It is good to hear that the two of you are seeing hope in God, and you are continuing to move forward. It is also neat to hear that you placed a stone in France in the honor of your two sons. I know that Joel had a great time in France last summer, and I know that he would want the two of you to continue on with your work with God. I will pray for you, and you are right—there is a lot of support within the Christian family. May God guide you to where he wants you to be. All the best

Loads of love to you both, Ellie England March 13/2000

I just wanted to let you know that I’m praying for you and I want to share with you a passage that always helps me when I’m wondering about the future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 May the Lord comfort you and give you joy.

Love you, Annie <(((>< March 13/2000

Je suis profondément avec vous de tout coeur en Christ et continuez à faire revivre la mémoire de vos deux garçons. Ce site est vraiment très touchant.

Alison Dixon and I were looking at your web page. We keep praying for you and wonder how you are doing. We love you and think of you often.

A couple days ago I was really sad and missing Joel very much, so I turned to my Bible and the Lord showed me a verse in Job. “For I know my Redeemer lives, and in the end He will stand on the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see GOD. I myself will see Him-I, not another. How my heart yearns within me!”.-Job 19:25-27. Keep holding on to that hope, and we will see Joel and Daniel again standing with GOD.

Joel and Daniel were such a huge part of my life when I was in France this summer, and the friendship I made with Joel changed my life, we were good friends even after the summer trip, thru email, and The void I felt in my heart when they were taking away will never be filled, but being able to see them icture collection as weel as on this site, keeps my spirits high, you are always in my heart and on my mind. I pray for you often, keep going and never stop.

Love you all , Chelsea Feb 5/2000

I am deeply moved by the death over your two boys. The Lord brought me to their sight and I am compelled to pray for you and your family. Jesus is the only way to peace and healing. The testimonies of Joel and Daniel will always be remembered in my heart. May God be your strength! Isaiah 40:27-31; Matt. 5:3-10

We have been praying much for you particularly over Christmas time. I was really touched by the poems of Daniel especially the one describing his faith. And Rennie I loved the poem “Mum” I was also impressed by Joel’s comments on living the word of God every day

The Lord has laid you both on my heart and please know that there is someone as far away as Dallas, Texas praying for you during this time in your lives. Your web page was wonderful – I read every word. I know whom you find your strength in and I praise God. May you continue to find comfort in Him.

G.L. Dec 28/99

Your boys had a wonderful testimony for Jesus and we were blessed by reading about them. Our prayers will be with you. It’s wonderful to know that they are with Christ and you will see them again. May God give you continued strength, comfort and peace in the Holy Spirit until then. God be with you.

I was saddened to hear of your loss. I will always have fond memories of my time spent with Joel and Daniel in France. Please accept my deepest sympathies and you will be remembered in my prayers.
