The Day GodCalled You Home
God knows that you were sufferingThat the hills were hard to climb.So he gently closed your eyesAnd whispered, Peace Be Thine.In tears we watched you sufferWe watched you fade away.Our hearts were nearly brokenYou fought so hard to stay.But when we saw you sleepingSo peacefully free of painWe could not wish you backTo suffer that again.It broke our hearts to lose youBut you did not go alone.A part of us went with youThe day God called you home.
We Miss You and Love YouYour Family Mom, Luke, Bev, Sean and A.J.

KEY WEST, Fla. —Tropical Storm Isaac targeteda broad swath of the Gulf Coasttoday and had New Orleans inits crosshairs, bearing down just ahead of the seventh anni-versary of Hurricane Katrina.The potential for a landfallas soon as Tuesday promptedevacuations along a wide areaof the Gulf Coast and sentpeople out to stock up onstaples.“I gassed up — truck andgenerator”, John Corll, 59, acarpenter, said as he left aNew Orleans coffee shop thismorning. He went throughKatrina in 2005 and wasexpecting a weaker storm thistime, adding that he thinks thelevee system is in better shapeto handle a storm surge thanwhen Katrina hit. “I think thestate and local governmentsare much better prepared forthe storm surge and emergen-cies,” Corll said.Isaac blew past the FloridaKeys and was rolling north-westward over the open Gulf of Mexico today. The NationalHurricane Center predicted itwould grow to a Category 1hurricane over the warm waterand possibly hit late Tuesdaysomewhere along a roughly300-mile stretch from the bay-ous southwest of New Orleansto the Florida Panhandle.That would be one day shyof seven years after Katrinastruck catastrophically in 2005,although Katrina was a muchstronger Category 5 stormwith winds over 157 miles perhour. Isaac is expected to havetop winds of around 90 mphwhen it hits land.The size of the warning areaand the storm’s wide bands of rain and wind prompted emer-gency declarations in fourstates, and hurricane-testedresidents were boarding uphomes, sticking up on foodand water or getting ready toevacuate.On the Alabama coast,Billy Cannon, 72, was prepar-ing to evacuate with severalcars packed with family andfour Chihuahuas from a homeon a peninsula in Gulf Shores.Canon, who has lived on thecoast for 30 years, said hethinks the order to evacuatetoday was premature.“If it comes in, it’s justgoing to be a big rain storm.I think they overreacted butI understand where they’recoming from. It’s safety,” hesaid.The storm that left eightdead in Haiti blew past theFlorida Keys with little dam-age and promised a drench-ing but little more for Tampa,where the planned today startof the Republican NationalConvention was pushed backa day in case Isaac passedcloser to the bayside city.Isaac could pack a waterydouble punch for the Gulf Coast. If it hits during hightide, Isaac could push flood-waters as deep as 12 feetonto shore in Louisiana,Mississippi and Alabama andup to six feet in the FloridaPanhandle, while dumping upto 18 inches of rain over theregion, the National WeatherService warned.Louisiana Gov. BobbyJindal called a state of emer-gency, and 53,000 residents of St. Charles Parish near NewOrleans were told to leaveahead of the storm. MississippiGov. Phil Bryant, Florida Gov.Rick Scott and Alabama Gov.Robert Bentley also declaredstates of emergency.The oncoming stormstopped work on rigs thataccount for 24 percent of daily oil production in theU.S. potion of the Gulf of Mexico and eight percent of daily natural gas productionthere, the federal Bureau of Safety and EnvironmentalEnforcement said in its latestupdate Sunday.The Gulf of Mexicoaccounts for 23 percent of total U.S. crude oil produc-tion, 7 percent of the nation’snatural gas and more than 40percent of refining capacity.At 5:32 a.m. on Sunday,Delphos Police were called tothe 500 block of South MainStreet in reference to a disputeat a resi-dence inthat area.Uponofficers’arrival,they cameinto con-tact withRichardCook,42, of Delphos,at which time officers servedan active arrest warrant issuedout of Lima Municipal Courtfor Cook.Reports indicate the war-rant was for failure to appearin court on a prior offense.Officers also found that Cookhad three other warrants issuedout of Franklin County forfailure to appear in court.Cook was taken into cus-tody and was turned overto Deputies from the AllenCounty Sheriff’s Department.At 9:09 a.m. on FridayDelphos Police were contact-ed by a subject in reference toa theft complaint that occurredin the 600 block of SouthMain Street.The victim stated some-one had taken a metal ladderfrom a work site in that area.A suspect has been identifiedand the case forwarded to theDetective Bureau.On Friday, Delphos Policewere called to the 800 blockof West Skinner Street in ref-erence to a domestic dispute ata residence in that area.Upon officers arrival, itwas found that no physicalcontact had occurred and thedispute was verbal in nature.At 8 p.m. on Thursday,Delphos Police were calledto the 900 block of NorthMainStreetin refer-ence to adomesticviolencecom-plaint at aresidencein thatarea.Uponofficers’arrival, the victim statedthat her live-in boyfriendhad threatened her withbodily harm.
