My 17 year old niece’s father, my former brother-in-law, was in a car accident early Sunday Morning. His pickup truck crossed the line, hit a semi truck, overturned and he was ejected from the truck. The other driver was not injured. I do not yet know his condition, but he was life-flighted to the trauma center.
I ask for prayers that he will have a full recovery, and that his family will not have to suffer further hardship. Although the reasons for my sister’s divorce from him and the resulting declaration of nullity regarding their marriage would typically lead me to have less than charitable feelings towards this man, he has been part of our family one way or another, for 25 years and in many ways I still consider him a friend. My niece has recently had words with him. I pray that her last conversation with her father was not this one.
