For those of you unaware of the circumstances, Pam, Preston and her unborn daughter, baby Evelynn fell victim to a flash flooding incident last night, July 11th, 2019.  Her car was overcome by water and swept away, she was not driving in the flood waters, it was a true flash flood.  Emergency crews spent hours trying to get to the vehicle to no avail.  Josh Knarr, his family and Pam Vera Snyder's family are now suffering something inconceivable.

 When a circumstance such as this happens to someone near and dear you try to do everything and anything you can to help them.  I have few words to begin to describe the heartbreak that has hit this family.  All we can do is be there.  Stop in, give Josh a hug, let him know you are there for him, for Pam's family, for Josh's family, they have now experienced a loss that is unimaginable.  I have started this page to try to do all we can for someone at a time when there is nothing that can be done.  If we could lift them up with generosity, love and support, then we have done all we can do.  Please consider helping these families in any way you can.  I thank you for your time and consideration.  We love you Josh, Pam, Preston, baby Evelynn and both of your families.

I took this poem from the most beautiful pamphlet I've ever seen. It touched my heart, I hope it does the same for you. ❤️

The Three of Us by Randal S. Doaty

To you, my friends and family,
In this, your time of grief,
I send these words of comfort,
That you may find relief.

While in our time of darkness,
I know this may seem strange,
Though you were gripped by terror,
Our fates began to change.

A peace washed over all of us,
A calm I can't explain.
As time stood still.. then silence fell,
No fears - no wants - no pain.

Your prayers and frantic efforts,
We felt them.. all your love,
As we departed from that place,
Together, up above.

Preston loved the angels,
The angels loved him too.
His smile - it seemed to light our way,
His love was shining through.

An angel turned and handed me,
My precious Evelynn Rose,
Our precious little baby girl,
She's perfect - head to toes.

It's not how we had planned it,
Or hoped that it would be,
For now our lives must be apart,
But not eternally.

Preston's work was left undone,
He shares this task with you,
To serve your world unselfishly,
Through all you say and do.

Hold fast to all our memories,
Remember all the joy,
And know the three of us are safe,
Where death cannot destroy.

Give grief the season it deserves,
Then let your joy return,
And live the life you're meant to live,
And from this message learn.

Our thoughts are always with you -
The three of us above.
Don't waste a precious moment there,
Go forth and share your love.

One day we all will reunite..
At Heaven's gate we'll meet,
Then never shall we be apart,
And Evelynn Rose you'll meet!

Josh asked that we extend his pure gratitude for all of your heartfelt words and your unbelievable generosity.

He is humbled by all of this and though he has very few words at this time, thankful and grateful for all of you are some of them. They are in the process of funeral arrangements and are filled with gratitude to be able to do things they didn't think they could until seeing the outpouring of support on here.

It's beautiful to see the community far and wide coming together at a time like this.

Several institutions have been in contact for fundraising events in the future and some already put in place as early as today!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We never thought this would be such a success, especially in such a short time. We are all in this together. Much love!!
