Lightning story update

I told you about my online friend who worked with a lady who was killed recently. She had just gotten married two weeks ago and quit her job to be a stay home mom. She went outside to retrieve her son's eyeglasses that the dog had taken into the yard and was stuck by lightening. Well, one of you read that on my blog and emailed me this news article and asked if this was the same lady. Since it said that the husband had also been killed, I didn't think it was, but you know how accurate newspapers can be.

BOSTON -- Authorities have identified the man and woman killed when struck by lightning outside their home in Standish.
The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said the victims were 22-year-old Anthony Clarke and 28-year-old Krysta Bearor. Their names were released Saturday after relatives were notified.
Officials said three small children were at home Friday evening when lightning struck. Investigators said Clarke and Bearor had gone outside to retrieve a pair of eyeglasses the family dog had taken from one of the children.
The lightning deaths were the 19th and 20th recorded this year by the National Weather Service.

Then, another online friend found the obituary of the woman who was killed and it is the same person. This one identifies her children and gives an address to send condolences. I plan to make a quilt for each of the children. If you would like to send a card to the family, the address is at the bottom of the obituary.
