An Angel Now

It's hard to understand why some people have to endure so much. Our friend, Brent, lost his wife two years ago and his daughter yesterday. Brent and Lisa traveled to China with us two and a half years ago to bring home our daughters. Just five short months later, Lisa died suddenly and unexpectedly, leaving behind her husband, newly adopted daughter, and three sons. Yesterday, Brent and his sons suffered another tragic loss. Their beautiful Vivian died suddenly and with no warning. She was 4 1/2 years old. Please keep them in your prayers as they travel an emotional road most of us can't even imagine enduring. In memory of a beautiful angel, here's a picture of Nora and Vivian (on the right). She's resting at peace now and with her mommy in heaven.

Unimaginable!!I often ask God why? Seems so unfair! My heart aches for this family and I will pray for them. Did they learn how both died?

Oh my, Rebecca. My heart is breaking for them. I can't even imagine going through what he's had to go through. That is so horrific. What did Lisa die of and how did Vivian die? I'm so sad for them. I know God is comforting him now but it's so hard to understand why people have to endure such agony. I believe that God only gives us what we can handle but it's hard to understand that sometimes. They are in our prayers.

My heart breaks for them!! I don't think I could recover from such losses. The only silver lining is knowing that both mother and daughter are together and in the loving arms are our heavenly Father and that someday they will all be reunited. I will be praying for them to be covered by the grace and comfort of our loving GOD!!
