He is in bad shape right now, as is her family. Please pray for them. They need it.
As good as done. Your brother, Miss Shapiros family and friends have my deepest condolences.
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.
Prayers for all. Please accept my most sincere condolences. I hope that the memories of happier times will help ease the pain.
Prayers going up!
No words — My sympathies and prayers are going out to your brother, her family, and all her friends....
May the Lord wrap your brother in His arms and keep him safe from danger and heal him to good health and may the Lord be with his girlfriend’s family and friends as they grieve her untimely loss. Amen
Just terrible. Prayers and sympathies for both families.
Prayers for her eternal rest, and for the comfort and consolation of her loved ones, especially for Cameron.
May she rest in peace. Prayers for her family and yours.
I am so sorry. Prayers up for Cameron and for Elena’s family. May she rest in peace.
I am so very sorry! My prayers for your brother and for his girl friend’s family at this terrible time.
Know that you, Cameron and your entire family are in our prayers tonight. Please let Cameron know that he is always fondly thought of and well regarded by our family.
In His Name,
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.
God love...bless...and be with all of you.
My heart goes out to you...and my prayers will be with you.
Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. I’ll make sure he sees them.
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.
Horrible news. I am praying for your brother, her family, and the person who caused the wreck. I will also be sure to appreciate every breath that God gives me and my family and friends.
Prayers indeed, for your brother and all her friends and family.
“...Shapiro was a trainee with the Carolina Ballet and had been dancing since she was 10. The Carolina Ballet Organization released this statement, “The entire Carolina Ballet organization (is) devastated by the loss of Elena. She was a beautiful young girl and will be greatly missed. Our hearts go out to her family...” www.digtriad.com/news/local_state/article.aspx?storyid=130223
