Shrimp Boat Capsized

Please keep the families of the shrimp boat "Miss Debbie" in your prayers. The boat capsized off the Georgia coast but was from the Swan Quarter area of NC and my family knew the crew. The coast guard has unfortunately ended the search for the missing crew members. From what I understand the captain was on the boat speaking with his wife (who was at home) telling her that a water spout was approaching the boat when the line went dead. Very, very sad situation and a huge loss to the community and family.
Search ends for missing crew from Swan Quarter boat

I have said a prayer for the crew and families. Swan Quarter is such a small community that it will affect them greatly. I love the area.

Oh I am so, so sorry. It's an eyeopener as I saw one a few days ago while traveling in the ocean. Thankfully it never reached water.

My thoughts are with family and all who love and know them. So very sad.
