Our family lost a special little person tonight. Cole Puryear, Patrick's cousin, went to be with our Lord. Cole was seven years old. He suffered a rare stroke while playing football with his dad, Patrick's cousin, Glen. Our family is in somewhat of a state of shock over what happened. The doctors said this was a rare thing indeed for someone so young. From my short time in the Herndon family, I know that Cole was an energetic, athletically-talent, fun-loving little boy. Thankfully, he was surrounded by believers in Christ who trust in God's will and know that His will is better than our own. While we don't understand what happened, we trust in the sovereignty of our Lord. Please pray for our family as we grapple with this news and continue to trust in Christ's love and comfort. Pray for Glen. Pray for Cade, his tender-hearted older brother. Prayer for Cayci, his mother. It will be a somewhat bittersweet holiday this year, but we will call on the name of the Lord and be thankful that he has provided a way salvation in Jesus Christ so that we can spend eternity with Him.
