Our hearts are breaking

We just learned that a dear friend, deacon over youth at West Metro,  and amazing Christian brother fell ill and left this world suddenly and unexpectedly last night.  I can't even describe to you the pain we are experiencing here this morning and the shock.  I can not begin to imagine what it is like for his precious wife and children.  

James baptizing their oldest son Michael
What an amazing Christian father, husband and friend
We're blessed to have been touched by him and will treasure our memories of this great man.  
We look forward to seeing him again!  

Please all of you reading, if you will be in fervent prayer for the Olson family.

Thank you for posting this. I had no idea this had happened. I called the Burnt Hickory Church and they confirmed it. He will be missed by a lot of people. He was such a godly man.
