In need of your prayers

#1 Post by newsboysgrl777 »

I know this isn't the right section for a post like this, but I know it is the most frequently visited section, so I hope the admin will please excuse my posting this one thing.

Hi all...I don't post much but I wanted to post and ask you all for your prayers. My brother-in-law, Billy, was killed in a truck/train collision on Saturday afternoon along with 2 of his friends. The family is devestated, as are all of his friends. We lost a very sweet young man who was just beginning to live his live. We're all still in shock and are trying to deal with understanding exactly what happened, making funeral arrangements, etc., as well as trying to cope with our grief and sorrow. I'm asking for your prayers to give us strength and God's peace.

I also want to post a link to a news station that has taken the time to truly air what has happened. If you click on the 'video' link, my husband also speaks about his brother. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. I know God can work through even perfect strangers...and we need all of the support we can get at this trying time. This is the hardest thing I, personally, have ever had to go through...and it is only worse for my husband, his sister, his grandmother, and his parents. Those that loved Billy deeply and have so many memories with him. He will truly be missed by so many.

I'm so very sorry to read of the loss of your dear brother-in-law and in such tragic circumstances. You all must be struggling to come to terms with the awful suddenness of it all. I will pray that you will know God's peace that passes all understanding and that you will see him at work even in this tragedy bringing about his purposes. It is so difficult to understand why things happen and sometimes all we can do is to trust in the dark times. I know something of what you must be feeling - I lost my brother (aged 21) murdered by terrorists in Northern Ireland. It was some time ago now, but the memories we have of him grow more precious as the years pass, and we thank God for the many wonderful times we spent with him. I pray that God will give you strength as you mourn and that in time he will replace the sadness with many loving and precious memories. God bless and much love
