Listen to “Edie's Christmas Wish” on Spreaker.
“I would like to nominate the Johnston family, Edie and her son, Cole. They are neighbors in my neighborhood and in need of extra Christmas joy this year. On the evening of December 3rd, a drunk driver was speeding through our neighborhood and crashed into the home of the Johnston’s. The point of impact where the truck hit the house was 11 year old Cole’s room. Thankfully, Cole suffered non-life threatening injuries from debris, but was taken to the hospital. From all the commotion, Cole’s dad Billy, suffered a stress-induced heart attack, and went home to be with the Lord that night. I can not begin to imagine the literal and figurative rubble that Edie and Cole will have to overcome. Our community is trying to surround them in love and prayers, help with clean-up efforts, and collecting donations for medical expenses. The last thing Edie should have to think about right now is Christmas expenses for her and Cole. Cole deserves a special Christmas, as close to normal as possible.”
