Many of you may have read about the plane crash that killed 5 Indiana University music students. One of those students was a friend of mine. Garth Eppley and I went to the same church growing up, and then performed in Summer Theatre and Honors Choir and various other things together.

When I lost my hair, he actually grew his hair out to cut it and give to me for a wig. He was a great guy with an amazing voice. Just a great person overall. The last time I saw him was last summer at a Summer Theatre reunion show. I wish I would have known.

Please keep his parents, Bill & Laura, and his little brother Miles, me in your thoughts and prayers. I'm sure the friends and family of the other 4 students killed need them, too.

Jesus has a purpose for everything that happens. Though it may be sad in you life and the families lives I'm sure something will happen good as a result of this tragedy. I will pray for them .I believe Katie.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost someone......You are too....God doesn't put anything on us that we can't handle with His help...If there is anything else I can do please don't hesitate to ask ok?

We as humans always want to question WHY. But God knows why and we may never in our live time ever know why, but someone someday may be able to say - AH HA - that is why. Keep the faith and trust that God has a purpose. God is wonderful - knowing Him is Great!

I believe also that through life we experience all these tragedies and there is a purpose - we may not know why now, but I believe we will find out, maybe in the next passage.
Will keep you all in my prayers....

We know someone in the master's program at IU and while I don't follow the news closely, we did wonder if we knew anyone in the crash. Apparently not, but how sad for it to happen

Praying comfort for all the family and friends.

Once again, thanks to you all for your prayers. My friend, Kira, and I got together last evening and talked about Garth. We laughed a lot, but we cried some, too. It was nice to share some memories with a mutual friend. The funeral is on Friday, and I'm sure it will be a celebration of his life.

Thanks again. You guys are great.

I hope the day is not too hard on you Emily, and that you find some closure.
There will be others who need some solace for their heartaches, and I know you will comfort each other.
Hugs for you.....

Many ((((HUGS))) to you and to Garth's family. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss, Emily. Things just don't seem fair at the time and it's hard to see that. Take care of yourself and I am glad you got to talk to your friend and remember Garth.
