    @Raquel Harris…wonderful prayer.

    I myself am praying for this family…what a tragedy this is. I know that only Jesus Christ can bring comfort during this time that will last today and the weeks, months, years to come.

    The Devil is surely walking about, seeking whom he may devour. He uses drugs, alcohol, depression and many other things to turn peoples worlds upside down. Jesus Christ can be that rock that can help stable a life.
