View Full Version : Such Sadness

I have a request for the prayer warriors here ....

A co-worker of mine had a massive heart attack over the weekend and passed away suddendly.
Derek was only 40 years old and leaves behind a young wife, and two daughters, ages 11 and 16.
I don't believe he had any medical issues whatsoever - he was in great shape and so very active ...

To say things here at work are somber is really an understatement.

Any prayers would be very much appreciated as I know the family will be going through some very rough times.

Thanks in advance.

So very sad. It was very kind of you to ask for prayers for his family. I'll add them to my prayer list.

Sorry to hear that Jill. About 2 years ago, the same thing happened in my office. It was a 40 year old with 3 year old twins and a 3 month old baby. It's so devistating to the office no matter what. Praying for his family (and friends).
