Amongst the dozens slaughtered by the atheist terrorist, Devin Kelley, was a pregnant mother. What a sad and tragic story this is! As we read in one report:
A pregnant mother and three of her five young children along with several other members of her extended family were among the 26 people murdered inside the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday.
Crystal Holcombe lost her first husband, Peter Hill, to heart disease in April 2011, according to family friend Brooke Morales in a GoFundMe campaign launched Monday.
Crystal was married to Peter for 12 years before his death and they had five children together: Phillip, Greg, Megan, Emily and Evelyn. She met and married her last husband, John Holcombe, at First Baptist Church a year later in 2012. And John raised her children as his own. They were all devout Christians.
On Sunday morning, John’s father, Bryan Holcombe, was the guest preacher.
As Crystal, John and her children worshiped at First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs on Sunday, Devin Kelley, 26, began firing at the building shortly after the 11 a.m. service began with a Ruger military-style rifle.
Within minutes, Crystal, Emily, Megan and Greg were dead, The New York Times said. Her father-in-law, his wife, Crystal’s brother-in-law Marc Daniel Holcombe and his 18-month old daughter, Noah, were killed too.
Joe Holcombe, 86, Bryan’s father, told The New York Times that almost the entire Holcombe family was killed on Sunday.
