    Niece's Sudden Death at Age 20

    Hello, everyone.

    Long story short, a few months ago, I got a chance to meet my brothers for the first time. Big, long family story behind that. Haven't heard much from either of them since - but they've got a lot more to process than I do.

    Anyway, I'm still somewhat out of the loop, so it took a few days for the news to actually reach me, but my 20-year-old niece was on a hiking trip in Colorado, fell ill, and died before rescuers could reach her camp. (I only wish I'd gotten to meet her in this life, but I'll have to await what's to come.) One of several news articles about it is here. Needless to say, my brother, his wife, and their other daughter are devastated, as (I'm sure) are my father and his wife, and other members of the family. So if you might keep them in your prayers, it'd be much appreciated.

    There is no such thing as innocence, only degrees of guilt.

    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist
