I Remember Lance Richard Tumulty
Actually, I never met Lance. That will not stop me, however, from remembering him. Today marks the day when Lance, along with 2995 others perished at the hands of Islamic terrorists.
Lance (pictured above) sounds like the kind of guy I would like to get to know. The following comes from a profile page set up by his employer--which by the way lost several other employees when the World Trade Center collapsed:
Lance Tumulty had a great sense of fun and adventure. He loved to motorcycle and hunt, but he was equally happy doing household projects with his brothers, challenging them to see who could paint a wall fastest or chop more wood in 15 minutes.
Lance was not merely a number, he was a person, who left behind a wife, Cynthia, and two daughters. My son was eight days old when Lance's daughters became fatherless.
Today we all should pause and remember what happened on that day five years ago. It seems like we have forgotten all too quickly. I'm sure Cynthia has not forgotten.
Should Cynthia or any of her family read this, they should know that they were prayed for today in this household in northeastern Brazil. May God bless them, and may they know the peace, comfort, and joy that comes through knowing Christ.
This entry was written in participation with the 2996 project. You can see other tributes by going to their site.
