A Tragic Loss

On April 7th, I solicited prayers for a young mother. Several months ago she delivered her premature baby and she ultimately ended up requiring a heart transplant. Other than needing a heart, she appeared to be significantly healed and was home with her family, which includes her husband, their six-year old daughter and infant son. Last week she experienced a brain hemorrhage, leaving her in a coma.

It is with a heavy heart that I write of Wendy Talarico's passing. She is resting with God, but I want to request intercessory prayer for her family. They are understandably grieving and hurting so much.

Please pray for her husband, Frank, who is left to raise their two children without his loving wife. Please pray for their daughter, who is old enough to remember her mother - and miss her. Please pray for their little son, who will never remember his own mother. And please pray for her entire extended family.

It's a true miracle that her family had these last several months together. Modern medicine was at a loss to explain why she recovered to the extent that she did. Perhaps God gave her family that final bit of time together as a gift.

Please keep this family lifted up in prayer. . .
