No Greater Love: +Nikki Bradshaw Carpenter (1978?-2010)

When the moment comes, the Tattered Remnants know what to do.

Nikki Bradshaw Carpenter was a mother of three children in Yazoo County, Mississippi. Someone phoned her in the middle of the storms there to warn of a coming tornado.

She grabbed her three children, piled pillows on them, and held them tight.

When the tornado struck, it picked up the trailer they were in and threw it 100 yards, killing Nikki instantly.

The three babies beneath her were lightly bruised.

Nikki Bradshaw Carpenter was 31.

"Greater love hath no man" (or Mom) "than he who would give his life for his friends."

God rest you, Nikki, and may He duly reward you.
