Prayers please........family tragedy

Anyone who has a spare minute please say a prayer to keep my sister strong.   As some of you know  we lost my father a few months ago and my sister had brain surgery 4 weeks ago. Friday night her son, my nephew committed suicide. 26 year sold. We are all devastated. I know you all are outsiders so to speak but you are also my friends and if you have an extra minute................I appreciate it. Will elaborate later...Thanks guys. You are all so wonderful, which I why I came on here with this.....I know myself and my family will get extrordiary support from this great group of people. I will be back later.Love you guys..

My family has had recent tragedies happen, a good famliy friend that I grew up with lost her kids, dad and cousin in a housefire, I knew him as well and wish to ask for prayers for them that happened last weekend (5-12-12), then just on (5-15-12) another family friend i grew up lost her father, he was like a father to me as well and then just yesterday (5-16-12) i found out that my nephew of 5yrs, had a follow up check up for cancer, and his mother was told that they found another growth on his lungs and is going to have to have it removed, this little guy fought Wilms tumor cancer for a year and was finally diagnosed cancer free, but now we see that it is trying to come back, please ray for all of my family and friends that they get comfort from God to get thru these hard times ahead.

Thank you all God Bless you all.

thank you so very much. Yes the bear thing was horrible. We all spent 4 hours this afternoon going thru pictures of him for the service tomorrow night. as he was cremated yesterday. I just want to thank MedHelp for not moving this to the social forum........I never go on there and really needed some support here the past few days. Thanks so much again for keeping me here as I got the support that I desperately needed from my friends here.

I just cannot imagine the depth of pain you all are going thru right now.  I could visualize your sister holding on to that bear....God it is just so heartbreaking.  My thoughts remain with you all...there really are just no words.

I understand what you are saying...everything happens for a reason. I am a true believer in that..........it is just had to fathom what the reason was for this, you know?  You have been so comforting to me all along. Thanks for being "YOU"

As to why bad things keep happening, i wish I had an easy answer for that, I know it is so hard to think like this, but try to have faith that everything happens for a reason. i know that is not very comforting at the moment and I apologize. Sending tons of hugs and lots of love!

I just cannot thank you guys enough for all of the kind, supportive words. You have no idea how much it means to me and I am going to print it out for sis to read.  You all are so very incredible.  This is so very horrible. Trying my best to take care of sis (we live in a double and she and her boyfriend are on one side and I rent the other side from them). The worst part yet was this morning...........we usually meet on the back porch for coffee around 6:30 am and she didn't come out this morning. I went over to check on her and she was lying on the couch grasping Chad's (her son) favorite teddy bear from when he was little and crying uncontrollably.  OMG...........this is such a freaking nightmare.........why do these horrible things keep happening to my family?????? I wasn't going to come on here tonight because I just wanted to zombie in front of the TV and try to be distracted for awhile but I so needed support and knew you guys would be here with your well wishes to make me feel better............I was right. Again, thanks so much. Love you guys. Will be in touch............

Words can not capture the true  sorrow  over  the death of your child, nor how very sorry I am for you and your family.   Our daughter died of cancer when she was 24,  completely unexpected, she had always been in perfect health.   It is something I am not comfortable talking about in a "forum" however if there is anything I can do, please PM me and I would  welcome talking to you or your sister.  The circle of life, we do not expect to bury our children, and so few truly understand  (thank God) the  hole in your heart, that never heals.    

My heart is with you and your family, I hope for your strength and peace with one another in the coming days and weeks.      

Sincerely,  Jeanette
