In Honor of Joey

"If every tear we shed for you became a star above; you’d stroll in Angel’s garden, lit by everlasting love."
~Author Unknown

Today I attended a funeral of a 12-year old boy--Joey Sudo. As the presiding priest said, "there are no words." The service was beautiful. Friends sang heartfelt songs, the priest was compassionate and wonderful, and the church was packed. Joey's mom and little sister said the eulogy. I can't even imagine how they did it.
The family has a very large support group, but they still need prayers. Prayers to get them through after friends and family go home; prayers for late at night when they pass by his room; prayers for when they see little boys his age playing in the neighborhood; prayers for every day they have to live without their son.
This post is in honor of a very, very brave boy who fought cancer for five years. It's in honor of his grieving family who stood by him every step of the way.
No need for comments. Just prayers.

"... attended a funeral of a 12-year old boy..." should never be in anyone's vocabulary. I'm so sorry.
