This is HORRIBLE. I can't believe it. I really can't believe it! I actually knew one of the missionaries personally. He was such an awesome guy! I just can't believe he's gone. When the sister missionaries let me know this morning when I arrived to church (he served as amissionary in my ward for several months; Burrows did), I thought that she's joking. I really couldn't believe what she said. I thought it was just a practical, stupid joke. I can't believe he's gone. Half a month ago he was right next to me, asking me words he didn't know how to conjugate correctly and chillin' at a baptism, and now he's......gone. I can't believe he's dead. The whole ward was crying today. I just find it really hard to believe this. This is so hard for me to accept, I just can't believe it. I'm in shock. I don't wanna know what his (their) parents are feeling at this moment. It ripped my heart in two, I don't wanna know what it's like for them. This is so painful. It hurts so bad. And, somehow, I feel empty right now. I didn't know Elder Davis, but I knew Burrows, and he was an AWESOME young man. AWESOME! Simply as that. This is too painful. I can't believe he's dead.

My son just returned from this mission last year. It is heart rending. My sympathies for you and your friends and the families and friends of the two elders. May the Lord give you peace.

Geesh. You'd think the world was coming to an end.

I'd be happy as hell to have died and left this shit hole behind. Can you imagine being in the presence of our Heavenly Father instead of having to deal with/endure the morons and idiots of this world?

So much for believing in your own faith.

The loss of anyone, family, friend or promising youth is terribly painful to all. Especially to those that were close to the deceased. Let us take comfort in knowing the LORD knows his children and has numbered their days. He is in control and we may trust that he may have a higher calling in mind for these two young servants of his.

As offensive as Blow can be, he is right in that they are in a better place and still living for life is forever. Although we may miss them we will see them again in the resurrection.

My condolences to their families. I know words can't remove the grief of missing faces and shattered dreams for those we love and brought into this world.
