Our prayer lists are so long these days, we're stumbling over them yet I ask again for your kindness.

My sister-in-law, who has a matasticized cancer tumor on her liver is in grave condition.  She actually was diagnosed before Rebecca (Whtdove) and has been undergoing chemo treatments.  She fell in early August, breaking her pelvic bone. Carol was released from the rehabilitation nursing home with a walker the end of Aug.  Twice she's returned to the hospital since.  CAT scan results show cancer's spread everywhere and she doesn't have much time.

I know the writing's on the wall, but still ask for prayers for the family.  Ed (her husband, my husband's brother)was so torn inside before their mom died in May.  He so wanted to visit her in WI, but had to care for Carol in CA. They have 4 grown children in nearby cities.  Prayers would certainly be appreciated.

Thank you and God bless,
  Rae

Rae, I can't help but think you are an example to us all, and of course you have me praying for Carol, and her family.  May God bless you all.

Many thanks to each of you.  I wasn't asking for prayers for myself but for my husband's brother's family.  All this time they've been told Carol's cancer is a very slow growing type and tests showed the tumor neither shrunk or enlarged.  Now to suddenly learn it's spread all over is quite shocking.  It really makes one wonder about things and treatments.

Your prayers are sincerely appreciated.

My sincerest thanks to each of you.  My sister-in-law is quite weak, not eating, but at home.  Her 2 out of town sisters are there with her and hospice is a great relief, says my brother-in-law. He also extends his thanks for your prayers.

Thank you for all your prayers.  My sister-in-law passed away at 12:45 AM today, with her husband of 51 years at her side.  It's meant a lot to have your prayer support, especially during these trying times.

God bless.

Rae,
I am so sorry for your loss~

In the quiet moments,
when the hurt is hard to bear...
May love become your shelter
and may the beauty of precious memories
be your comfort.
You are held in gentle thought and prayer.

Heart Hugs~Nancy

"Her husband of 51 years"...

Oh, thank the good Lord they had that many years, Rae...I know the love that my parents had, for so many less than that - and still, their love carries on - I know it in so many ways...

I'm so sorry for your loss, and I know she is being hugged by your daughter, even now...

Love,

K
