I have some blog posts I want to publish. I want to recap our busy summer. We went apple picking last week. It all seems so unimportant right now.
We first met the Walbridge family twelve years ago. I will never forget that first homeschool park day when I met Sussette (now our beloved Aunt Sussie) and her sister Jessica. We became fast friends. My Joseph, Sussette's oldest Aubrey and Jessica's oldest Lucas were all in kindergarten together that first year. We had many play dates and field trips and family get togethers. I loved the support of these women. I loved their children. I still do. Those were some of the sweetest days. Our families have grown and distance has seperated us physically, but I love them like the sisters I never had.
I am writing because I am begging for prayers for Jessica and her family.
Jessica and her husband Jason have nine children. Last week they found out they are expecting blessing number ten. It is with heavy heart that I write that Jason passed away on Wednesday. As I write this I can't believe it. If you can please pray for Jessica and her beautiful sweet children. I can't even begin to imagine how they are hurting right now. Jason had a devotion to the Divine Mercy. Would you pray a chaplet for all of them and their sweet unborn baby and for Jason?
A fund was also set up for the family. This is also very much needed. If you feel led to help in any way at all that would be so greatly appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
- Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord
- and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
- May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
- through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
