The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning,

that God was going to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly,

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

you did not go alone;

for part of us went with you,

the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,

your love is still our guide;

and though we cannot see you,

you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same;

but as GOD calls us one by one,

The Chain will link again.

Rachel's 31st Birthday

On the website created for Rachel Conger, there is a counter that lists the time since Rachel's disappearance, but for Rachel's daughter, Amber Simmons, it feels like an eternity has gone by. Amber said that she wants people to remember that her mother was a good person, and that she wants her found more than anything. Saturday, October 11, is Rachel Conger's 31st birthday. We would like everyone to take the time and say a prayer for Rachel to be found, and for Amber to get the peace that she needs so much.
