Prayer Request

Please pray for a co-worker of mine, Karen. On Wed. night her husband called out to her because he had a leg cramp. She massaged his leg and he felt better. The next morning when she woke up, he was dead. We are guessing that the pain in his leg was a blood clot and the massaging loosened it up and it went to his brain or lungs. He was only in his 50's.

I can't even imagine what she is feeling. They were just in the process of buying a new house and they spent all of their time together. As I was talking to the person at work who does the scheduling, I came to the understanding that she would have 3 days off for his death. 3 days!! How does one even begin to cope with losing their husband and just show up to work on Monday or Tuesday? How can you be married on minute and not the next? How does life just go on?

Gosh, that's horrible! I will pray for her. I know exactly how you feel Lura about the 3 days off, I felt the same way when this same thing happened to a lady I used to work with....her husband died unexpectedly in the middle of the night of a heart attack.......I felt sooo bad for her!!! I can't even imagine!

That is horrible. I hope she is doing the best she can right now. The lady that Crystal is talking about (who I work with) took a couple weeks off. Her husband passed away 2 1/2 years ago and I would say up until recently she started coping better. What a tragedy.
