Prayers for a family for a recent bereavement
« on: September 25, 2017, 10:32:02 am »
So I mentioned in the Hurricane Irma thread that a friend of a friend was doing the driving to Richmond and back to Jacksonville.

She (the driver for the evacuation) posted to Facebook today that her father had passed away and that the memorial service is Thursday (28 September); I get the general impression that his death was unexpected or at least sudden.

So if y'all could pray/send sympathetic thoughts/do what you do for the family, I think that would be appreciated.

Thanks,
~DR

 Keeping her and her family in my prayers.

Prayers for her and her family
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Thank you all.

I don't know her well, but she was kind enough to grab me and my cat (basically sight unseen on the basis of Friend in Virginia's word) and haul us all on a 16-hour road trip there and about a 17-hour trip back, so we got a good bit of conversation time in while on the road and while in Virginia, and she seems like a very kind, intelligent, level-headed young woman, and this has to be a pretty hard blow for anyone to take, especially if it was as abrupt as it seems to have been.
