Please Pray For Us During Our Family Tragedy

Tragedy can strike any family at any given moment of any day.  Our family was rocked with the most devastating, heart breaking, life changing tragedy possible last week.  On December 21 our daughter-in-law Jenni and our son Jacob checked into the hospital for the delivery of their first child. As many of you know, Jacob and Jenni were married 18 months ago.  On what should have been the most wonderful day of their young lives, our beautiful daughter-in-law died following the emergency birth of our precious granddaughter Amelia. Amelia was born mid morning on December 22 and her mother went home to her Heavenly Father very early on the morning of December 23.  Words do not exist to describe the agony of the last week, especially for our son.  He is broken hearted and we are for him.  Please pray for Jacob as he raises his little girl.  And please pray for my husband Sandy and I and our daughter and son-in-law as we help him.  I will post again in the future with a web site being set up for Amelia.  Thank you friends in advance, for your support, friendship, and prayer.  Meanwhile, cherish your loved ones and love each other as if each moment were your last together.

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
Psalms 147:3
