Pray for my friend, Jen, today

My life-long friend, Jen, found out Tuesday that she lost her second child at 34 weeks gestation.  They do not know why Baby Ty's heart stopped beating on Monday and might never have the answer.  He was 4 pounds and 3.5 ounces and measured 18.5 inches long.  Please pray for Jen, Brendan, and their 2 year old son, Tegan, while they grieve-- especially today at 4:30 pm as they bury Ty Gary.  I can not imagine the pain of losing a child; my heart is very heavy today.

So, so horrible. May the peace that surpasses all understanding be with them, and may God heal their hearts.

I will surely pray for them and the tragic loss of their son.

Laura,
Thank you so much for including our family not only in your prayers but inviting others to pray with us. Ty's memorial today was perfect. The prayers, the music and the message, delivered by the same great pastor who married Brendan and I just over 5 years ago.

We hope you are all doing well, Steven is getting so big. I read your blog frequently to see what Tegan might be doing in a few months :)

Thank you again, and congratulations on your new, beautiful niece! What a gift from God she is!
