Prayer Request...

I came upon this post this morning from Cammie. I don't know the family she is speaking of but when I clicked on the link she provided and saw pictures and read her post, I felt compelled to post her story. (Click on the word "story" in the previous sentence and it will take you directly to Christine's post). She and her husband Caedmon, lost their 13 month old daughter on the 23rd, just 4 days ago, after a very brief and unexpected illness. Her funeral is today, and as I write this post, they along with family and friends, are at her visitation in Texas. Her funeral follows right afterward. I can't even imagine what they are going through.........I was speechless when I read their story. So I am asking those of you reading this post to please pray for her family, and keep them in your thoughts today, and in the days ahead. After the funeral, when all the activity is over, and the visitors have left, is the most silent and painful time. I have buried my brother, both my parents, and both my in-laws. I can't describe what that time is like; it's just devastating and lonely.

Thank you so much for reading this post, and for your friendship. It's amazing to reach so many people with just this little keyboard in front of me. It's during times like this when all your thoughts are greatly appreciated!


  1. It is amazing how much your cyber friends can mean to you, isn't it? I am so glad you are mine! :)

    Adding their family to my prayer list...

  2. You're so sweet Siobhan! Your friendship, as well as everyone on Kota's has been a blessing!
