I've mentioned before that Thad, the girls and I are active members of our tiny mission church's choir; we've become good friends with our choir director, her husband, and their children.
Her husband is one of three children, and we've met both his brother and his sister; we've also gotten to know his parents. Thus, we were sad for the whole family when we learned that his sister died unexpectedly at the end of last week; she had gone into the hospital a few days before with some unexplained symptoms, but tests had been inconclusive and she appeared to be in good overall health, making her sudden decline and death all the more shocking to her family.
Please pray for the repose of her soul, for comfort and strength for her grieving family, and especially for her elderly parents, who are really suffering right now.
God bless, and thank you.
