Been an unusual weekend for us.
Had the MDA benefit yesterday and on our way home, we stopped by the store for some bread/milk etc. There was a flyer on the door for a benefit today. A friend of our was murdered a few days ago. No one had told us. He was a police officer doing an international drug/prostitution sting. (out of the country) They found him in his apartment with a gunshot to the head. He was 36. He left a wife and two small children. Could you please add Jerry's wife and kids to a prayer list.
Also, a friend of mine (she was 51) died of cancer Friday. She fostered more than 30 children, and was a good friend to everyone she met. Janie suffered from cancer for 18 months, and lost her battle. She left a husband and 4 foster kids, and 4 of her own kids.
Janie and I worked together with a boy named Joey. Joey was deaf (fetal alcohol syndrom caused it). He had lots of problems. Joey is now getting ready to graduate. She was able to foster him for 4 years. This is a tough loss for him.
My two friends will be missed greatly. Please put their families in your prayers tonight.
I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. Both people sounded like they were very special people. I will keep their families in my prayers.
