On May 9th, 2008, the Saturday night before Mother's Day an F3 tornado hit the southern 1/3 of Stuttgart. This photo was taken in the backyard of one of my very best friend's house. We thank God everyday that this tree only hit the storage building and not the house.... I would be telling a totally different story.... there were 12 people in the house celebrating a 6 year old's birthday. God held each and every one of us that night.... there was no loss of life.
