She needs prayers of love, and a pain free passing........

Can you please share a prayer and a thought, and double loves to her family? Our friend Annette is now in hospice care at home, and her wonderful husband has informed us she has a few days on earth.

Her adorable sons and husband are in our thoughts and prayers, as I just can't imagine Ryan and Kurtis losing their momma, and Tom losing his dear wife, and sister Lisa and her dad- its just too painful. We are thinking of you all.


Tammy and Parker said...

That is exactly what we will do.

How incredibly sad. I hope her family gets to feel some closure and that she passes peacefully.

Jan, I hope it is okay that I borrowed Annette's picture and used it on Parker's blog. I figure the more prayers the better.
