A death in the family

Filed under Patrick's Blog

In your kindness, please pray for the repose of the soul of my sister-in-law, Tammy (married to my brother Andrew). I just learned that she died in her sleep last night of what appear to be natural causes. Tammy was only 30, and though she had had some illnesses in recent years, this was completely unexpected. As you can imagine, our family, especially Andrew, is in a state of shock. Thank you for your prayers .
