Catholic Family loses son to Alligator at Walt Disney World in Florida - RIP Lane Graves - age 2 - Please pray for the family

A Catholic family has lost their son to an Alligator in Florida. The family was visiting the Disney resort in Orlando, when their two-year-old child was taken by an alligator while playing near their Hotel. They searched but found the lifeless body.  The family is from Elkhorn, Nebraska, and attend St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.
The church released this statement:
 Dear St. Patrick’s Community, It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of a tragic loss in one of our parish families. As many of you have heard from national and local media outlets, there was a child deemed missing at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando, Florida. The family of Matt and Melissa Graves have lost their two year old son, Lane. The Graves are members of St. Patrick’s Parish, and their daughter, Ella, attends our school. Please honor their privacy at this time and keep them in your prayers. Christ’s Peace, St. Patrick’s Parish and School May Lane find joy in the arms of Christ. May his family find comfort, knowing that he has gone before them, but that they will be together again in heaven. God help them.
Please pray for this family.
