    An employee of mine in Port Charlotte.

    Last week her 18 year old stepson was killed in an auto accident. Passenger in a car that lost control and hit a tree. Driver walked away. No drugs or alcohol involved.

    Yesterday her husbands brother committed suicide. Shotgun to the chest. Physically fit and very well adjusted, seemingly the last person you would expect.

    Today it was confirmed her mother (also an employee until recently) has ALS. Given three years to live.

    As far as I've determined she and her mother are "spiritual" but not saved. Of course I'm not the Judge. Please pray for comfort and that they may know Christ and be comforted in this so difficult time, especially since the hardest question a Christian can answer is why would loving God allow this much heartache to one family. (I know the answer and try (again) to relay it to them.

    Thanks guys (& gals).
