Cousin and her son in accident.
« on: May 07, 2017, 11:25:50 PM »
My cousin Ashley and her teenage son Curt were struck by an 18-wheeler earlier this evening. Curt was transported to the children's hospital, but has died. Ashley is expected to recover, but as of this moment has not been told about her son.
Woe is me, that I have read the commandments,
   and have become learned in the Scriptures,
and have been instructed in Your glories,
   and yet I have become occupied in shameful things!

(Giwargis Warda, On Compunction of Soul)

May Curt's memory be eternal.
Lord, have mercy on Ashley, and grant her a full recovery. Have mercy on their family and friends as they grieve and cope.

I'm so very sorry.

May Curt's memory be eternal, and may the Lord grant his mother, Ashley, a speedy and complete recovery of her physical, spiritual and mental ailments.

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.

Jesus Christ, Son of God, Lord have mercy.
The Lord gathers his sheep, I fear I am a goat. Lord have mercy.
