A friend of mine's daugther died today

She was almost the exact same age as my own little girl. She had been having some health issues since she was born. What makes this death particularly hard is that if she had lived somewhere else (another country, or even another city in this country) it is likely that this could have been avoided.

Please pray for the family. God knows their names. Pray that I would know my role in comforting them. I just spent the last week writing a paper on the doctrine of death. I don't feel any better equipped to deal with something we all will someday face but none of us will ever understand.

Please keep these friends in your prayers.
