Prayer Request

My brother plays baseball and has played with many of the same boys since he was about 5. They now play for their HS and they play on a traveling team. Today they went out of town for a game.

The dad of one of the players was coaching first base on the field and had a major heart attack and collapsed. FOUR nurses happened to be there and tried to help him but there was nothing they could do. At 48 years old with NO medical conditions, he passed away on the field.

His wife happened to not be at this game and had to go travel up there. He left behind a 12 year old little girl and a 16 year old boy.

My heart breaks for this family that we have come to know so well. I can't imagine what they are going through and I think their family could use lots of prayers to get through this hard time right here at Christmas. Today they were going to put up their Christmas tree and decorate their house after the game. I feel absolutely horrible for them!

I know that tonight I will hold my family a little closer. Its crazy to think how fast life can be taken away with no warning. Pin It!

I'll keep everyone in my prayers hon! :( Time goes by so fast and in an instant life can be taken away just as fast.

I came to tag you, and if you want you can do it. It also comes with an award. :) (I got lazy...If I already gave the award(s) to you, then just pass it on to someone deserving. LOL!)
