Tragic loss

I will be away from my blog for a while due to a tragic loss in our family. Phillip's mom and dad, Pam and Harold, came up last night to visit us and we took them out for a very nice Italian dinner for his dad's birthday. Harold turned 55 last night and indulged in a fantastic crawfish pasta dinner and chocolate cake and had a very happy night with family before he tragic passed away. He's had many years of health complications and recently got out of the hospital after being getting 3rd degree burns on his legs at work and having heart complications. They were with us to celebrate his birthday and to relax from the stress at home. He got to see his sons, his grandson Jacob, and his future grandson before he passed. His death was foreseen due to his long list of health problems, but was very unexpected. Please keep us all in your prayers. Phillip was very close to his father and will need as many prayers and support as he can get. Thank you for your love, and thanks for checking in.

See you some time next week hopefully.- Sara

Sara, I am so sad to hear about this. 55 is so young, but I trust that God has a plan for it all. Praying for you and Phillip as you enter this painful and sad time.

Sara and Phillip,

You are in our thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Please let Phillip know that Ryan sends his sympathy. Let us know if there is anything that we can do.

God Bless,
Ryan, Erin and Lucy McLean

Chris and I were in Cullowhee the weekend that Phillip's dad passed away, but I knew that in the midst of you supporting him in the loss the last thing you needed was another phone call. But we prayed for you, and certainly thought of you in this hard time. Let me know if you need anything.
