Please Pray for Us
Hello, this is Bailey. Just a short note, as we are all still in shock. I'm writing this Thursday evening, to post for Friday. Thanks to those of you who've been asking about us. We have lost a very dear friend today. Vesta Johnson, a wonderful saint. A woman in her seventies whom everyone loved. I can't give details. The police are still investigating. I can only say that this is beyond our understanding, in many ways.
Everyone in town is just so sad. And sickened. We'd just pulled out of such awful times. Were looking forward to spring. Now this.
We really do need your prayers. Especially Leslie.
I will check back with you Monday.
I heard the story on the local TV news last night. But the story's gotten weirder. I mean, a murder is bad enough, but all this other stuff... It's downright creepy.
I feel so sorry for all of you. I will be praying for you. Just glad to know everyone at Java Joint is safe.
If you haven't seen it on the news, you probably will soon. Last night we had another murder. The town is in chaos.
This is a nightmare. Please keep praying. None of us understands what's going on, it's all so bizarre and horrible.
Sorry to be the bearer of such bad news.
I am so sorry. You know I've been a regular reader of this blog and a commenter for months now. I feel like I know you all. Hope to hear from you on Monday.
So much has happened today. I can't discuss it all. I understand there will be a press conference this afternoon.
I'm praying this murderer is caught soon.
We're keeping all of you in our prayers.
My heart goes out to you all.
I ditto M.K.'s sentiment.
Just wonder what this will do to the proposed hotel...
I am so sorry for your losses. So very sorry.
I am very sorry to hear about the town's losses.
Leslie did well in her interviews, even though she seemed still very shaken.
Been thinking of you all a lot. Hope to hear from you on Monday.
