Prayers are needed for the repose of Darrel Winstead. Late last week Darrel (aka SGT Winstead) died from a rock collapse at a coal mine in Kentucky. I knew him from my time in the Reserves. He was one of the good ones. Always friendly and could carry on a conversation with anyone. Someone called me last Friday but she did not say why she called. I figured if it was important she would have called back or said why she called. I texted her Sunday night but I received no reply. Last night last night another girl I know asked why I wasn't at SGT Winstead's funeral and I was dumbfounded since I didn't know. How wonderful, you don't find out about the death of someone you consider a friend until after the funeral. He wasn't catholic, but you never know. I always put hope in that a person makes an act of perfect contrition before death.
