Latest Journal Update

Another Sad Note

It is with much sadness in my heart that I am writing this journal.  Tonight we got news from our oldest son, Jeff, that one of his dearest friend's, Adam Zfass, passed away.  Adam was extremely close to Jeffrey and was helping him through this rough time that we are all having right now, with the loss of Nick.  Adam was a very firm believer in a higher power, and went regularly with Jeff to the cemetery to talk to God and Nick.

Now, not only has Jeff just lost his brother and most trusted friend, but he has also lost a confidant and loyal friend to him and Nicholas. Although at this time we do not know how Adam passed, we are praying for him and his father.  Adam lost his mother several years ago.

I hope you will join the McDaniel family in prayer for Adam and his dad, and for my son, Jeff.  This will be a true test of faith for Jeffrey, Leana and all of Adams other friends, that knew him AND Nicholas.  To lose two significant people in one's life in such a short period of time is devastating and hard to deal with.  I only hope that my son's faith and belief in God will pull him through.

Again, and as always, thank you for your unending prayers, cards and love for us and for Nicholas.  And now, especially I ask for your prayers for Jeffrey.  May God Bless him and keep his faith strong.

Blessings to all of you for the love, hope, kindness, faith and friendship you have shown all of us.  We continue to need you to lean on and probably will for a long time.  Love, Gwen
