Family Tragedy

October 27, 2014

Beloved, we are reeling from the sudden and tragic death of our nephew Matthew, of a head injury sustained in a car crash Friday night. We have traveled to Southern California to be with his parents and sister where the accident happened, and are helping out as we are needed. Services will be held in Albuquerque, his hometown. Thirty years old, Matt was a talented actor and musician in musical theater, a loving member of his family, and a friend to so many. He was also a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. I am clinging to the promises made real by Christ’s resurrection. My heart is broken for his loss and for the pain his parents are experiencing. I will take some time off from writing to tend to family business; I know you understand.

    Prayers ascend and accompany you, Mary and Andy. I am so very sorry. The Apostle Paul’s opening words in 2 Cor 1:3-4 that God consoles us so we may be able to console others are so heartfelt this day and I pray they come to mind and lift you and strengthen you while others seek to love and console you. Love in Christ, Eleanor Duffield
