Please Pray

I've really slipped on updating this thing, so I don't even know if anyone reads this anymore.

We found out Saturday night that one of Kent's best friends, Darryn Andrews, was killed in action in Afghanistan. He and his wife Julie have a son Daylan who just celebrated his 2nd birthday yesterday. Julie is also pregnant with their little girl due in December. Darryn's only surviving sibling is his twin brother Jarrett, as their parents also lost Darryn and Jarrett's older sister years ago. Truly heartbreaking. It literally makes my heart hurt to think about what the Andrews family is going through.

Kent has a very close group of friends from Cameron and I know he is struggling with the loss. We're heading to Cameron on Thursday and the service will be Saturday afternoon. Please pray for Darryn's family as well as all of his friends who are struggling with this loss, and the soldiers who are still over there fighting for our freedom.
Darryn, Julie, and Daylan

All the guys- Jarrett, James, Kent, Ryan, and Darryn

Darryn & Kent

I'm still reading. I am so sorry to hear about this. What a true American hero.

Praying for your safe travels and for Darryn's family during this time.

I just stumbled across you're blog today. The schnauzer caught my attention first b/c I have one of those precious puppies too! But my heart dropped when I saw the first photo post. I'm at a loss for words but please THANK his wife and children! Darryn is a HERO for his commitment to OUR Country & Freedom! I honor and respect him even though I didn't know him. I am sorry for you and your friends loss but I will lift all of you up in prayer!
