Request for Two Wonderful Families

It has been a difficult week. My cousin, Scott, who I haven't seen in many years, drowned in a heroic effort to save his two young sons. You can read a little more about it here. And a little more about Scott here. The services are today. Please pray for his family. I cannot even imagine how difficult this is for them. (A trust fund has been set up for his three boys.)

On a little happier note, Scott was an actor/entertainer. He worked as a MRI technician and here is a fun video of the Napoleon Dynamite Dance he did for his coworkers.

Also, sadly, a dear friend is battling cancer and received some devastating news yesterday. Just when she thought she had seen the last of it, she found out that it has spread to her brain. She was admitted into the hospital last night. She is a wife and a mother of a grown son and a teenage daughter.

Lori is a friend in my neighborhood and the captain of our tennis team and one of our best players too. Our team won a spot in a tournament in Corpus Christi in August, and as of last week, Lori was expecting to get a release from the doctor in time to get back on the courts before the tournament. We were all looking forward to a fun, rewarding trip, and now we are just crushed that Lori and her family are having to deal with this horrible turn of events.

Please prayer for these two wonderful families!

As a praying woman, I will add these families to my prayer list. Life is sometimes so difficult.
You have a really nice blog. I found you through SCS.
Hope you will stop by, say hi and follow along too.

They (and you) are in my thoughts and prayers. I know what a strength prayer can be and hope that comfort can be found during the struggles.
