A 60-year old G.O.P. candidate from West Virginia was killed yesterday and named as one of three fatalities from the massive snowstorm that has moved through the state.

John Rose, Sr. was reportedly checking the fences on his farm when he was struck by a falling tree limb. According to West Virginia news station WDTV, it is too late to replace Rose’s name on the ballot, and voters will still be able to cast their vote for him during early voting and on Election Day.

If he gets the most votes, citizens will have elected a vacancy and the Republican party executive committee of Barbour County will submit three names to Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and he will select a nominee to serve House District 47, reads the station’s site.

    23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds… Proverbs 27:23
    To Jessica on this post… This public candidate was doing as The Bible tells any of us to do, who have God’s Love for their animals!!! Common Sense also tells us that if that Gentleman’s animals got out because the fencing was being affected badly by the storm, and the animals got out; it could take the life of his animals he rightly Loved, and perhaps another human being(s) life(ves)… He was doing what was Right for him to do in the circumstances, and since he can’t speak for himself at this time, I will do so for him~~ You are showing No Mercy for his family that is left behind, nor his community who also Loved him… If we all got what we deserve, Not a One of us would be Alive now to say anything!!! We have All sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God~~~ By God’s Mercy, The Father sent His only Son Jesus, to live a perfect life for us, that we in our sin natures Refuse to do~~ Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and By Jesus Blood, if we so choose to; can ask God The Father for Jesus’ Precious Blood to cover our sin nature~~ And we can live Eternally with God, rather than in the Eternal Hell that our sin nature affords us!!! If we as a nation would follow what is written in the Bible verse as following, then we would perhaps not had many disasters that have befallen our land U.S.A.!!! 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Something to think about Seriously for Everyone~~~
    I pray that the candidate John Rose Sr., knew all of these facts, followed them fully, and is now enjoying Eternal Life with God the Holy Trinity in the Absolute Luxury of God’s Awesome Presence and Gifts, for those who Believe Him!!!

    So sorry to hear that. JESSICA your a idiot! Farmers have to take care of the farm,crops and animals no matter what the weather or they will all die.. You probably think that all the food you consume and clothes you wear come from pouring water on a magic pill

      oh my… I’m a farmer’s daughter and especially during severe weather dad and the boys were out there —including Christmas, Thanksgiving– dinners were delayed. The cows (our livlihood) had to be fed and fences checked. After all, cows get out, income gone. Snow was the worst. One Thanksgiving, due to rain alert the whole family was working through dinnertime,storing the grain in the grain bin (that we had built). –I’m sure you know this: can’t store grain with too much moisture content. good note: Dad’s 91 coming up in Jan., been married to his first and last wife for 66 1/2 years, got a college education through will and labor, and he raised me, plus several other hard working and educated little monsters.

They all make mistakes .. they all make the wrong calls, They all listen to whoever is giving them the most most money to there election. The plain simple truth is there is a heartbroken family out there who lost a Father , Husband , Friend, Brother to this horrible Storm.. Seriously Every side is corrupted in there own way .. Lets just take the time now to pay our respects to this man and the family who lost him.. May you Rest in Peace fellow brother.. In Christ’s Love.
