Prayers are needed

It is with a heavy heart I write this post.
Sadness struck one of our residents at the nursing home.
A very dear sweet lady who earlier this year had a son die from brain cancer was told today of the death of her 3 year old great granddaughter.The mother of this child (granddaughter of the resident and step daughter of the man who died) backed over and killed her daughter yesterday in Austin Minnesota.This tragic event comes in less then a year after the son/father died.
I do not remember the name of the child or the parents,but we can pray anyway.Such a sad thing and even more so so close to the holidays.
I visited with the great grandma for a short time today and she just cried.She said the mother is such a wonderful mom who loves her kids so much.I cannot begin to imagine the pain this family is feeling at this time.
Lets all say a prayer for this family.

did I read that right? Backed over?

Oh dear. That is positively tragic.
Your hug is sure to offer solace to her.

Took my breath away just reading it. Please know we are praying for this family. It made me think of the Steven Curtis Chapman family who lost their dauthter similarly this year. Is there any way knowing that would help the family?? Prayers going up.
