Some Sago Miners Left Notes of Assurance

AP: Miners' notes: 'Your dad didn't suffer'.

TALLMANSVILLE, W.Va. - Some of the 12 coal miners who died following an explosion left notes behind assuring family members that their final hours trapped underground were not spent in agony, a relative said Thursday.

“The notes said they weren’t suffering, they were just going to sleep,”

[...] [N]otes left with several of the bodies all carried a similar message: “Your dad didn’t suffer.”

So sad---so very very sad.

Pray for the families and loved ones of those who perished and for a speedy and full recovery for the lone survivor, Randal McCloy.
