Prayers for the soul of Jim
« on: April 10, 2009, 01:16:12 AM »
I just received a department wide e-mail and a second year computer science student, Jim, passed away in his sleep this week.  He was only 20 years old.  Please pray not only for his soul, but for his family and friends as well.

May his memory be eternal.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord, have mercy on Jim.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Memory Eternal! What a tragedy. It's devastating to all when things like this happen. When my daughter was a sophomore in college, she had a friend who died like this, in his sleep, without any apparent reason; he was about 30 y.o. Lord, have mercy!
