Prayers for my neighbor's family
« on: December 21, 2008, 09:17:23 PM »
Last Wednesday, we left our house to find ambulances in front of our neighbor's door (whom we've known for 10 years), who is a single mom with a 17 year old daughter. The mother was found by her daughter the next morning aspirating blood, and reposed this past Friday despite the best medical care in the state. What an awful time of year for it to happen...

Please pray for her family, and especially for her daughter.

Lord have mercy
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

May the Lord have mercy on the family who has suffered the loss of their mother during the holiday season.

Amen!
