Anyway...Tonight TJ called me and she was so upset I didn't even recognize her voice.
She said she had been trying all day to get ahold of me.
She had terrible news....her new husband who was the chief of police when she met and married him had left in March to go to Afganistan to help train police officers there. He was killed. The story is below. Please stop and pray for TJ and her son Jared, Her daughter Ericka and family. His name is Durrah Foshee. He also had a daughter named Carol. TJ is very fragile right now and I feel really badly that I can not run to her and help her out. We can all pray for her though. Thank you for doing this for me. She is a special person to me and she needs all the love and prayers you can send her way.
Here is the story:Longtime West Texas lawman dies in Afghanistan
AMARILLO, Texas — A veteran Panhandle lawman who traveled the world training police officers was found dead in Afghanistan, authorities said.
Durrah Foshee, 48, was discovered in his room last week. Preliminary reports suggest he might have suffered a heart attack.
A former sheriff's captain, Foshee had served with the Amarillo, Borger and Fritch police departments during more than 30 years of service.
Bothered by reports of torture by police officers overseas, Foshee traveled to the Middle East and Bosnia to help departments with their training, said Hutchinson County Sheriff's Chief Deputy James Qualls.
"He wanted to make sure the police officers were trained in the right way, to make good legal arrests that would not hurt people," Qualls said.
