Very sad news

Submitted by George on 01/09/2004. ( )

I got a very sad email from my brother in arms, Dave Toms tonight. He sadly told me that his 15 year old daughter had lost her lifelong valiant fight with Battens disease. He and his family are taking her to Texas for her final rest. Dave's fought his own battles here while living in that debilitating world of a loved ones agony. He's some kind of guy, but at times like these, he needs our prayers. Please include him and his family in yours tonight.

I saw you as quite a man by your serving your country at a time when things were uncertain. I also knew of your families situation, even though we seldom spoke of it. I am so sad to hear of your families loss at this time. But Im so glad you did have the time with her that you all shared. God does bless you even if it seems for a moment that he hasnt. You know that you can call if you need anything, friend.

George, thank you for letting Dave's "other" family know.

Jehova Shammah

Jehova Shamma, means the lord is there. At times like these you may not feel like He is there but He is. He was there with your daughter and now your daughter is there with Him. Take comfort in knowing that. It is a wonderful thing to see this "family" reach out with comfort and prayers to a brother who is going through so much pain. Hang on to all the memories and know that she is waiting for you and that you will see her again and she will say to you, I've been waiting for you and you will have a wonderful reunion and you will spend eternity together worshiping and praising our God. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family Dave.

May God comfort and bless you in this time of loss.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you
