Danny

on Wednesday, July 15, 2009

When we moved back here 4 years ago, we were fortunate to find a great tennis coach for my son (15 years old) who lives just a stone's throw from our house. Danny is this kind of fellow you want your kids around and to be influenced by. He's a neat guy, built an apartment in his basement for his in laws, taught both of his boys tennis (both played at Univ of Ga and won NCAA titles), a Harley rider, holds kids accountable, picks up my boy nearly everyday for practice, I could go on and on...

Yesterday at 1:00, with one 10 year old girl at his house playing tennis, they encountered a home invasion. A man with a gun tied everyone up, and shot Danny in the leg. The father-in-law freed himself and was able to get a few shots at the fellow thus scaring him off. The 10 year old watched the whole thing happen.

Danny was later released from the hospital with the bullet still in his leg. The man has not been caught yet. If you're a praying sort of person,,,please pray as you're led.

Oh my goodness! How scary for all involved. I will definitely pray the guy is caught. So glad no one was killed.

OMG, wouldn't that be a tramatizing experience. I am praying for peace...and that he has no recurring pain from the bullet...awful...

That is so frightening! At least everyone got out alive and (for the most part) well. Many caring thoughts to Danny and the families involved.
