He's with Baby Jesus

A very dear friend of mine lost her father-in-law a few days ago. Though he was not well for quite some time, things went downhill quickly enough to be a bit of a shock and his wife could particularly use your prayers.

My friend shared this delightful piece of wisdom from her almost-four-year-old (her daughter was born 5 days before our Frank).

A. (almost 4) was so sweet last night. She burst into tears when she saw all of us crying and heard that Grandpa had died. Then she stopped and very brightly and happily said, "But he's with Baby Jesus now! Isn't that nice?" Indeed.

You have our prayers. No matter how long death is "expected", the amount of grief resulting is often unexpected.

What a sweet little girl!
