Yesterday, we received news that a young man from our hometown had been killed in Afghanastan. He was on his 4th tour and engaged to be married this fall. This shocked us and broke our hearts. Some of the most precious things that God give to us are our families, friends and our memories. We thank God for the memories that he gives us when we no longer can hold the hand of our loved ones.
I hope that we can all show love to those we hold dear and strive each day to take more time with them.
