The Holcombe family spent their Sunday praying at their church like they did most Sundays. But this past Sunday was different when 26 people were killed as a shooter opened fire on Sunday (November 5th) at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, TX.
Another tragedy that has left our hearts heavy took the lives of 8 Holcombe family members. Leaving Joe Holcombe, 86, to mourn the loss of the generations he had raised.
Bryan and Karla Holcombe, a guest preacher and his wife, their son Marc Daniel Holcombe and pregnant daughter-in-law, Crystal Holcombe + four of their grandchildren Noah, Emily, Megan and Greg — were all killed in the devastating mass shooting. (See their full story on New York Times)
Their story is heartbreaking, just like many of those families' who lost a loved one in this shooting and the others.
Our Shop Forward with the #PIMPINJOY and Texas Forever lines continue to raise money for those after tragic events and this one was no exception. We dedicated the 'Texas Forever' line to support victims, families and the surrounding community in Sutherland Springs, TX immediately following the news of the mass shooting.
And thanks to all of those who jumped in to purchase the line, we were able to donate $10,000 directly to the Holcombe family.
