News out today that one of the victims in the London terror attack was an American, Kurt Cochran from Utah. He and his wife were visiting London as part of their 25th wedding anniversary and also visiting her parents who are LDS missionaries stationed there.
The wife is alive, still hospitalized, with broken bones….. and a badly broken heart.
I can’t even imagine. Look what a happy couple they are, posing for a photo in London, then strolling over the Westminster Bridge, like all tourists do, bam, a loon, a radicalized Muslim. Don’t get me started.
I trust the US Embassy helps the wife deal with the eventual transportation of Kurt’s body home. Years ago, one of my friends was traveling with her husband in Ireland. He bent over to tie his shoes and dropped dead. To deal with the emotional trauma was bad enough but getting a death certificate in a foreign country was bureaucratic hell. That’s why I pray the Embassy helps Melissa and her extended family.
No words. Just sadness this couple has lost one half.
