Two Children of a Wounded Soldier are being laid to rest today

I had seen this story in posts on several blogs, and also via Soldiers Angels.  This is a tragedy too terrible to even contemplate, but the gist of it is that a wounded soldier who was recuperating at Brooke Army Medical Center in TX, Spc. John Austin Johnson, lost two of his three children in a car accident that occurred while his wife was driving the family to visit him, and the third child is on life support.

Today is the day they will bury their 2 and 5 year old.

The most up-to-date post I have seen about the story is here (along with a picture that will break your heart.)

The Patriot Guard Riders,Soldiers Angels, and many others have stepped up to help this family, but I feel certain they are in need of, and would appreciate, your prayers.
Please hold this family in your heart, today especially, and also in the days ahead....as I will be.
