The loss of a father.... prayers needed.

Hey everyone. I would like to ask you all to be praying for two people and their families.

My neighbor, Kathee (I posted about her dad in a previous post) lost her father last week. Please be praying for her, her son, Jake, her mom and her brother, Matt. They all need all the prayers they can get at this time. They are holding up well and slowly but surely getting thru each day. Please ask for strength, courage and the wisdom to know where to go and how to start over from here. Kathee is a wonderful person and a great friend and it's hard to see someone you care about suffer. She is strong and I know she knows she is... it's just a matter of learning to cope, but like she said, she is taking it one day at a time and going with whatever she is feeling at the moment. Please pray she continues to handle her feelings and emotions well and can find the peace she needs to accept all that is happening.

I also would like to ask you to pray for a friend, Amanda Kaufmann, who also lost her dad. He passed away Saturday, August 9. Please be praying for her and her husband, Cody, and their two kids, Cade and Chloe, as well as Amanda's brother, Aaron, and the rest of her family at this time. She wrote a beautiful post on her blog about her dad and I think it really captured the work of God in people. Her faith really shows what a beautiful person she is. Please read it (her name is linked above) and be praying for the peace and understanding, as well as strength and courage they all need at this time.
