It was a sad day here in Evansville, Indiana yesterday. Cpl. Will Powell, who graduated from Reitz High School only two short years ago, was shipped home after being gunned down by enemy fire. The entire city seemed to stop as his body was delivered and the motorcade took him to the funeral home. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
The interesting side to this hero’s story is that the funeral services will be held at the church that I have a bride getting married in tomorrow, Crossroads Christian Church. We were able to move around rental delivery times so both events can happen and not interfere with each other.
It will be an emotional day. One hour after a family and many friends exit the church after saying goodbye to a dear friend, a bride full of excitement and emotion will be entering to begin a new journey.
