10-3-2008

With Carol's permission I will post abit about Shawn. Some of you may know Carol's brother Shawn passed away yesterday afternoon. I won't go into details, but just wanted to post a bit about the funeral stuff for family and friends.

This is all in the tricities. Viewing on Thursday from 4-7pm at Hillcrest Memorial Center (957 West Clearwater Avenue.) The funeral will be the following day at 11 am at the Church by Carol's mom's house. Not sure of the address at the moment.

Thanks
scott

I am just a blog reader, I don't know you but I've been so touched by your story. I can't even imagine what Carol's family is going through. I am praying for them and will continue to so. I don't think there are any words that match up to the situation.

Scott and Carol I love you guys and just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers continue to be with you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you and your extended family at this time.

Been following through Marie Bailey posts and prayer chain. I am so very sorry and will keep holding you all up in prayer especially Carol and Shawn's mother. Your family is an incredibly strong bunch "As God's children, we live on promises, not explanations. When we arrive in heaven, we will hear the explanations, accept them, and say, 'May the Lord be glorified." (Warren Wiersbe). It is with greatest sympathy and sorrow for your family as I write this.

Dearest, Decker, Gier, Vance Families,

I'm so heartbroken and terribly saddened by this news. Please know I love Shawn and will miss our conversations. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you all bear, just know that you are very close in my heart an in every thought and prayer. May the comfort of God help you during this extremely difficult time. I'll be praying more then ever!

In His Grip,
Marie

with a heavy heart, praying some of this burden can be carried a little by all of the people who care for you... friends, family and "strangers". maybe that's why God has set your family so firmly in so many hearts.

I am just a stranger who wanted to express my sympathy for your family.I cannot even imagine all that you must have and continue to be going through. My prayers go out for you-

Jaina said...

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I hope you are all okay. I will include him and your extended family in my prayers.

JMF said...

I am amazed by your poise and optimism through your cascade of tragedies and difficulties.

I DO NOT think you are going through these things so that you will become better people. I think you already must be better people.

I feel like being a better person when I read this blog.

Dawn said...

I am also very sorry for your loss. My thoughts are also with you and your family during this difficult time.
