Dave

A friend, Dave, died of a heart attack yesterday at work, while in one of the cottages with the kids. The girl who was going off & stressed him out is on the run. She doesn't yet know what happened, but her peers are threatening to kick the ever-lovin' you-know-what outta her once she returns.

His daughter also does overnights here & his dad/her grandpa died several months ago. In addition, the grandma is not in good health at all. So, please remember this family in your prayers. And the staff & kids here as well.

Consider it done.

Thank you Leslie.

I've not been back to work yet, but I imagine the kids are taking it pretty hard. They've lost enough people in their lives without having this happen, almost before their very eyes.

Has the runaway been found yet? I'm really worried about her. More prayers, coming right up!

Yes, they were picked up about 30 miles away the next day. Our girl is back & the other one is back in her foster home. Another staff & I talked to her about what can happen while on the run, so hopefully she'll think before doing that again.

Thank you so much for the prayers. That is exactly what these girls need. :)
