    My heart goes out to my very dear friends, Amanda and Chris, and the family of our lost brother. While I know there is nothing I can ever say or do to make any of this go away, I want to send my love and heartfelt prayers to them and the family and friends of the fisherman who was lost at sea. It is the very reality of terrible and tragic accidents like this that bring to light the dangers of fishing. When each and every one of us leave that dock in the middle of the night or early morning, it may be our last day on this earth and it is with that thought that I ask God to please watch over this young man’s soul and help his family with their grief and loss. While I know there is not much that I can do from where I am sitting hundreds of miles away, please know that I am here for you and do not blink or think twice about calling on me to help in any possible way I can. With all my love, prayers, and thoughts, Tina
