Sad news

Hello, folks.

I got new this morning that Eric, the boy we were collecting cards for, died peacefully last night.

I am really not sure what to say, but I do know that I will spend a lot of time thinking of him and his family today.  I know he now has comfort and peace… and I pray for the same for his family.

And, a huge thanks to all of you who sent cards.  I know that love you were sending his way will be helpful to his family now.

And, if you are the praying type, please send up some for my brother-in-law and his family.  (The ones who I did my first card drive for – the family in Africa.)  His mother passed away a couple days ago.  This is especially hard since his father passed away last year.  They will be coming home for a few weeks.  We hope to see them while they are here.

Sorry to pass on this sad news.  Please go give your loved ones a big hug.  I know I will.

(Please don't miss my last post – it has a bit of information on the Card Drive.)

  2. oh my gosh…. I am just so very sad. stunned and sad. for everyone. will be saying lots of prayers.

  3. I am deeply saddened by this news and thank you for sharing Eric’s story with us Jennifer. It’s amazing how people who might not have ever met can come together and share their lives with one another, the joys and the sorrows through this forum. I pray so hard for God to grant the Dr.’s the wisdom to fight pediatric cancers and to find a cure. I hope that more awareness will be brought to these types of cancers so that the families of those lost to them will find peace. Praying for Eric’s family during this sad time.
