Prayer Request

Rather than celebrating Christ's rebirth today, our family is in mourning. My uncle, Martin, passed away suddenly & without warning this morning. He had a massive heart attack that killed him instantly. Please say a prayer for his 2 daughers & my grandmother. Unfortunately due to distance, we will not be attending his burial tomorrow. They are in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is also the first sibling to pass away. This all happened after my grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday on Wednesday. My parents just arrived from Argentina this morning only to be told that Martin passed away.

We are devastated but know that he is w/ his daughter & wife in Heaven.
