Please Pray

Please pray for the families of Emily Burke and Rudolfo Calderon.  They were local teens who were both killed Saturday night in a car accident. Emily's older brother, a 12th grader, was driving and he and another passenger, Alyson Hird...Emily's best friend,  were taken to Shock Trauma. The older brother's name is Paul Burke. Please pray for him.  What a terrible burden to have to carry through the rest of his life.


'My Girl' played softball with Emily at LHS.  She is very sad and is struggling with this.  She's had to deal with a lot of death this year.  Please say a quick prayer for her too.

Thank you guys.

I am praying for families and students effected by this and for your family.

I'm praying. Thanks for this. Yeah I know Paul (he's in my grade...) and I knew Emily.

I never knew your daughter went to Liberty until last week when I saw her in the hallway...I feel horrible! But I saw her today and gave her a smile (although she may have not noticed). I will pray for her too.

I'm going to the prayer service tonight just to try and support some of my friends and all of these people affected.
