    Yesterday, about 5:30pm two boys, one was 16 and one was 17 were wading around out in a lake when suddenly something went wrong. A man heard them yelling for help and went and got his boat, but by the time he got around to them they were gone. Noone knows what happened. I think they were out on a sandbar and went walking out into the lake to see how far they could get and the sandbar suddenly dropped from 4 feet to 22 ft. They could both swim, so maybe they got tangled in something. Anyway, they have been dragging the area for a day and a half and still have not found them. Tomorrow morn. a team of divers are supposed to come out and hopefully they will find them. The families are going through a real difficult time right now and need prayers. They are just sitting on the banks edge in agony and are just waiting. One of the boys is a cousin to me. Please pray for both families and that they will recover the two missing boys. Thanks a lot.

    What a terrible tragedy. I'm not sure what else to say, but I will definitely pray for both families.

    our prayers go out to this family that God will comfort them in their sorrow, and hold them in his divine hands.
    God bless

    Thanks to all of you who prayed for the recovery of the boys bodies that both drowned. They were both found by divers this morn. Please continue to remember the families of both boys in your prayers as things are really difficult right now.

    What a terrible tragedy, and how humbling for all of us to see how quickly life can end. I send prayers for the families and friends, and also for people who will learn from this I pray. Such sadness to lose not one but two sons, I truly can't imagine. Prayers for all.
