Yesterday as Sherri and I were on our way home from North Carolina she got a call. The kind of call you never want to get.

Yesterday around 6 p.m. Sherri’s younger sister’s 4 month old son, Ethan Ronald, passed away from SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).

Who can explain these things?

There surely are no real good answers at a time like this, but in the absence of answers the void is filled as much as possible by the love of family and friends.

Sherri, “The Ladies” and myself are headed on a 12+ hour trip north to be with our family to cry together, love together, and begin the process of healing together.

Here are some ways you can pray:

  1. For Lori and Mike that they would know the Lord who walks with them through the “valley of the shadow of death.”
  2. For Sherri’s parents as they mourn and care for their grieving daughter.
  3. For my bride and her siblings as they grieve with their sister.
  4. For Sherri, “The Ladies” and me that we will be conduits of God’s light in a dark situation.

Thanks friends.
