How tragic!

One of my daughters is 20 years old. I don’t know what I would do other than cry out to the Lord to ease my aching heart.

May the Lord bring comfort and solace in this time of grief and sorrow, to you, and especially your brother and his girlfriend’s family.

As for the man that killed her, may the Lord do a work in his heart. I can’t imagine being him right now.

Cameron is my second son / fourth child. He’s extremely distraught over this; he and Elena were talking marriage.

I rounded him up yesterday, along with my youngest (7 year old son), and took them to a local lake for a long walk in a beautiful, natural setting on a gorgeous day. We walked, fed ducks and geese, etc. I just let him talk it out, cry it out, question, rail, vent....deal with his grief. It helped; he truly knows we’re all here for him. Breaks my heart to see him (and her family) have to endure this. The love of his family, friends, and the Lord will get him through it.

Your prayers are all greatly appreciated. God bless.

Thank you, Chris, for posting this. Thank you, Everyone, for your prayers! Cameron’s church family at Living Word Family Church, Raleigh, NC, is also on their knees and are very supportive of him. She was a beautiful, sweet girl with a precious, precious heart and will be terribly missed. Please pray also for Dr. Cook, the man responsible for this and his family as well! It would be safe to say that they need the Lord to move in their lives as well.

Prayers indeed, for your brother and all her friends and family.
