Prayers for Papa


You see that tall drink of water on the left....that is my Papa. A wonderful man, with a kind and gentle spirit, a heart big enough to fill up that 6 foot 7 inch frame.

I got word this morning that he had a stroke. His brain is bleeding and he is currently unresponsive. My parents are on their way to be with him in CA. If you could say a prayer that he would feel no pain, I would appreciate it. There is nothing else to be done at this point.

My heart is breaking....my Papa is something special. He had gone out of town to see his brother and sister for a nephew's wedding. It had been awhile since he saw his siblings. The good Lord made that visit happen.

Thank you, my friends.

Hoping for Comfort and Peace.

Thank you Kelli....I just got off the phone with my dad, and he said Papa will be taken off life support some time in the next 24 hours. It's all in God's Hands.

I saw the update that he had passed and I wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for your loss, but I know that you will see him again one day! I pray for the comfort of your happy memories in the coming days.
