A thought that I hope will be of some comfort to the parents of the lost children. At a memorial service for Skye and Courtney Buck, two beautiful and amazing young teachers who were killed in a car accident near Clearwater, BC, Canada on Sunday, December 9th, (http://www.kamloopsnews.ca/article/20121210/KAMLOOPS0101/121219998/-1/kamloops/highway-crash-claims-two-teachers ) there was a mention that perhaps the reason they were taken was so that they could be there in heaven to take care of the 20 children when they arrived on Friday. Our hearts go out to all of you.
