An update

Dear friends
Thank you all so much for all your beautiful comments and your prayers for the young man that went missing…..
Today….. they found him……
Under the dock.. in the cold ocean…


They had searched there before.. but I guess due to underwater streams he has been moving around a little.. but luckily he “came back” and they found him….


I do say “luckily”… because most of us thought by now he had passed… and for the sake of his family, I am glad they found him, so that they now know where he is. It would just be heartbreaking if they never found him.. and the family never got an answer as to what had really happened.


And I think I ow you an explanation… some of you might have misunderstood me…


I don’t know this young man…. but I do have friends that do….
I didn’t help look for him… but I have several friends that did…


But it being such a small place.. we all know someone that knows someone.. if you can understand… so in the end.. events like this affects us all… and it’s just so sad!!


Anyway.. I am proud to have such caring online friends like you!!! Thanks alot everybody!!! It meant the world to me to get all those heartfelt comments from you!! myspace graphic comments

Oh, Dear Monica! Praise God, the young man was found and is alive! That is truly a miracle! I'm sure his family will never know about us tiny bloggers praying for them and their son.
Be a sweetie,

Oh Monica, as tragic as it is, I am so glad that they found this young man. Now at least the family can have some closure and move on.
I ache for your entire community.
Do they have any idea what happened?

I am so sorry for this young man and his family. God works in strange ways that we don't understand sometimes but HE has HIS reasons for everything.

My heart breaks for this family~ I always believed the unknown is worse than knowing what happened....but it's the same pain. Death hurts. Will keep your community in my prayers.

Big hugs~ J.

P.S. I wish you lived in Texas, too. :)

Thanks for sending the update Monica. It's VERY sad that he was found dead but I agree with LEAST he was FOUND. That would be HORRIBLE for the family if he was always missing.

Also thank you for the sweet comments about my Change Post. It's a VERY small chance that we would win the business and NEED to send someone to London. However, the idea got me thinking and wondering. I'll definitely keep everyone posted. IF I do get the opportunity to live closer to you, we will definitely need to meet!

Dear Monica
I'm just now finding out about this tragedy. So very sad. We live in a small town and know what you mean, when you talk of everyone knowing everyone else and the connections when something tragic like this happens.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family for this tragic loss.

Chandy sa...

You are very welcome Monica! I, too, am glad that the family can now have some closure for their son. It is a tragedy... We prayed that his family would be comforted over their loss to ease the overwhelming feeling of grief...

Hugs, Chandy

It's very sad that a young man's life was lost but I'm glad that he was found so that his family can put him to rest. Like you said, it would be so much harder to not know what happened.

Justine/Justiney/Tiney sa...

It's such a horrible story, but you're right to be glad his body was found so his family can have some closure. Do they think he fell in, or was pushed?

Justine :o )
