Our hearts are broken this day as we say good-bye to our dear brother-in-law Kurt. He passed away from the injuries sustained in the London terrorist attack yesterday. We love him so much and will never forget him. My sister, Melissa, sustained a broken leg, broken rib and a cut to her head. We are grateful that she will recover. Our hearts ache for her and their children in losing their loving companion and father. Please continue to pray for our family. Thank you.
“Our heartfelt prayers are with all those affected by today’s tragic attacks in Westminster. We pray that the power of God will bring comfort, healing and peace. May the spirit of goodwill bless the people of the United Kingdom.”
