Video blog

If you're interested, you can read about the girl that I talk about in the first video blog. Go to this website. On the right hand side click on Han*nah Maass. There is a video at the end of the obituary. Like I said, I don't know this family, but I think they could use all of our prayers.

Yes, Kerrie, Middle School, 6th grade teacher. Three days into my child's school year and one of her teachers lost their daughter! She was 18, to start @ SDSU on Aug. 27th, She passed away the 26th. Her (their) son was 16, passed away in Dec. of 2002. I encourage your blogger friends to support this family in prayer, even though you don't know them. THANK YOU!

Oh my, my prayers are with that family. How very sad to lose 2 of your children to that and so close together. I watched the video and she was a very pretty girl, so young.

I saw the obituary in our local paper but didn't know what had happened to her. Thank you for sharing their story, my prayers are with them, I can't imagine their loss.
Your "sawwwweeeeettttt" story made me chuckle because after Hunter's first day of Kindergarten he responded to his dad like this, "Give me a break Dad, you're freakin' me out!" HUH??? Robb looked at me and said, "are you sure you don't want to homeschool honey?"

I feel so bad for this family. I am not sure how a parent ever gets over the loss of a child, let alone 2!! I hope that they stay strong and rely on each other and God for some strength and support.

I pray that I never have to be in that situation! Just sad!

How very sad for that family... I just had a 911 call where a 15 year old boy passed away of a heart defect and he was the couple's only son.

then the next day I was watching the news about this family that just lost their 2nd son in Iraq. SO SO sad.

I can not imagine losing one, let alone anymore than that. I don't know if I could survive.

I hate to tell you Ker, but the whole school learning experience just keeps getting better. I have heard some very interesting things over the years.

My heart goes to the family. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers. She looked like she was a wonderful person, you could tell by the glitter in her eye. I hope that God will wrap his arms around them during this trying, trying time!

sahh-wheett....are you seriously questioning that one? coming from a mom with catch phrases like, "holy cat smokes"? :0) you must be trippin' lady!

i don't think that you have anything to worry about- you are a great mom and he'll only push it for a while. he's been taught well.

Sweeeeet isn't that bad at all. Seriously! That's nothing compared to what he COULD have come home and said. And I'm sure you get the picture where I'm going....

I only get time to check this once a week at most, so not sure if you will even read this, but Hannah was loved by everybody here in Milbank. SHe was a girl you couldn't help but love. She was in guards with Devon and I guess had a hard time passing her PTs at AIT training this summer so only if they could have prevented it. THe hardest part is they do not know what happened to Justin nor Hannah so they can't do anything to protect their other daughter or her two children. Justin died when Jordan was in 6th grade and had Brenda as a teacher. I have told everyone I know that if something happens to my children I am somehow taking them home with me. I couldn't bury them. A young girl that we know was killed in a car accident last fall and the mom went to the cemetary every night to burn candles to keep her warm. That is what I couldn't deal with.
