come
    to mingle with each other.

    Then, someone at my side says;
    "There, she is gone!"

    "Gone where?"
    Gone from my sight. That is all.
    She is just as large in mast and hull
    and spar as she was when she left my side
    and she is just as able to bear her
    load of living freight to her destined port.
    Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

    And just at the moment when someone
    at my side says, "There, she is gone!"
    There are other eyes watching her coming,
    and other voices ready to take up the glad
    shout;
    "Here she comes!"
    And that is dying.”
    ~ Henry Van Dyke

    May the Lord's presence comfort you as only He can do.

  66. My heart goes out to you, I hope you all find the strength to get through this bad time. Words are so useless at times like these, but if what is written here comforts you in any way, it will let you know others are thinking of you. So many young men lost, so many broken hearts.
