Heartbroken


My 18 year old nephew KC was brutally murdered on Sunday morning.

My heart is broken for my brother and his family.  As you can imagine, the loss of a child is so completely devastating.

If you pray, please pray for them.


Edit:

I have now set up an online donation site to help my brother's family with overwhelming expenses.  I wish I could cross the ocean to hold his hand, but from overseas this is the very least I can do.

So far we have raised just over $500.  The generosity and love has been incredible.  However, we still have a long way to go.

Any amount is truly appreciated.

  14. I'm a bit late here, but my deepest sympathies to you and your family. Yes, funerals are expensive, that's why Peter's parents advised us to have a "funeral insurance" for each family member, just in case. When they suggested that right after Jonathan's birth, I was kind of taken aback, hadn't we just given life to a new person? Who wants to think about death when you hold a newborn? Now I know that it was good advice and we did follow it. It makes you realize more how precious life is and how quickly and suddenly it can end.

    Love and hugs to all of you.
