Croy Family Tragedy
This is what is left of the small house that the Croy family called home in Kingston Georgia. A recent fire killed Jeffrey and Scottie Croy, mentaly handicapped brothers who lived there with their elderly parents, David and Glenda. Glenda is seriously injured and is in a burn unit in Austell GA while David is expected to be released from the hospital soon. The family struggled financially before the fire and were uninsured. Now the extended family is faced with the cost of the brothers funeral among other large expenses. Please consider donating to this unfortunate and tragic situation. The funds will be handled by Lighthouse Ministries, a Ministry Partner of NorthPointe Church in Adairsville, GA and all funds will go directly to the needs. God Bless You...+ Read More
I drove out and saw the grave sites of Glenda, Jeffrey, and Scottie today. They are in the Old Macedonia Cemetery off of Highway 20. It is a long way out but it’s peaceful with a view of the lake.
Good Afternoon...Glenda (mom) was laid to rest on Monday. I had the opportunity to pray with David and his son Richard before the funeral...There was grief, but also the knowledge that this family would be reunited in Heaven. The brothers funeral has been completely paid for and we have $2600 to pay on Glenda's so far. Someone had donated $500 already to the funeral home for a total of $3100. We still need $1900 to completely cover all funeral costs. I know so many of you have given and that is such a blessing...PLEASE share this campaign so others who may be led to give can see it. God has been in this from day 1 and he still is. I want to offer thanks to Ricky Woodall and his staff at South Canton Funeral Home for working with this family. They provided 3 funerals including cemetery plot and burial for $5000 each. If you have priced funerals lately, you know what a blessing that is. God Bless you all! Hebrews 6:10 "God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them".
Good Evening...Now that Glenda has passed away, more folks are hearing about this tragedy. This is a story that needs to be told. David has suffered such a loss. I don't have Glenda's arrangement details yet but I will post as soon as I know. I am taking $2000 to the funeral home tomorrow to start on Glenda's service. I know that other donations are coming in so I hope it will be taken care of quickly. Thank you all and God Bless You...
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." I wanted to let you know that your generosity and obedience to God along with many others who gave, has completely covered the brothers funeral and burial costs. God is to be praised. With that praise still in my heart, God showed his sovereignty and control again. I may be a little naïve but I believe the brothers saw their mother suffering from Heaven and asked Jesus to bring her home with them. Glenda passed away quietly today. After hearing just yesterday that she was breathing on her own, God exercised his will to bless her with Heaven. I am continuing the page as there are now even more funeral expenses. You all have given so much and I humbly thank you. Please share this post as many times as you can as I know that God is touching other hearts to help. God Bless our Ministry Angels!
