12482297_1466976852.2056_funddescriptionSunday morning around 9:45, Steve Miller, his wife Christina and their 4 precious girls were on their way to church when their vehicle was struck by an Amtrack train.  Steve, Christina and their three girls (Abigail(6), Kathryn(2) and Ellianna(8mos)) went to be with their Creater and the remaining girl (Heidi(4)) was life flighted to Denver, where shes continuing to recover. Your support is greatly appreciated! If you would like to send Heidi cards or anything please send them to: P.O. box 275, Trinidad CO. 81082 
 
  We are cousins of Christina and live here in Trinidad Colorado, this fund is going for Heidi, her hospital bills, funeral arangments and any other expense that may come up.  Myron Wengerd and his wife Andrea (sister to Christina) are adopting Heidi, so he will be the beneficiary of the money to distribute it.

Myron Trent Wengerd and his wife Andrea (Christina's sister) will be adopting Heidi and she will join their family of 2 boys, a girl and one on the way. Continue to pray for the family as they go on with their lives, never to be the same again. Once again we can never express our gratitude enough for you people around the world that have spoken into our lives and blessed us! You mean more than you will ever know!!! May God bless you richly!

THANK YOU! Your support is truly overwhelming! Steve's last prayer request was that he would be able to reach out to his neighbors, little did he know that God had something MUCH bigger in mind. Hundreds of thousands if not millions of people have been touched, from as far away as Australia, India, Italy, England and many, many more places! In the midst of our darkest hour, a light will shine, in the midst of sorrow, joy will be our strength, in the midst of pain, we are healed and by Gods grace we WILL come thru this stronger than we were before! May God richly bless you all for your unselfish giving in this time of need! We appreciate every dollar given, every prayer sent and every message delivered! God Bless You.

Im so sorry for your loss, heartbreaking. Glad to hear they loved Jesus and are now walking on streets of gold and seeing Him face to face. Prayers are for the precious baby left behind and the other family members dealing with such a huge loss. May God grant you peace, strength, and comfort as you try to go on without them. ♥

Will there be any FB page opened for updates? Just asking. I understand if this family wants to try and have some kind of privacy. I am from a prayer group that wondered, if there was. So many people are adding there own assumptions and rumors that I find to be so wrong and sad. So for that reason maybe they might update, who ever is handling it. Or they may choose to ignore it. Just checking. We are praying for all family and friends, anyone effected by this. I think we all feel very heavy hearted. Prayers for you all. ❤️

my heart is broken over this horrible tragedy, especially precious Heidi asking for her mommy...may the Miller family rest in peace...i think Warren Buffett, the billionaire owner of the railroad that owns these tracks (BNSF) should pay for EVERYTHING...after all, he's been lining his pockets for years w all the money saved by not protecting this crossing w some type of active device...i'm pretty sure this terrible tragedy would not have taken place if there had at least been flashing lights...
