Franklin Family Prayer Request

Hi All,

I'm asking you all to keep the Franklin Family in your prayers today. Heidi, went to wake her 1 yr. old up from a nap and discovered her little girl had passed away while sleeping. This is loving family who needs all our prayers right now, so please pray they have the faith and strength to get through this tragic time in their lives and that they can move on feeling the love and support needed. Thank you.
