From a reader…
Your prayers are requested for the Seago family. They suffered a horrific accidental house fire last weekend that tragically claimed the lives of the mother and 4 of the children. Only the father and one child were able to escape before the windows blew out and the roof collapsed.
Lucinda Seago, 42, and Nicholas (age 15), Martin (12), Demetria (9), and Peter (7) all perished in the early Saturday blaze in the small town of Warwick, MA (pop. 780). The house was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived. Temps were in the single digits at the time. Husband Scott and 10-year old Vivian were the only survivors.
The funeral Mass for Lucinda and the children is this Saturday, 3/11/2017.
My best friend who is Vivian’s godmother says this is a worthy cause if anyone is looking for a Lenten charity to donate to. She is not sure where Scott and Vivian will end up living, but said they have lost most of their family members and all of their worldly goods.
