Almost three weeks have passed since our lives were changed forever.   Janelle is doing the best she can to be strong for her girls and help them cope with the loss of their father.  The evenings are hardest because they all know that's when Arron would normally be home with them.   I pray that with each passing day the pain is more bearable, and the memories bring more comfort than tears.  I also pray that they continue to receive donations for their financial support.  A large portion of the funds raised were consumed by the service and funeral arrangements leaving little for them to live on in the near future.  Please continue to share their story and pray for their wellbeing.

Tuesday morning, 2/5/19, while on a job-site at a small airport near Columbia, MO, Arron Herring and two other young men were overcome by carbon monoxide in an aircraft hangar.  All three were rushed to local hospitals.  Arron suffered a cardiac arrest and was declared brain dead after comprehensive medical intervention and numerous tests. He gave the gift of life through organ donation, dramatically impacting several lives.

Arron was a 29 year old loving husband and doting father of of three young girls aged 7, 5, and 1.  Janelle is absolutely devastated to lose her partner and the father of her children. Janelle is a stay at home mom and Arron was the sole income earner for their family.   Health insurance will help with the medical costs of this tragedy, but without Arron’s income, Janelle and the girls will need financial help.

Please consider donating to help Janelle support their three beautiful daughters.

Final tests confirmed what was previously diagnosed, brain death. Arron has been declared legally dead. As an organ donor he will donate any viable organs. There aren’t words I can think of at the moment to adequately describe the heart wrenching agony of this tragic loss. Arron loved his family fiercely- he worked so hard to make sure his girls were well taken care of. He would be on his way home from work right now, and in a different way, he is.

Thank you all so much for your prayers, shares, loving words, and generosity.

I will update again with service information when arrangements are made.

If We Could Bring You Back Again
By Joanna Fuchs

If we could bring you back again,
For one more hour or day,
We’d express all our unspoken love;
We’d have countless things to say.
If we could bring you back again,
We’d say we treasured you,
And that your presence in our lives
Meant more than we ever knew.
If we could bring you back again,
To tell you what we should,
You’d know how much we miss you now,
And if we could, we would

Arron will undergo another round of testing to confirm his condition before any measures to remove support are taken. Please keep praying.
