When I first heard the news that Laura Gainey had been washed off the deck of the tall ship she was working on I felt sick to my stomach. What a tragic event to be lost at sea! I know her dad, Bob Gainey, the General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens.
Last night at our Christmas Banquet for the Peterborough Petes we prayed, as a team, for Laura, Bob and the family. Bob lost his wife Cathy to cancer back in 1995.
Please pray for the Gainey family in the days ahead. In God's economy there's still a chance that Laura will be found but hope is diminishing. The search by the Coast Guard has been called off.
Thanks for your prayers!
