Background

Thank you for everyone who took the time out to visit this site. This site will be updated as much as possible for as long as the family wants me to. If you are new to my blogs I am the niece of Randy McCloys brother in law. That has been an area of confusion since the beginning. My aunt is Anna's sister. Ok now that that is cleared up. Let me give you background on how this was started. The night the miners were found I was staying up because I wanted to see the families reunited. That is when I stumbled upon the AOL message boards and began reading them. When I found out that Randy was the sole survivor I called my uncle who gave me an update on how he was doing. I decided to post that information and the response was amazing! I received responses at times so fast that I couldnt even read them as fast as I was getting them. I let the family know of the post and they began asking me to say things for them. This past weekend by parents gave the family a book of comments and emails from that board and they greatly appreciated it. This blogger site was created so that people can still get information long after the media stops reporting on it. I will be putting links on here about where to send money and cards for all the families as I receive it. I can assure you that anything I put on here will be information that comes from the family or straight from the dr's mouth. Thank you for your thoughts are prayers. Feel free to leave good thoughts here!

Heather?
I believe from what I have read that is your name? First I must say my thought's and prayer's have been with ALL of the miner's and families since this awful tragedy happened. The other day I discovered the AOL post's on it and started following a lot there. Like you I have been both pleased as well as upset by the posting's there. I am so glad you set this site up and will continue to follow Randy's progress here. None of us know why horrible event's like this happen but I truly believe there is a reason. I lost my daughter 2 1/2 year's ago on my birthday. She was only 21 and such a treasure to my whole family. When it occurred I was only 5 feet from her taking a nap. Since then there has been so many what ifs and why's but no answer's. All I can do is trust in God and try to go on as she would want me to. What I do know is that what you are doing is a blessing to not only your family but all of America who are anxiously waiting for news of Randy. You are also right about those you say negative thing's. These people need to be ignored comment wise and sadly prayed for as they are sad people to begin with. Please let your family know that they are the minority and the majority are praying for Randy's continued recovery. On that note also trust that even if it is not a complete recovery it is the will of God and good can come of it if they only trust in him and follow his guidance. If you can do it please let the other 12 families know that most of us are behind them completely and are praying for them as well. Those miners like many other professions willingly take risks to do a much need dangerous job. Thank-you again for this site and will keep all in my prayer's as long as needed.
Thank-you & Angel Blessing's

I THINK IT IS NICE HEATHER WHAT YOUR DOING SO EVERYONE CAN KNOW THE FAMILY oF RANDY MCCLOY and how thinsg are prgressing. He has our prayers and so does his family. His children and wife. just stay in the palm of his hand and know God allows things, but does not cause them. And God will take us thru them. Have to believe that He will not put more on you than you can handle. Just remember, " He said, I would never leave thee, nor forsake thee". Hebrews 13:5. I alway remind myself of that when I am overwhelmed by such thinsg. Been there. May Jesus walk with you down this road and may you know his touch and his perfect will for your life. For he keeps his promises and he gives us his perfect attention. And he alway gives his love. Stay in the word, Randy may take ten years to ehal, for once you ahve experienced all hes been thru, time heals all wunds. Just know this will pass. Everything here and now is temporary. Its just a shadow of things to come. IT may take a long time to heal, but he promised he would not crush a spirit that is already down or in despair. Trust him. For hes the author and finisher of our FAITH. And he will take you thru these high waters. Just know you have our prayers and we will cheer you on as you walk down that road. You wont be alone. You have our prayers, Your's In Christ, Susana

Heather,
Thank you so much for sending me the link via email. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and the other families who lost loved ones in this tragedy. I am really glad that you set this site up because to be honest I have not been able to look at the posts on aol because some of them have just really made me upset. I plan on sending the family some items for the children and Randy's wife. Can you let me know what items they are in need of. Again my thoughts and prayers are with all of you and although I know the waiting is hard. Always know that God is with us all and he will see you all through this terrible tragedy.

Heather, You have done a heroic job from the start in being the family's voice. Thank you for all your efforts. May the Lord provide you the strength you need to continue this blog.

To your family I send my prayers for strength and comfort from our Lord because this is not an easy time for any of you.

To Randy and Anna, your love for the Lord, each other and your children has been and will be a source of energy to sustain you through each day no matter how heavy a burden is placed on your shoulders. When it seems too much look upon them and feel the weight ease. My prayer for you is grateful acceptance of whatever the outcome is and continuing faith in the Lord and each other.

To Those Who Lost Their Miracle take comfort that they are now among others who went to live with the Lord. They will live in your hearts and memories and watch through holes in heaven over each of you until you too join them. Be open to signs that they are thinking of you as you think of them.

Love, grace and peace to all

Thank you so much for updating us about Randy's condition. I don't know him or the family, but he is my prayers daily. Such a miracle, and I am hoping he only gets better and better with each day. I must say, and please pass this along to his wife--Anna is amazing on t.v. when she is interviewed--so kind, graceful and humble. Her beauty and love shine through to us all--and it's so selfless of her to allow the rest of the world to hope and pray with her as she keeps us posted.
Thank you again.
My prayers to Randy and his family, as well as all of the other miners' families.
