Prayers needed

Recommended Posts

Hey ya'll

On Thursday this past week one of our close friends from our church (Mark Hulley) died. He was relativley young (49) and left a widow and 9 children. A couple of weeks ago he went to surgery to have his appendix removed. about a week ago, shortly after the surgery, he was having chest pains so he went to the doctor to have him check it out. The doctor said he was fine, so Mark went on with life as normal.

He taught school, so on Thursday he was at a teacher meeting and collapsed. He died at the school.

My mom was at their house all day on Friday. The amazing thing is the number of people that stopped by to pay their respects. Even the UPS driver from the school stopped in. That's the kind of man he was. He touched countless numbers of lives.

We know for a FACT that he was a Christian. The day he died, before he left, he had a Bible study with his entire family, and held the baby, and high fived his entire family as he walked out the door. Little did he know that it'd be the last time to say goodbye.

Makes ya kinda stop and think.

Here's an article:

An account is set up at Woodforest National Bank, in the name of Ann Hulley. If you feel led to donate I know the family would greatly appreciate it. (The article says Mark's name, but it is actually Ann's name.)

Just pray for the family.

A little update................

They've been at church the past coule weeks. They're handling it remarkably well!! I talked with them for a little bit this past Sunday. They're still hurting, (what did you expect!!) but like I said, they're doing better than expected.

I'll be getting my truck running in about a month or two, so I decided I'm gonna start taking their boy (he's 10) fishing a lot. Maybe even to a few football or basket ball games. I told him in a few months I'd take him fishin and he was REALLY excited!!! Hopefully it'll help take his mind off his loss.

Anyways..........Thank's a TON for your prayers!! Keep praying!!

I am sorry I missed this post when it was first posted. I will definitely keep them in my prayers.

I don't mean to jack this thread but I am also helping a new widow who is 42 and has 4 kids. The youngest has mental issues. The oldest is 10 years old. She lost her husband in June. He was 45 and perfectly healthy up until then. He died of a stroke. It was on his sons 10 year birthday. He was proud that he had almost $300,000 in life insurance through work. He had been remodeling their farm house for the last six years while they lived in a trailer on the back of their property. He did most of the work himself. Including custom making molding to match what the original. They were two weeks away from moving in.

Brent and Sonya had spent that Sunday playing with their 4 sons. It was their oldest sons birthday. That night at approximately 11pm Brent woke up in a cold sweat. He woke Sonya up and told her he hadn't felt right for the last two weeks. He then asked her to take him to the emergency room. They packed the kids up and got them loaded into their mini van. Brent noticed that he had left his glasses in the house and told Sonya he would be right back. Brent never came back out. Sonya went back inside and found him lying on their bedroom floor.

Unfortunately Brent misunderstood his insurance policy that he had through work. He had nothing else. It turned out he only had $110,000 in life insurance. Not the $300,000 that he thought he was leaving his family. Now Sonya is trying to deal with the loss of her best friend plus raise 4 kids under the age of 10. She is a stay home mom. Going back to work full time isn't an option due to her littlest one's, Caleb, mental illness. The daycare expense would be to great. Luckily for Sonya $110,000 is JUST enough to pay off all of their debt. Unfortunately being debt free does not put food onto the table. Now she is trying to figure out how to survive as a single mom with 4 kids and no career.

Please make sure you KNOW what type of insurance plan you have. Meet with your insurance agent and have him help you figure out what you need to do to protect your family. DON'T ASSUME! This is the most important thing you can do for you family. Talk to your insurance agent.

No this isn't a sales pitch. I am not selling anything. This isn't a chain letter.

Dealing with Sonya has broken my heart. She asked me to tell her story in hopes that this does not happen to another family. Losing Brent was hard enough on her. Finding out his life insurance was less than half of the amount they thought he had has made the situation even worse.

I'm sorry for jacking this thread but PLEASE do not do this to your family. Go talk to your insurance agent. It is the most important thing you can do for you family. Please spend time with your kids. Tomorrow may not come. Leave them with memories other than you being to tired to play with them.

I'll definatley pray for them!!!

What you said about life insurance is RIGHT ON!! Make sure you have plenty!!!! Especially the younger ones, It's cheaper when your young. One of the first things I'm gonna do when I get married is get a BIG life insurance policy!
