    Hey, thanks for posting this.

    I've been following the Will Norton story via Facebook. He was the teen who had just graduated from high school and was driving home with his dad when the tornado hit. His father was found in the car but they've been searching for Will for a week. They had hopes he was still alive but . . .they finally found his body on Friday. :( There's a news conference at 2:00pm (CST) today from the family but it must just be local. I have on CNN but they haven't said anything about it yet.

    My prayers for all those who mourn lost loved ones, friends, and their homes and/or vehicles and goods, or were injured. May those be strengthened who need to rebuild, especially the elderly, who may feel estranged and without hope. And Missourian, thanks again for letting us know.

    Uh, yeah . . . I posted that they found his body on Friday.

    He was very near where the car was and they had searched that pond several times prior but never found him, likely due to so much debris.

    So many heartbreaking stories . . .. . .
