Sad News...

I recently became friends with a wonderful family from Alabama through blogging.
Their blog is called A Baker's Dozen Barnhouse News  
 and their life style and farm were so inspirational. I felt lucky to find them.
Last night, a tornado stormed through their area and left them without a home...and without a husband and father. 
He died trying to save his family.
 In the aftermath, Jordan, the oldest, was left trying to save his trapped sisters, brothers, and mother as the authorities were completely overwhelmed.
 Miraculously, the rest of the family is OK.
I wish there was something I could do, but I know that my prayers are all I can offer. 

Will you join me in keeping this family, as well as the many others affected by the horrible tornado in your prayers?

You can read about updates on the Lees  HERE.

How sad. Such a loss to that family. I hope the rest of the family will be okay. My brother lives in Huntsville
Alabama. They are okay.

Oh my... my heart is just breaking. I went over to their family's blog and the photo of the husband and wife is so precious. She will certainly treasure that.

My thoughts and prayers are with their family. Thanks for sharing.
