    I would like to first say thank you for all the prayers, as they have truly been well received. I have lost my baby brother and we will forever question why this had to happen, but I do not place blame as I really believe this to be an honest accident. Please continue praying for my family as we struggle with so many questions and the absence of a very special person from our lives. I would also like to ask for prayers for the Moore family. This is going to be a horrific struggle for them as well. My heart truly aches for what this young man is going to face for the rest of his life.
