My Heart is Heavy

Tonight my heart is heavy

the devastation in Haiti
has hit close to home

we have lost
a local RCMP officer
that was
working with the UN

it was confirmed tonight
and although I did not know him personally
I have a lump in my throat
and tears burning the backs of my eyes

he was home for Christmas
and just flew back down
on Saturday...

RIP Sgt Mark Gallagher
may God hold you
and comfort your family

Oh Lori, I am so sorry. Living in a city where we have had to say goodbye to FAR too many of our own officers lately, I know that sadness of losing someone who is working to help others.
He will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so, so sorry, Lori. My heart goes out to you and his family and friends.

So sad Lori. I will be thinking of that man and his family during this time. All of those families.

We have a big Haitian population here and the Mayor of a local town has a husband she has not heard from in a few days.

We're praying for all those in Haiti right now.

Oh Honey I'm so sorry. It makes it completely different when you know someone personally. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Devastation of this sort troubles me. But to know someone that it touched troubles me further...

My thoughts are with you.
And his family.
