A tragedy beyond words

Late morning yesterday a worker for the national electric company, EdH, was clearing some trees near live wires.  The tree he was cutting fell on some wires which snapped and dropped down into a small body of water where a mother and her four children were washing.  All five died.  This was at Pont Salomon just up the street from here.  Words fail in trying to describe the anguish felt by the extended family, friends and neighbors there.  Please keep them all in your prayers.


  1. This is heartbreaking. Our thoughts go out to the people there.

  2. Wondering if they belong to our Twin Parish, St. Gerard. My thoughts and prayers go out to all involved.
