Thank you . . .

I wanted to thank all of you near and far who have been praying with us.

I can hardly tap the keys as I type this, but Ty Jr. passed away early this morning.

Please pray for the family as they begin to process this sudden pain and pray for us as we try to support this family over the coming weeks and months.

If you are near Longview, TX, this was the crash you may have seen on the news on I-30.  Ty bravely jumped out of his truck to check on the people in the car in front of him and was struck while walking back to his own. This is a testament to how this boy was raised and to the type of people the Osman's are.  My heart is so heavy.
Pin It!

I live in the UK and am not a Christian. Because I love your blog Jenni I saw this sad story. Please tell Ty's family that a lady in the UK with a young family of her own is thinking of them.

Oh, Jenni, I'm so sorry for the loss of this young man. When I logged on to facebook this morning I saw this post from a friend: "You lived right because, well, you lived. And what a wonderful job you did, sir. I love you, Ty." I was surprised when I realized it was the same Ty. My friend went to school with him at Harding. Praying for Ty's family and friends.

Oh Jenni, I am deeply touched by this sad news. I am so sorry that this happened to such a wonderful family as you described. I have a 19-year-old as well as a 17-year-old and cannot imagine the pain I would be feeling if it had happened to my family. I am a devoted follower of Christ and want you to know that I will be praying for the Ty's and your families as you all deal with this tragedy.

Someone once told me that our prayers were not unanswered when we had prayed for healing for someone that had died anyway. Our prayers WERE answered but the person we had prayed for to be healed was in heaven, HAD been healed, but just wasn't with us anymore. I really thought about that and it has helped me in times like these. Am so sorry that this has happened to such a nice young man.
