Opie’s Angels – Kids Need Some Holiday Cheer [AUDIO]
There's nothing harder than losing someone you love during the holiday season, but for two teenagers to lose their mom just before Christmas is especially hard.We received a letter from Krista who nominated her friend Dennis and his children to help them get through their recent loss.
Dear Opie's Angels,
I would like to nominate my friend Dennis and his children. They have been through a lot this year. He and his family found out his wife had a very rare cancer that Mayo clinic has only treated four times in its history. Basically his wife had a twin that didn't separate at birth. This developed into a cancer that spread after they tried to remove it.
She lost her battle to cancer about a week ago. It is devastating enough to lose a wife and mother, but it happened during the holidays and a time of financial hardship. I ask for prayers more than anything as this family tries to cope with her loss, comfort that the memories they share are happy, but I also ask you guys to help do something for this family.
You are right, it is hard to deal with the loss of anyone - especially during the holidays, but to lose your mom at such an early age is truly devastating. While we can't ease the pain of a loss like this, we can only hope to aide in the healing.
We would like to give the kids a little something to help bring a smile to their face during this difficult time. And we would like to send the family out for a nice dinner so they may reflect and remember their mom/wife and hopefully begin the healing process.
Thank you for nominating this family Krista and Dennis, we hope this will help you and your children begin the healing process.
