A great loss...

Thanks to everyone that said a little prayer for Joel's brother.  Unfortunately, early on Valentine's morning we lost him to heaven.  It's been a great loss to everyone, but of course, especially to his immediate family and his wife.  No parent should ever have to bury their child, and no wife should ever have to let go so early on in their marriage.  Joel is taking it pretty hard, as is everyone.  Please continue to pray for his family as they grieve such a tragic loss.  And please say an extra prayer for his wife.  It was difficult enough for me to have the "what would you want if you died" talk with Joel before he deployed; I could not imagine the pain that she is feeling right now.
