Default Prayers Needed

Not for me, but for a family in Newberry. The Newberry community lost a great man over the weekend, and nobody saw it coming. News spread fast and the community is kind of in shock. The wife is a teacher in Newberry, has been for years. She taught both of my brothers, and a lot of other people here. All 3 of their children are in college.

The main reason I ask is because the son is having a really tough time. He is a red shirt junior football player at Furman, and his father passed away suddenly over the weekend. The father had been cutting grass, walked in the house and just fell over. The young man is a great person, and was a super star athlete in high school in four sports. He is really having a hard time, his dad never missed a game, and I think he doesn't know what to do right now. I am kind of worried about him. He is strong, but I don't know if he is strong enough for everything he is dealing with right now. I know the entire community is trying to comfort him and the family, but we can only do so much.

Here is some video of the son from high school:


I ask that you please keep this family in your prayers. It won't be the same not seeing his dad at every football, basketball, and baseball game, or seeing him at the local youth fields helping out.

Thanks.

Praying for the family.

I can really identify with this though. Same thing happened to my dad when I was in college. Best advice is to let the family know you're there for them. Even if they don't ask you for anything, it still means a lot. Also, that young man needs his family now more than ever. I didn't deal with it very well and my family and especially my wife (girlfriend at the time) really pulled me out of some dark places.

Wanted to give an update, Marcus was named Defensive Player of the Year at Furman.

From the article about the awards: McMorris, the recipient of Furman's Jeff Snipes Defensive Player of the Year honor, helped headline a big play Paladin defensive unit that paced the SoCon in turnover margin and keyed several impressive late season triumphs. The junior from Newberry, was credited with 113 tackles, nine tackles for-loss, two sacks, and two interceptions — one of which covered 89 yards for a score in a 35-17 triumph over Samford.
