90-year-old assault victim Bob Strait released from hospital
KJRH ^ | 03/21/2012

The surviving victim from last weeks brutal home invasion and beating is out of the hospital.

90-year-old Bob Strait is home with family members.

He suffered serious injuries during the incident, but his wife Nancy died.

Family members say Bob Strait is recovering physically, but emotionally his wounds are deep and he says he never wants to go back to the home he and his wife shared for more than 40 years.

"When I was holding his hand you could tell he was shaking on the inside, he was scared and when we asked him yesterday if he was ready to go home, he thought he was going home," said Strait's daughter, Lanora.

The couple was ambushed and robbed last week in their north Tulsa home.

Police have one suspect in custody, 21 year old Tyrone Woodfork, he's facing 1st degree murder charges among others.

The result of the attack left Bob Strait with a broken jaw, internal bleeding and bb gun wounds. His wife Nancy didn't survive her injuries.

"After he found out she was gone, we brought her in to him, and turned her to where he couldn't see her bad side and he held her hand for quite awhile and all he could say was I loved that old woman, I loved that old woman for so long," said Lanora.

The couple had been married for more than 65 years and Lanora doesn't know if her dad will be able to survive much longer without his soul mate.

"Now that she's gone, I don't know, I don't expect much, I hope for it but I don't expect it," said Lanora.

At this point police are still investigating, they say there could be more suspects still on the loose.

Family members are hopeful they will be caught, so something like this doesn't happen to anyone else.

"No not like this, no one should take your parents away or anybody away from you and one thing I've learned you want to let the people that you love, know that you love them, because you don't know if you are going to see them again tomorrow," said Lanora.

The memorial service for Nancy strait will be Friday at 12:30 at Floral Haven. There will be a viewing Thursday at noon.

Anyone with information about other possible suspects in this case can call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.

Yes, I know that I put this little local story in Headline Front Page News. And it may well get bumped to chat. But with the Nation focusing on the Trayvon Martin shooting; with students skipping school; with racers like Al Sharpton showing up; and even Barack Obama saying that if he had a son - he'd look like Trayvon Martin; and so more media frenzy, and more....

I thought I'd post this article that the main stream media is ignoring.

 
 
This 19 year old boy - (He does look like Obama's son, huh?) did the killing.

Where are the rallies? Where is the protest? Where is President Obama speaking out about the black on white crimes that are committed?

And lets not overlook the young white boy in Kansas City that was chased down by a black mob and set on fire recently.

I hope Old Purple Lips suffers a lot in his remaining miserable life. The only regret he has is that he got caught. What are the lives of two white people to this bag of excrement?

Still the left continues on with the racist hysteria campaign, and worse a whole breed of conservatives just sit there and grin while such evil is perped.

Fresh meat for the boys at BIG MAC or Stringtown! If he is scentenced to death maybe the officials won’t forget to execute him like they did a murderer about 30 years ago.

FYI one of the comments at the story has it that this alleged perp is a repartations activist.

The most excruciating method of execution imaginable is not nearly enough for that sub-human creature.

This is such a heartbreaking story that it made me cry. I cannot imagine what this poor man went through and now has to face. It is one thing to lose your spouse to disease but to lose one so viciously and violently... Prayers for this man.

Those grinning jackals may belong to some superficially similar group (Republicans for example).

But they AREN’T conservatives. By definition.

This story has this to say....
 
 

Their daughters Lanora and Andra told Tulsa World that the couple were loving and generous people who would do anything for anyone.

'Dad never talked, and Mama never quit talking,' Lanora said.

'Whatever she did, it came from the heart,' Andra added.

The pair could be found sitting on their porch singing and playing the guitar during warmer summer evenings.

Mr Strait, who had worked for the oil derrick supply company Lee C. Moore before retirement, enjoyed woodwork while his wife loved making quilts and baking.


And while it was not George Straight but Alan Jackson who sang 'Livin on Love', the lyrics are appropriate...

 
Two old people without a thing
Children gone but still they sing
Side by side in that front porch swing
Livin on love
He cant see anymore
And she can barely sweep the floor
Hand in hand they'll walk through that door
Just livin on love

One day there will be a permanent separation of those who buy into the survival of the fittest by any means including murder, and being all the scum bag you can be, with those who seek goodness and love as in the teachings of Christ...
The two cannot survive together, let the great wine press turn to its conclusion Lord!!!
