It has been 6.5 years since that horrible day. My daughter was one of the 20 students in a class across the hall from your office, one of those terrified kids you shepherded into your office, locking them in, trying to keep them safe, while you yourself left to try to help the other students and teachers under attack on the floor below you. It was from your office that my daughter called me that morning, saying, "Mom, there's shooting on the floor below...we're locked in an office...I...

I am not a friend of the family but i too have experiened the death of a lovd one. Through my studies of the Bible i have learned that there will be a time when we will see our dead loved ones again. There will also be "no more death, sickness, or pain anymore". I hope that this information will comfort you like it has comforted me an dmy family.

Your name was mentioned today on Channel 13 news/Toledo. How you were a researcher at VT and a graduate of St Francis but your name was also mentioned because you were one of the "fallen" 1 year ago today. I hope your wife and children can feel your presence every day and know that you are looking over them from Heaven!

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I would like to share with you scriptures that gives me hope about loved ones who have died. I encourage you to look up Revelation 21:3,4, John 5:28,29, Psalm 22:24, 1Peter 5:7. I hope you find comfort in these scriptures as I have.
