Prayers, Please

Brian's great uncle, Ernie, passed away Monday afternoon. He was 79 years old and never married. He was with his brother, Sydney, when he had a heart attack. Ernie was Brian's Pawpaw Raymond's brother. We're planning on travelling to Charleston this weekend for the funeral if all of our plans go right. Please keep Brian's family and by extension Ernie's family in your prayers. Brian did not seem shocked when his uncle passed away, and I get the feeling he had been ill for a long time based on what Brian told me. As my sister in law, Anchor Girl, pointed out he's having a big old party in heaven now, and we shouldn't be sad. Still, it's one less person to enjoy while he's here. Prayers for comfort and travel mercies are coveted. Thank you.

Dear Andrea,

I'm so sorry to hear that your family has suffered another loss this year. You certainly have the best attitude and perspective of anyone I know in the face of such trials. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, as ever.
