St. Nektarios, Pray for us!

For those of you who don't know, my dad has been battling cancer for two and a half years now. He has fought long and hard. With God's blessing we have had him for at least a year longer than what we expected. He has been able to play golf and work in the rose garden he loves so dearly. Unfortunately, his body is tiring and hospice has begun.

I come before you this evening to humbly ask for prayers on behalf of my dad and my children. I would be so grateful if you would pray that we all experience Christ's peace at this difficult time.

In love and recovery,
ThereO

We are praying for all of you. I took our St. Nektarios icon down from the icon wall yesterday. Much love to all of you. Call me if you need to talk. I hope we'll see you Thursday. We have a germ running through the family and we're hoping to be well by then.

I didn't know about your father. Prayers for him and the family.
