Prayers for Patrick

Our Minnesota hockey community was stunned by the sudden passing of a fourteen-year-old hockey player last night. 

Patrick Schoonover, a resident of Eagan, Minn., and a Bantam player for the Eastview AA team collapsed during a tournament game yesterday around 4:30 p.m. He was unconscious and pronounced dead after paramedics and medical staff did everything they could to revive him. For more details, here's an article from the New York Daily News: http://nydn.us/1uyejfe

Our hearts are heavy and filled with grief. Although we don't personally know Patrick or his family, we feel a strong bond with them as we are all part of the strong hockey community, not only in the state of Minnesota, but worldwide. This community instantly supported us when Jack was injured, and it goes without saying that we are all there for the Schoonover family today and always. 

So, I write this post and ask for your prayers for Patrick and his family. Your prayers have propelled us to levels of strength that we didn't know we had. I'm confident they'll do the same for the Schoonover family and their community. 

Our deepest sympathy to Patrick's parents, Michael and Gayle, sisters Abby and Anna, and brother Matthew, family, friends, fellow teammates and coaches.

Our hearts are with you.

I hit the heart button in error and am very sorry it happened. I tried to remove it. As a Christian I would never agree with what anonymous posted and I totally agree that that type of post should not be on any Caring Bridge site. I am truly sorry about the mistake I made. I have been supportive of Jack and several others who have Caring Bridge sites.

Yes, I did see that in the paper and on tv,..and just wonder how you would deal with that as a parent...may God give them the strength to get through this devastating experience and tragedy and know that many people are lifting the family up in prayer. May God bless YOU also for putting this on Jack's Caring Bridge. You are a special lady. In His love, Nancy
