Three Sisters. Father Killed in Iraq. Mother, 41, Just Died. Prayers, Please?

Hi, guys. If I may again impose upon your spiritual gifts and generosity. Difficult times, these, in our neck of the woods.

Tamika Hudson is a young women who works for my wife Catherine. This past Friday, Tamika’s aunt, Kavelyn, succumbed to cancer. She was 41 years old.

Kavelyn has three daughters—Vaneecia, Erykah, and Verhonda. They are ages eight to fourteen.

Three years ago the sisters lost their father, a Marine, to the war in Iraq. So now they are orphans.

Tamika, a Christian, most humbly requested of Catherine that I ask my readers to uphold her nieces in their prayers and thoughts.

The three girls, thank God, will remain together. They will move from their home in San Diego to the home of their mother’s sister, who lives in Memphis.

The funeral for their mother Kavelyn is tomorrow.

Thank you all, and God bless you for the good you do through your prayers.

    What a difficult and troubling situation John. I am praying for these young girls. It is good to hear that they will be able to stay together and live with family. God bless their aunt, I will be praying for her too.

    Dear God,

    What kind of sick fuck kills both parents of three little girls?

    Seriously,

    Annie

  • Yo, Annie. These people are Christian. I understand where you’re coming from. But … this might not be the best time to refer to the entity to which so many who are grieving are right now turning for comfort—as in today, at the funeral—as a “sick fuck.”
