On the afternoon of October 18th, the Dryden family left their home intent on spending the afternoon remembering their son Aiden who passed away at birth two months ago. While participating in a balloon release in his honor they received a disturbing phone call informing them that their home was on fire. Investigation into the fire determined that their family had been victims of arson. The Arsonist entered the home, lit paper towel rolls on fire, threw them on the furniture, and then turned on the gas appliances causing an extremely hot explosion that completely incinerated the interior of the house and all of the Dryden's personal belongings. The Drydens were renting this home while they finalized the purchase of their new home.

For those of you who do not know the Dryden family, they are benevolent people who, during all of the hard times they have recently endured, have asked for all of us to keep the mother of the recently apprehended suspect in their prayers since she is now in the position to lose her own child. Angela recently posted this statement: "Please, as you pray for our family, pray for his too. As I have 2 of my boys that are here on earth with me to hold and love, his Mother will have empty arms and I know that feeling. May they be comforted in their time of sorrow."
