Newly Departed Family

Please pray for the souls of this Kentucky Mennonite family, who were killed early yesterday morning on their way to a wedding after an oncoming truck hit them. Among the dead are a father and mother, several of their children, including a daughter-in-law, two grandchildren and the fiance of one of their daughters. A family friend was also killed. In total, 10 people died tragically, and two little boys (age 3 and 5), grandsons, survived. The entire close-knit community is in terrible shock and they need prayers too.
+ Our dear sister Martha (Rosehip) passed away on Dec 20, 2010.  May her memory be eternal! +

May their memories be eternal.  May their souls dwell with the blessed.  Lord, have mercy.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.
