This is all so sudden...I got a call during my last class of the day that said that some dear friends of ours just lost one of their young children to drowning.

At this time, word hasn't gotten out to their wider circle of family/friends/church, so putting their names here doesn't seem appropriate yet.  It hurts just to type this much.

Lord, have mercy on your servants and their departed little one.

This Sunday evening there will be a panikhida for the child of God, James.

Please pray for his soul, as well as for the parents, Daniel and Mary, and their child, Alexander.
