An ask for Christmas prayer...

GunNutGunNut Posts: 5,768 Senior Member
We just got news that a young man in our close family committed suicide last night.  And to make it worse his mom is in ICU on life support.  Without going into details please if you’re so inclined send a prayer for strength for his dad and family.  

Just a reminder that the Holidays can be a very difficult time for some and that some folks in your life might need a little support and extra love today.

    Thanks guys.  Kim got the news from his dad early this morning.  It  put a different light on Christmas to all touched by this.  

    If nothing else,  it really brought into a harsh perspective how little petty differences are truly worth.  Made my calls to my kids a lot more meaningful too...

    Thanks guys.  The father, Kim’s cousin, is a rock.  I don’t think I could be half the man he is under these circumstances...   I pray I never have to find out.  He just posted it on FB.  Some of you might remember him from years back, he used to go by Capt Stan here and the FL Fisherman boards.

    Hold your children close.  He had no clue the young man was in that frame of mind.

    I remember CPT Stan from the fishing forum and on here.  Isn't he the one that got you lost in the swamp while rolling hogs with a 1911?  Please give him our regards, I can not imagine what he is going through.

    An XD 45 but yes, he’s the one.  He’s a heck of a guy, an ARMY retiree (MSG) that has been there and truly done that, got his Hummer blown up leading a recon platoon for his tanks unit in Desert Storm, a patriot and an incredibly giving human being.  

    His son was a kind soul....

    Thank you gentlemen.  It’s working.  Mom woke up last night and said a few words which is amazing since she was technically dead for almost 45 minutes.  She can’t breathe on her own.  The hard part will be giving her the worst news tonight.  Dad is still on mission mode dealing with the aftermath.  Better man than I’ll ever be...

    Take every positive as a gift. I'll continue to pray for your family members. I'm glad mom could at least say a few words. It's gonna be a long rough road ahead, take it day by day.

    Thanks gentlemen.  Looks like mom is out of the woods medically.  Crazy long recovery road for all close to this.  Support prayers do help!
