Sad Face


Wednesday, April 04, 2012

This morning, I left a sad face on the "Angels" thread. I have had a few inquiries about it. I have avoided sharing. A very wise Lady advised me to share.
My nephew and his wife had a new son,Ezekiel, on March 16. He was 10 weeks early. We found out that he may be blind or have cerebral palsy. He has been on prayer chains since day 1. His daddy is a minister. We still need prayers for him..
This past Sunday,April1, another great nephew lost his life in a motorcycle accident. He was 27 and left an 18 month old son behind. This young man had served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was awarded a purple heart during that time. He had PTSD and was not ready for treatment. He was a student at Western Illinois University. I think he had one semester left. He planned to be a veterinarian.
We have a baby shower for Ezekiel this Saturday morning and Dustin's funeral is that afternoon. I think the Whitaker family could use some prayers.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Hugs, Pam

    My prayers for you and your family. How sad to lose one so young and a veteran. I will pray for the little one with challenges, too. I think we are all here to support each other and it has helped me many times through this journey.

  My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. How difficult it is to lose a young father and to have a new baby with challenges. This is when families need to pull together, supporting each other. I consider members of this Sparkpeople program to be like family, and you know we are always here to allow you to vent.
