Loving Lord and Heavenly Father, I want to lift up some dear friends of mind that are going through so much grief at the moment and are finding it so difficult to come to terms with all that has taken place in the loss of Jackie Hammett.

I humbly ask that You would come to them and provide the comfort they need to come to terms with all that has happened and the strength to face the reality that things will never be as they were.

Lord, I know that their grief seems to be overwhelming them and I am hurting for them, and know not what to do to help and so I am coming to You to in prayer, to ask that You will meet each of them at their point of need and help them to turn to You at this sad time.

I pray that as the day passes Your healing touch will comfort and secure them in this time of distress and sadness and may this be a thing that causes each of them to draw closer to You, knowing that You alone can heal the broken-hearted and bring joy out of pain.

Thank You Lord for being there for each one of them and into Your hands we place each one of these dear loved ones who have such sadness in their hearts.

I KNOW in Whom I believe in and I have confidence that You will bring good out of this situation, and to You be all the praise and glory, Forever & Ever

I Marty Yesberg am Praying to you Heavenly Father in Jesus Name

Sue, Mark and Debbie
I am heartbroken at this loss. Jackie was a wonderful man and I loved him dearly. He made an impact on my life!!
Sue - I love you dearly as well and will be forever grateful that God brought you two into my life. I will always remember the time at the video store and the good times we had.
My daughter still remembers going to the barber shop and letting Jackie cut her hair. She was terrified of a hair cut and Jackie treated her special to help her get over that fear.
Till meet again fear friend ......
