More Sadness

I was eating breakfast with my sister Linda this morning when my Linda called crying. Her nephew who I guess is about 30 was on his new job last night and went to the rest room, had a seizure and died. His name is Brad Jenkins and leaves a wife Christina and 2 small children Damion & Ashley. They are living with Linda's Brother Jesse.

Brad was in the military for about 7 years and repaired aircraft and has been out of the service for about a year now. Prayers will be appreciated. Thanks

  5. Odie,
    I am so sorry to hear about your family's loss. As a volunteer with hospice, I can tell you that those kids will need lots of support and a safe place to talk about their loss. If there are hospice services in their area, they may want to call when they are able. Most offer bereavement services. I'm sending my thoughts and prayers.
