Sweet Marie

While we are still reeling from what happened to Gwen, we have learned that Marie, Gwen's aunt, my sister has passed away today, just 2 hours after Gwen.  Please pray for my family.


  1. praying much for your whole family.

  2. I don't know y'all very well, but I am Eleanor Powell's granddaughter, Melissa, and you may have come over for lunch when you first moved here, I know it was some of your family. I was little and can't quite remember who all came. I just remembered how amazing and strong your family was. Y'all impacted me then through your strength and dependence on Him after your father passed away. My grandmother talked about your family a lot.

    I am so, so sorry to hear about all of this. I read some on your blog, and Gwenyth looks so sweet. And I knew Marie and she was always so nice. I am praying earnestly for you all tonight. I can't imagine these losses. May you feel His arms around you tonight and throughout these next few days.

  3. My heart is breaking for you. Of course JC and I are praying for you and your family. Please let us know if there is anything at all we can do, although I can't imagine what that would be.

    Our love and prayers are with you.

  4. Praying. Oh, how I am praying for y'all!

    There are no words. Only pleadings that God would hear our frantic cries for you and give you everything you need from Him.

  5. We ache with you, and we are praying for you, even though we are mostly speechless. We remember that "the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." May the Spirit uplift and sustain you. - Brad and Melissa Jenkins

  6. Our heart breaks for you guys. So much heartache in just one day. It's hard to comprehend. Know we're lifting you and your entire family up in our fervent prayers as the Father holds you through this time. May you be surrounded by His Spirit and His Love.

    Alvin & Brooke Chao

  7. Myers and Laura,
    I don't know what to say. I am so beyond heartbroken for your family. This life is so scary and I know that you both are going through the hardest time of your life. Please know that you gave Gwen such an amazing life and filled her heart with so much love. You are amazing parents and I am so sad that this happened to you.

    So sad to also hear of Myers sister. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you guys.


  8. I don't think we ever met, but you guys bought our house at Ukarumpa & I've been in contact with Miles on and off since then. I cannot Imagine the pain you must all be in. We are praying. Suzanne Earley.


Ten years loom and as always seems to be the case, I find myself struggling the most in the days ahead of the anniversary  - be it her birt...
