Urgent Prayer Needed

Dear Friends-
I have some very sad news.  Aaron’s brother, Bryan, was killed this morning. He just turned 21 on Dec. 4.  I have very few details.  He was found in Lake Michigan (Chicago) at 9:30 AM.  He was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.  Our family went to see him.  I have no funeral information.  Aaron and I are flying out probably tomorrow to Chicago.  Please please pray for our family.  This is absolutely devastating.  It’s too much.  Immediate family names: Richard (father), Alice (mother), Linda (step-mother), Rick (brother), Desiree (sister-in-law), Dan (brother), Aaron and I, and Katie (Bryan’s girlfriend). Please pray.
Kari.

Needless to say, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I knew Bryan through mutual friends--we spent plenty of nights hanging out around Chicago. When I heard of what had happened I thought immediately of Dan & Katie...and now, I am thinking of the rest of you as well. May God bring you all some peace at this very sad time. Please know that Bryan touched more lives than you could have ever imagined--he will always be remembered. God bless you all.

I was one of Bryan's teachers at NCC, he played in the jazz combo I directed. I am truly sorry for this tragic loss. I only knew Bryan from this past term but found him to be a wonderful person with a bright future ahead of him. He was the glue that brought the jazz combo together and made everyone sound better. I would like to send a sympathy card to his father/family but I can not find an address. Could that be emailed to me? Again, I am very sorry,
