A tragedy in our department

The two year-old grandson of Linda Ronsick, our Data Quality Administrator, died on Wednesday from an accidental drowning in a pool just a mile from the church. Linda’s daughter, the little guy’s mom, was distracted with putting sunscreen on another of her children when Benjamin fell in. Despite there being approximately 40 people in the pool area at the time, no one noticed until it was too late. The only blessing in this is that his organs have been donated to help several other children in desperate need. The memorial service is tomorrow morning here at Resurrection.

Please stop and pray for Linda, her husband Gene, their daughter Laura, her husband Matt, and Benjamin’s two brothers Luke (4) and Caleb (10 months). They have a difficult road ahead.

    Wow. Praying here. I hate reading about this stuff, so much more than ever with my own eight month old. Such horrible, horrible things we have to go through sometimes. Yes we know the endgame, but that sure doesn’t lessen the pain sometimes.
