    i dont think you should have said “presumed dead” if we keep our faith they can be found alive. they havent been found yet so there is still a chance of survival.

      I agree with you , I have a family member who is friends with this family and I have been peaying hard. I have sent a prayer request out all the way from California. I have faith and beliefe that those babies will be found alive.

      She is definitely out of touch with reality; unless the father and other son staged this mishap/incident and the two sons were taken somewhere else by unknown others; or maybe trapped in a pocket of air underwater. Let’s just pray for this family that they may soon have some closure (be the boys are found alive or at least bodies recovered ) and my GOD who only knows what the father (Mr. Brown) is going through.

    Prayers that the children are in Gods hands and being watched over.
    Also, thoughts and prayers to New Hope School as they provide counseling to the classmates of the children.
