    Thoughts and Prayers for IBD and family

    Our hearts are sad, and our thoughts and prayers are with our good friend InletBchDweller (IBD) and her family. Her mother, Wanda Irby, and sister, Deborah Irby, along with friends Roxanne Costello, her husband Barry DeLong, and pilot John Johnson lost their lives in a small plane crash 20 miles south of Chipley, Florida this morning. No one else was aboard.

    All four were residents of Seacrest Beach. They were in route from Destin to the Bahamas to meet Deborah's husband at their home there when bad weather is believed to have caused the tragic accident.

    The SoWal community is already coming together and working to do whatever we can for IBD and her family during this sad time.

    I had heard "rumors" about this earlier today and am sad to hear the confirmation. My thoughts are with IBD, the Costello family and Johnson family.

    This is so very sad. My heart and prayers go to IBD and her family during this most difficult time. Unimaginable, for sure. When you know where services will be, please post it so that those of us who want to remember IBD and her family at this sad time can do so.

    Kurt, Thank you for sharing the sad news.

    IDB...Words do not adequately express my sadness for you and your family. I am so sorry about your loss. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God provide you comfort during this time.
    People will forget what you said.

    I had just heard about Deborah and her mom, but I had no idea about Roxanne and John. The news is just heart-breaking.

    Rebecca (IBD), Jdarg and I (and kids) had just left the movies this afternoon when she got the phone call. Jenny spent time with her this afternoon. We know many of you will want to help the IBD family with your caring support.

    We'll try to keep all of IBD's SoWal friends informed of events. She knows we are making this announcement. She will need all of our prayers and support in the days and weeks to come.

    Much love to IBD, Mr IBD, and Little IBD...

    Rebecca, my heart is breaking for you sweetie. As I said earlier, if there is ANYTHING at all that I can do, just let me know. I am so lucky to know both you and Deb. Your mom raised such beautiful daughters. You know I'll be overseas for the service but my heart and love will be with you, Les and your family.

    Thanks Jdarg and toots for being there for her and I know that her sowal family will help get her through this.

    Sorry I'm not there to hold you right now sweet IBD but I'm there if you need me for anything.

    While I can't even imagine our poor IBD's pain, I can tell all of you guys from experience that the sowal community's support in one's time of need really DOES help. Thank you Kurt for creating this venue for us to laugh, cry and love in. It's truly unique and wonderful community model. IBD WILL get through this with the love and support of her friends.

    Rebecca, there are no words to express the sadness we felt at hearing the news of your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Your entire SoWal support group grieves with you. I remember having dinner with you and your Mom down at Seaside when I was here last and she was such a strong life force, delightful and engaging. I know that she was proud of her girls and you will always have her close in your heart.
