View Full Version : Very Sad Prayer Request

February 22nd, 2013, 11:58 PM
Please keep my cousin Richard and his three children in your prayers for the next while. Richard and wife Gail have been married over 30 years. Thursday, Richard left to run some errands and was gone about 30 minutes or so. When he returned, he found his sweet wife had taken her own life. I feel so badly for all of them, especially Gail. I know how lost she must have felt to make this choice. I also know she was greeted by my father, who knew her well, and by our Savior, who is helping to sooth her grief.

So very sorry to hear this. Will keep Richard and family lifted up in prayers.
May Father grant comfort to each one daily and wrap them in his love with his peace.

Also, sorry for any confusion this post may cause. My real father, Daddy, died when I was 11. The Dad I refer to frequently is my stepdad, who's been in my life for 25 years.

Prayers will be said for your cousin's family. It is so difficult to understand what inner burdens push someone to do this, the survivors must deal with trying to find some answers to the unanswerable question,"why?"

February 23rd, 2013, 01:17 AM
This is so sad, I pray for your cousin and his children.

February 23rd, 2013, 01:23 AM
Oh, Meli....so sad for everyone. Will say prayers for all of you.

Your family is in my prayers. So sorry this happened.

February 23rd, 2013, 02:01 AM
Meli, lifting everyone up in prayer, this will be real difficult for the family to deal with. Sending extra prayers just for that reason!

February 23rd, 2013, 02:16 AM
I'm very sorry for your loss.

February 23rd, 2013, 03:14 AM
How very, very sad. As hard as it is to lose a loved one, it's so much harder when you know it was caused by their own hand. Years ago my cousin decided to take his own life and it was just so sudden, no depression or sadness, he was always the life of the party, and to this day I don't think anyone in my family has ever truly gotten over it.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all

So very sorry Meli...how tragic that she felt this was an option and even more tragic for those she leaves behind to wonder why.

Dear all, thank you SO MUCH for your prayers and kind thoughts, for your public messages and your private ones. I know your prayers are providing solace for the family, even if the family isn't aware of it. I was unable to attend today's funeral, as it is across the country from where I am. You are all so wonderful.


February 24th, 2013, 09:56 PM
You and the family have been in my thoughts and prayers.
