    Very Sad and hard to deal with!

    I would like to ask the Forum Community to remember the Henry Family of Deatsville, Alabama. Thanks in advance for your prayers for this family.

    A Pastor has many things he encounters along the way in his ministry! One of the hardest things to deal with is the way last Thursday morning began. My door bell rang and one of my Church members had stopped by to tell me "something bad happened in Deatsville last night" and then tells me that his neighbor's son (19 yrs old) had put a .357 to his head and ended his life.

    The family has had it's share of difficulty over the last year with the Burn Out of the family business. The parents were not in the best of health and the 19 year old son was having to basically support his family. I don't know the whole story here and only the Lord does but this much of it is very sad and difficult to deal with. I talked with the family earlier today and I think his mother is still in Shock as many are at this time. It has rattled our community as some of the community have watched the young man grow up. I know how it feels to lose my Mother and that still hurts big time but I can't imagine losing a child and especially in a way that generates so many questions.

    At this point I guess I am asking for your prayers for me and others as we seek to try to comfort and help this family with the most difficult time of their life to date!

    Thanks for reading this note
    Hug your family and friends folks.

    Boze,

    Show them the compassion you are feeling and the rest of it will come.
    This is what you were called to do. Doesn't make it easier. But, it does make the pain worth it.

    Love them. You'll figure out the rest. I know, because I've been there.

    May God bless you and this grieving family.
