We got the call last night about 11:30 that our friends, Tom and Judy's son, Ben, had died. It was all so sudden. Ben was in Optometry school in Houston, 24 years old and this shouldn't have happened. That was all that kept playing in my head.
Tom and Judy and their daughter, Lori (Ben's sister) had chartered a flight to Houston when they learned that Ben had gone to the ER and were going to be with him. His death was beyond a shock. Ben died before they landed.
Please join me in praying for this broken, shattered and hurting precious family. If only we could all share in some of their hurt and carry it for them for a while . . .
