Our middle son and his wife flew to Chicago on Thanksgiving night to minister to a young couple they met and befriended on vacation a few years ago. The Chicago couple suffered the most awful loss, of an unborn, near term infant. Jonathan and Stephanie flew to Chicago, rented a car, took a hotel room and sat up most of the night before the Funeral Mass with their friends.
They got to pray with the couple and stand with them during the terrible occasion. I admire Jonathan and Stephanie for their willingness to make such a hard trip.
