More bad news

I don’t even know what the news is, just that it’s bad.

What do you do when a friend calls and gives you not-enough information about people you don’t know all that well anymore?  Show up at the door?  With flowers?  With a hug?  “Hi!  I just wanted to see for myself how dire things are this time!”

Please daven for Alter Mordechai ben Freyda.  He’s 25, but I met him when he was 8, and he’s still a boy.  Living through his first year, and every year since has been a neis; please daven for more time with his family, more simchas, more of the peaceful adult life he deserves after what his childhood threw at him.
