Dealing with death

Here is the status I placed on Facebook this morning while waiting to meet with Kyle’s teacher and principal.

“Life is hard, lots of choices, pressures, health issues, family issues, life & death issues. Most of our problems are self inflicted.”

I had no idea at that time Mike’s brother had taken his own life just a few hours before. I was at home about 10am when Mike called to let me know. I wasn’t having a bad day and I didn’t  have anything like that on my mind. I would have never imagined it.

We desire your prayers for Mike and his family in Rocky Mount. This is going to one of those times when Mike has to deal with the troubles of life and this is not self inflicted.
