Prayers For Victor Davis Hanson

I am remiss in not posting on this sooner as I had intended, however, I will do so now. Along with many readers here, I have been challenged and enlightened over the years by the superlative work of historian and renaissance man, Victor Davis Hanson. Sadly, I read that the week before Thanksgiving, Susannah Merry Hanson, his 27 year old daughter, unexpectedly passed away.

Her father wrote an eloquent obituary for his beloved daughter.

With that, my prayers are with the entire Hanson family. May God fully envelop them in His loving comfort at this time. And with the holiday season in full swing, I’m sure our prayers would be appreciated to help carry them through this difficult time.

  2. When I read about this a while back, I could not conceive of how any parent could write of such a loss at all, let alone with such eloquence. VDH is a hero of mine. Prayers.

  10. Thank you for posting. Accomplished so much in such a short time span. My sister-in-law passed away from chemo complications re AML shortly after her sister passed away from the same disease. Have seen some very promising inroads being made lately – not soon enough.

  11. My heart breaks for her and the years she could have had, her family who must be going through hell, and those who would have known and been better for having known that young woman. Prayers to all.
