For those of you who met my cousin, Brenda, while I was active in Mid-South, please remember her in prayer.
Her 28-year old son committed suicide yesterday. She is in Southaven, he is in Jacksonville FL. She must take care of everything, wind up his estate, etc. She needs your prayers. He was her only child.
Oh Pat, I'm so sorry to hear that! Tell her if she needs anything to call me. I might be able to get away for a few days to help her pack up his estate. She shouldn't be doing that alone; it's too hard emotionally and physically. This week I'm busy with a charity event which we'll wrap up Fri night. After that, I should have some free time, so tell her she doesn't have to do this alone.
Did you bring Brenda to my garden party years ago? I'm so sorry for your and her loss.
She is there this morning, and it begins all the terrible things she will have to go through. He left a note for her that she has not seen yet. I talked to her last night. She greatly needs our prayers.
Sorry I am so late seeing this thread! I can not imagine having to deal with such a tragedy! I have never met either of you, but I will add you both to my prayer list. I pray God will give her unimaginable strength for this task at hand, and I pray she has some friends who will help her!
Hi Sandra. Brenda is a retired teacher. She is Loving her retirement, and thanks to Us at Dave's, she has a beautiful, flowery back yard. Someone gave her some oak tree seedlings, and they are now 20' tall and provide cool shade for her sitting pleasure. Her back yard is 100% bermuda because she sat there and pulled every weed out of it!! She has a small front yard which she turned into a flower garden. We at Dave's nurtured her at just the right time, and she is a true flower person now.
My sister, Jill, is doing very well. She just started a new job and is intently learning new concepts and methods.
I just miss them (as well as y'all) because we moved 5 hours away.
Thank you for continuing to remember Brenda in your prayers.
Oh Pat, I just found this thread. Such sad news and I am truly sorry. Please let your sister know that we are lifting prayers to our Lord to hold her hand and help her through all of this. Sending warm hugs and thoughts to you, too, Pat. I know you are aching deeply for your sister.
