In Memory of Two Precious Young Lives

Saturday just as our youngest son was getting out of play practice at his school, he received a call that a fellow classmate and all around good friend was in an accident. He and his friends drove at once to the scene of the accident only to find that their dear friend Jon and his younger brother James Herbert were in a fatal accident and they did not survive.

Our community, close-knit like so many southern communities, is reeling in this tragic news. Although Randy and I are well acquainted with the stages of the grief journey these parents face, we cannot fathom the loss of two children at once. Dear friends we covet your prayers for this precious family, parents Doug and Sonnie Herbert and the boys’ sister Jessie.

Out of respect and as a memorial, this will be the only blog posting for this week. Thanks for understanding.
