Prayer request, Hero fallen
SgtBob

Posted on 03/11/2012 6:23:14 AM PDT by SgtBob

My son-in-law, S/Sgt Brian Smith, 2nd Munition Squadron, Barksdale AFB, and my granddaughter, Ava Sermon was involved in an accident in Camden County, TN. They were on their way to visit his folks near Hendersonville. My daughter, Jessica, and grandson, Liam were to join him there today.

Thursday afternoon, after hydroplaning during a downpour, Brians' car was struck by a semi...we lost Brian. Little Ava is at Vanderbilt University Childrens Hospital.

Please pray for our families, and Baby Ava. Things are very hectic, so I must say thanks in advance. I'll update when possible.

I’m so very sorry. What a terrible tragedy. You will be in my thoughts and prayers and the little one. It just makes me want to cry for you.

Today was better for our Baby Ava. We pissed her off, and made her walk...recommended by occ/phys therapy folk. She was no happy camper, but the mission is being accomplished. Thank you, Freeper Family, your prayers are indeed heard by the ONLY COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF!

The grief on our families heart is so heavy....I know Brian now knows the Love of Jesus. My personal grief is hard to bear. I cannot imagine his parents hearts’... as mine is torn asunder. Pray hard for the Smith family. I’m a piker, compared to Job, Jessie, my daughter, and Brian, Sr., and Kinney Smith.

Nos prières à Dieu augmentent pour Brian, Jessica, l'enfant Ava et votre famille.
(Our Prayers to God increase for Brian, Jessica, baby Ava and your family.)

Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car c’est à Toi qu’appartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
