Our friend John C. Barile, who frequently comments here, has sent in the extraordinarily sad news that his seven-year-old daughter Joanna Maia, is gravely ill and is not expected to survive the day. Please keep Joanna, John, and her whole family in your prayers.
POSTSCRIPT: John writes in with terrible news: "Joanna Maia's heart stopped at 8:08 pm EDT. It was a quick and peaceful passage attended to by her loved ones."
May her memory be eternal.
