Friend commited suicide


#1

Please pray for the Hill family. While in the hospital I made friends with a great guy named Tom. He was a very happy go lucky guy who kept us all smiling and affectionately called all of us ladies “honey”. I found myself wondering why such a happy guy was in there. He had a gift of lifting everyones spirits and making the hospital bearable. We swapped numbers when we left. He called me once after and I always meant to but just hadn’t returned the call yet. Now, I’ll never get the chance. His brother called me today. Tom killed himself a few days ago and he was just found.

Please pray for his family in this time and please also pray for all of us he befriended in the hospital. I hope and pray I will not have to make anymore posts like this, ever again.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend. :frowning: I will be glad to pray for Tom, his family, and all those that know him.

Dear Heavenly Father, I lift up Tom, his family, and friends to You, so that You may help them to cope during this difficult time. Please give them strength to love and to draw close to one another. Show us your mercy dear Lord. Amen.
