Thanks, Gail, for letting me know about this thread. My hubby talked to the family earlier today and they are doing remarkably well ... today. It's all so surreal for them and our community. The family and faith community are so trusting in God's will for our lives and we know that each moment belongs to Him. We may not ever understand why these things happen, we have to leave them in God's hands because He does
Our neighbour, a police officer, was one on the scene and I think he's really going to struggle with this. He knew the Dad and had coffee with him over the past few months along with my hubby when they met on Wednesdays. The officer really struggles with children getting hurt in the first place and I think this totally threw him, he did not seem himself at all when we spoke this morning.
Very sad day here ... we trust in God's love and mercy always.
