Here is a
drawing that Colsonís art teacher, Keith Grissom, did
immediately after he heard about what happened. We
appreciate Keith and all the students at VA High.
Colson was scared to leave the comfort of his
friends in Plano when we moved to Van Alstyne at the
end of his fifth grade year. However, he found many
wonderful people here. The students welcomed him
right away and he enjoyed his new school.
A couple of days after the tornado we went to the
high school early one morning to witness an amazing
site. At least 75-80 students had gathered under the
flag pole with guitars and Bibles to pray and share.
We were pleased to see and hear from the many
students who knew Jesus to be their Lord and Savior.
Their tears and words of comfort to us will never be
We were also presented with a beautiful box filled
with comments and letters by almost one hundred
students. These were wonderfully written and then
laminated. Again, they will not be forgotten.
Below are a few of the many notes we received from
Colsonís fellow students.
