Chopper down in Ca.

I don't know how far our news covers but last Wed, a Sherrif's chopper went down about 15 minutes away from me. On board was a long time friend's grandson. Two were killed and one is in bad shape, but alive. Kevin was only 29 years old.
Say a Prayer for his family, Lukie was very close to Kevin.

They expect no less than 7,000 to attend the services. Many streets will be closed after the services for the motercade to the reception.

The Officer that survived is in a medical induced coma because of excessieve swelling of the brain. He needs Prayers to get him and his family through this.

Dove,

I have been following the story all week. What a sad and tragic thing to happen. I have flown in helicopters a few times a work. It is one of those things that is exciting and scary at the same time. I will be thinking of the officers, their family and friends during this time.
