" I implore you, my child; observe heaven and earth, consider all that is in them, and acknowledge that God made them out of nothing (ex nihilo), and that mankind comes into being in the same way..." 2 Maccabees 7:28

How Quickly Things Change...

On Saturday afternoon we met up with my cousin Carrie, her husband Ed and their new baby. We went to a smorgasborg style restaurant, ate more than was healthy for us and considered touring the local Budweiser factory.

On Sunday morning we were notified by email that Ed's brother, sister- in- law and nephew had died in a plane crash on Saturday afternoon, leaving behind two teenagers. It was a horrible shock to hear, so I can only imagine what the family is going through right now. Please say a prayer for comfort for the family and especially the children.

Oh my word ... that's unfathomable to me. Will pray for peace and comfort through this awful news.

I will pray for them and their family.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.

From the gates of Hell
rescue their souls, O Lord.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful depearted, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I just finished talking to Elaine and she mentioned this tragedy. I can't fathom what you are going through. You and your family are in my prayers. Words fail me and Br Robert probably said it best.
