His older sister is friends with my daughter and I have known her for several years. My heart was breaking when I heard this on the news, even before I knew of the personal connection. Now, my heart is heavy and drawn out in constant prayer for their peace and comfort. I cannot begin to fathom the sorrow they are feeling.
Thank you all.
(Here is the story in the Arizona Republic for any who would like to read it. It has been on the national news, as well. This would be difficult for a family at any time, but imagine the entire nation knowing your plight--hopefully this means more concentrated prayers for Jacob and the Baudek family.)
