Friend miscarried
« on: April 28, 2010, 08:31:25 PM »
My friend is the proud father of four.  However, though wishing to add to his blessings, his wife recently miscarried at 15 1/2 weeks. 

Memory eternal to the lost child.

Lord, have mercy on the parents, Philip and Jaimee.
Hey, I don't hand out 9.5s to just anyone!  ;D

Been there :( Memory Eternal!
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

We have too.

"Lord have mercy."

Lord, have mercy and grant healing!

They have my sympathy as well.  It's a heartbreaking experience.
