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.

My heart goes out to the Schoonover family. I pray they will find the strength to persevere. I'm sure that Patrick would have wanted it that way.

I just heard about this tragedy this evening and will pray for them. I hope many surround this family with prayers and support for the long haul. You might have also heard about Jessica Erickson from Forest Lake. Jessica was a basketball player from Forest Lake High School and was in a terrible accident on the day when we experienced our first icy highways. She lost control of her pick-up on the 11th avenue bridge coming into Forest Lake and was hit broadside. Her pick-up split in half, the cab turned on its top and Jessica's neck was broken. She is still in an induced coma. This family also needs a lot of support. I continue to keep Jack and your family in my prayers.
