Please send your prayers!

Sunday night a young relative of mine was in a horrible car accident. He was in the passenger seat with his seat belt on. Another car cut them off and clipped then sending then into a tree. He is fighting for his life right now, but it does not look good. He is in his early 20's. We are praying as hard as we can right now, but could use any support possible right now. His life should not be cut short like this.

Here is a link to the article about the accident. There is a picture of the car. I am amazed anyone survived. He got the worst of it. The other people in the car are all expected to survive.

So sorry to hear of this. Our thoughts are with your relative. Young lives are too precious.

So very sorry for the family and for you. Candle lit and positive thoughts send the young lad's way; let him know that people care and hope that gives him the strength to fight.
