Condolences, April 18, 2007

Dear Virginia Tech, Students, Staff, Families and Friends: 
God sent us angels to love and cherish and protect them from harm and gave them their wings back on 4-16-2007 to fly back to him.  No matter how hard we try to protect them..something like this happens and then we lose the ones we love.
Cherish the memories of their first smile, first words, their first little steps.or how they needed a shoulder to cry on when the guy or girl broke their heart and they needed you.  Our Children and Parents are all that we have and God has a plan for all of us.
Remember our love and Prayers go out to each and everyone.
which art in heaven,hallowed be Thy name.
They kingdom come.  Thy will be done
in earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this
day our daily bread.  And FORGIVE us our
debts as we FORGIVE our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil:  Fore Thine is the
kingdom, and the power, and the glory

everyone and don’t lose faith.

love and prayers
The Robertson’s family and The Herrit family

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience by which you really stop to look fear in the face.  You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.’” Eleanor Roosevelt

Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  Romans 5:3-4

My husband and I are both alumni of VT, and my sister is a current student.  We have always felt at home in Blacksburg, and that will not change.  The VT community has always been one of strength and achievement, and that will not change.  We had strength as a community when times were good, and now that times are bad, think of the support we will be able to offer to each other.  Lift each other up, focus on the positive, and keep the Hokie pride!

Just 3 short months ago I lost my beautiful 32 year old son to a senseless hunting accident so the pain of losing a child is so very fresh. My heart goes out to everyone at VaTech, especially the parents who have lost their beloved children and the students who have lost their cherished friends. God has been my strength over these terrible weeks since my loss and I do pray that you all find some peace in God’s loving care. Know that you are all being held up in prayer. God Bless you all. ~ PFS
