One week ago today( March 27 2011) at 8:30 Sunday morning a devastating explosion ripped apart an apartment complex shattering windows and blowing out walls. Fire quickly spread sending residents fleeing for their lives. 100 people from 45 units have been left homeless and displaced. Two lives were lost, families are devastated. The Fire Marshall's investigating team are still searching the debris for the cause of the explosion. It is speculated that natural gas was the source.

Thank you for your expressions of sympathy and for your prayers. I appreciate all your thoughtful and kind words.

Their lives….

will never…..

be the same…..


Tragedy has struck once again in this little town of Woodstock Ontario Canada…….Sonday morning is what saved most of the residents of this apartment complex. My prayers are with the families of those who did not make it out. My heart is saddened…..
