This morning at approximately 12:45, my 19 year old brother John, passed away. The cause of his death was accidental gunshot wound to his head and, unfortunately, my mom was stuck in a Midwest airport and could not be there. I was with my brother the entire time at the hospital, holding his hand and talking to him when he finally passed. Although I am shaken to the core, I need to have faith that he is now with our Father in heaven and he is no longer suffering where he is.
I ask you all to please pray for my family in this time. My mom should be getting in around 8:30 this morning and my three best friends are driving down together from different states to be with us, along with aunts, uncles and extended family. I am numb with shock…thinking this just isn’t happening…how could this happen?? Things like this don’t happen to us. I don’t know why God took John but I am praying to believe he is in a better place.
