Losing One of Our Own

Recently, a military refueling plane crashed in Mississippi and killed 16 personnel.  One of those, Ryan Lohrey (30), was from Middletown, IN, my home.  My town is <5,000, so he was known well around the town.  I went to school with 2 of his uncles, one of whom was a classmate and and I played golf with the other.

Losing someone in a small town hits everyone who lives there.  Seeing my town’s name used so in an article, ARTICLE, brought feelings of sorrow and a bit of fear to my mind.  It’s difficult thinking about actual death and when it gets even town-close, that’s a bit scary in a small rural area.

He had just gotten married for the second time one month earlier, so I cannot even imagine what his widow is going through as well as his two children from the previous marriage.

I am not going to draw this out.  If you want more details either view the article above and/or ask me in a comment.

I thank you for reading.

Namaste,

Scott
