On top of the dire news of Hurricane Irma on the news, it is also a sad day for country music. Don Williams and Troy Gentry both died today. (Troy Gentry of the country duo, Montgomery/Gentry.) Don Williams is a favorite of my Dad's. Such a wonderful voice, deep and comforting to hear...
Don Williams was 78 years old.
Troy Gentry died in a helicopter crash, he was on his way to perform in a concert. Troy was only 50 years of age.
"Under the weather"...the news about Hurricane Irma is scary to watch on TV. The weather models show the storm marching up through Florida and making its way through Georgia. By the time it reaches this area, it is still supposed to have 50 miles per hour winds. This might not sound like much but it can also produce tornadoes and the high winds could blow down trees and power lines. We are told to be watchful. So...we are really "under the weather". Praying for all in Florida and south Georgia, especially.
(The reports of the earthquake in Mexico and the pictures of the hurricane destruction from the Caribbean...so hard to see. Praying for them all.)
