In Memoriam

Today is a Tough Day
It was exactly a year ago today that fbb's No 2 son died.

Neil Peter White, a 38-year-old white man, was shot by Los Angeles police on Thursday, July 9, near West 9th Street and South Sycamore Avenue in Mid-Wilshire, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

The circumstances are irrelevant and the sadness is, and always will be, palpable.

Nos 1 and 3 sons join Mr and Mrs fbb today to "scatter the ashes".

Out of respect for a young man whose life was flawed but whose death will always hurt, buses and trains are placed in abeyance for this one day.

The family thanks many, many people for their support and prayers over the last year.

Praise God for the strength that he brings in the deepest of depths!

"For we are certain that nothing can separate us from God's love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below - there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord."

Romans Chapter 8 verses 38 and 39.
