Heaven-Bound Angel

My heart has been aching for the past 2 days over sweet little Travis DiCarlo. He had his 4th heart surgery on Thursday, developed complications on Friday, and went home to be with Jesus on Saturday. This is pure agony. Pure torture. There are no words to express the deep and debilitating pain I'm feeling for his family and their unimaginable loss.

I know there's nothing I can say or do to lessen the pain the DiCarlo family is feeling right now. I can't even imagine. I know I've had the most draining few days from several standpoints--emotional, mental and physical--and I'm certain my pain hasn't even touched the surface of what they must be feeling.

If you're willing to help, there are a few things you can do. First of all, Travis is still on the bypass machine waiting for an OR as Nicole and Roger made the selfless decision to donate all of his viable organs. Please pray that there is little or no damage to his organs so his legacy can go on through giving life to others. Secondly, please consider making a donation to the DiCarlo family to help cover their upcoming expenses.

Finally, please please PLEASE continue to pray for Nicole, Roger and their entire family as they grieve such a devastating and unexpected loss.
