Mike Wetzel is Gone

1108612_1280x720Marilyn Kriss   my friend, posted  this on FB.  It is a message from her sister-in-law who lives near San Bernardino, California where the terrorist attack occurred on Friday.  Mike Wetzel  was killed.  You can read about the kind of man he was in the community.  And oh yes, he was the father of six children.  This is Mike with his family. 

Yesterday at 7:13am ·

My sister-in-law sent this email last night. This family and many others need our prayers.

Mike Wetzel, 37, of Lake Arrowhead , was murdered yesterday during the massacre. He was a volunteer parent at Lake Arrowhead Elementary for many years, and frequently brought his pre-school daughter with him. I used to ask him if his daughter was his ‘assistant’. She started Kindergarten this past September. His youngest is 9 months old. Six children and a widow are now without him.

Please remember his family and the families of all the victims in your prayers.  And there is a tiny, 6 month old baby girl who is now an orphan because of the choice her parents made  to  attack America and Americans.

May God help us all !

    Very Sad indeed. I live about 30 miles away. This was too close to home.
