Sago Mine Disaster- Update
There is more about the funerals in West Virginia in this report from PTR. One thing that caught my eye was this statemnet about Jack Weaver whom I posted about here. A friend had this to say about the fallen miner
Dennis Daugherty, Weaver's friend and a fellow member of Corley United Methodist Church in Philippi, said the lesson to be learned from Weaver's life is, "When you leave for work in the morning, you should kiss your wife, kiss your husband, hug your kids and tell everyone you love that you love them. We live day to day. We don't know if today is our last day."
I agree. I have always did just that as I leave the comfort of home and family. This is one of the better articles about the miners that I have read. I encourage you to read it also. It seems that many of the miners were Christians. I am reminded of what my Pap-paw told me after the death of my uncle. "To a Christian, death is a beautiful thing. It is what we live to achieve. Our bodies are mans, but our souls belong to God. While death is horrible to the family and friends, we should rejoice that a man has met his Lord and is at the throne of God." I pray these families find comfort.
