Doves, as some of you know my daughter Brittany has been involved with drugs and the wrong boys for 10 years. The email to some close friends below tell what has happened. I know many of you have prayed for us, but we need your prayers now. The sheriffs dept is having an autopsy done for real possibility of foul play. My wife Bev is taking it better than me. I am in such pain.

May the God of all comfort comforts you with His love and grace at this tragic time with the loss of your beloved daughter.
There has been so much stuff via FB that I don't know if you know what has happened.
Brittany went missing on 7-12-16 a Tuesday. It has been a gruesome last 2 weeks with multiple meetings with the Hays County Sherriff's Dept.
Yesterday Bev and I again met with the staff for 2 hours.........that was Friday. After the meeting I did not feel easy in my spirit. Also shortly after that Bev and I had to work hard to move Brittany's belongings from her apartment home. Her shoes, purses, clothes and other of her small items. Pain.
I was talking to my niece on the phone, a Christian, and was starting to feel a little better. Then the door bell rang at 11:55 pm. While still on the phone I answered the door and 3 of the detectives were at the door. instinctively I knew that meant bad news. They came in and quickly informed us that Brittany's body had been found not too far from where they found the car. They said it would have to be a ''closed casket'' ceremony. I broke down. One female detective bent down and kept handing me tissues. ALL I could say is ''Jesus, Jesus, Jesus'' and ''how much I love her'' .
I can honestly say that I don't think there has been any dad on the earth who has loved a daughter more than I love Brittany. Beyond hurt. Bev held up strong since she knew I would need help.
So I know both of you have been stalwart friends in prayers. We had prayed so very much, covering Brittany with the blood of Jesus in the name of Jesus and invoking promises from God's word like ''the seed of the righteous shall be delivered''. Those promises did not ''work'' in this case.
I have had several friends come by and call, crying. One niece who lost a daughter to drugs said '' david, my daughter and Brittany were looking for love and were too weak to stay away from drugs and the wrong boys...........perhaps God knew it would only destroy them further if they continued down the same path, so HE decided to take them''. I don't know but the pain over 10 years was hard.
The Sherriff's dept is still investigating the ''foul play'' issue re someone hurting Brittany, etc.
The LOVE I had and still have is life -altering, for sure for the rest of my life. I just wanted to share this with my friends.
If you want to call our home phone is 512-441-1291 and Bev's cell is 512-507-9846....please realize at times I may not feel like talking.
love to you both in Jesus' name, I am hurting so bad, breaking down and crying . please pray for me and my wife.
