    I covet your prayers

    I'm mostly a lurker here having quit flying the cub years ago but I'll ask for prayers from any who are of faith.

    I was really pumped this morning. My Acroduster 2 had been ready for AWC inspection for a month and I've had FAA/DAR issues. Mostly the FAA inspector my DAR had been working with retired and I-dotting has become the new norm i.e. the new guy is being careful. Nothing wrong with that but....anyway.

    I hadn't been to the airport for almost two weeks and took my paperwork etc to make sure I had it all. My DAR called just as I unlocked the hangar. He had one little thing for me to do and we were good to go.
    I had no sooner closed my phone and I got another call from my wife Marcia.

    She had just received a call from my 36 year old daughter Carla Armor. Her husband Shawn, my beloved son in law had just been killed in an auto accident. He also leaves his 11 year old son Adian and my granddaughter 19 year old Harlee.

    About 200 miles away. Marcia is just getting there. I need to get help with animals and will finish the airplane and go tomorrow evening......will probably stay a day, come home and go back.....

    I just learned he was going about 40 on a rural road and a trash truck pulled in front of him. Used car and the airbag did not deploy. Seat belt was unlatched and everyone's experience is he always used it. State police were there in 5 min and he was already dead..... State Police are quite interested in the airbag/belt issue, so I'm told. I'm here alone with 12 cats, 2 dogs and 2 horses.......

    Thanks,

    Jack Carnahan

    Jack I'm so sorry to here your news. I remember meeting you at Mexico Farms. It didn't take long for our conversation to go from airplanes to the Lord. Rest in the fact of Romans 8:28-29 "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose." I'll be lifting you and your family up in prayer.

    Prayers are with you and your's Jack. Please be extra careful in your travels as attention to driving is lessened as thoughts are mulled over in these circumstances.

    Jack, God won't give us more than we can bear, but he sure can come close to that. I pray for your family, and that you can respond in the best way.
    May you always choose the time and place you land..

    Do you need a hand? Maybe someone close to you could help you out if you give us an idea of where in WV?

    Thanks again. I did get interesting news. He had been denied life insurance because of medical conditions. Marcia and I figured we would have to pay for funeral (Let's not go there, funeral costs). Turns out Carla's work place recently went with another insurance company and he was given insurance. It went into effect on 12-1-15. It's something.

    Acroduster 2 N22JM received it's AWC today but I'm not sure I want to fly it? (I need to take a few deep breaths)

    I'm on my way tomorrow with the dogs.... Come home Sun. afternoon and go back for funeral Wed.

    Many thanks again,

    Jack
