Prayers Please

I am sitting here shaking so hard I can hardly type. I just talked to a dear friend who, with his wife and two sons, have been close friends of ours for many years. The wife just died a hour ago of an alcohol overdose. She has been in chronic pain for a number of years, and I knew she drank too much in an effort to dull the pain, but never anything like this.

Her husband leaves for work very early, and he left as usual, without knowing anything was wrong. It is a day off from school for their HS age children, and when they got up, they called to tell him that she was in bed and unresponsive. They called 911, and did CPR right away. She was given CPR all the way to the hospital, and for an hour after she arrived there. Eventually, they were not able to keep her heart beating.

Please keep the whole family in your prayers. I just don't even know what else to do for them than to ask that of you.
