Prayer Request

Tonight, I'm asking for prayer for my Dad and his girlfriend's family.

                                    My Dad and I at a Halloween Benefit Dance to help fund Medical Costs

Last year on Father's Day, my Dad was on his Harley with his girlfriend in NJ heading to NY on vacation. He was hit by a drunk driver on a Suzuki bike going over 100 mph and driving on a suspended license. Both my Dad and Nicole were thrown from the bike. Nicole was thrown into the center lane of traffic and couldn't move due to the extent of her injuries. Tragically, she was then run over by a car and killed.

My dad barely escaped death and nearly lost his leg. He will probably need assistance to walk for the rest of his life.

My Dad called Nicole the love of his life. I've never seen him happier than I did with her. Having to tell him, in the hospital, that she passed was the hardest moment in my 25 years of life. Tomorrow is her birthday.

 It is very sad as we just celebrated Valentine's Day without her, and now to have her Birthday come's just very hard. She leaves behind many loving friends and family members including a daughter still in high school.

If you could please keep my Dad and Nicole's families in your prayers tonight and tomorrow, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you so very much.

                                      Dad and Nicole <3 Heaven gained a wonderful Angel.
