Update on our friends Gary and Ona

First I would like to thank all of you who have been praying for Gary and Ona. Many of you do not know them and have never met them and yet you pray because of our friendship.

Ona has now been moved into a Hospice House where she and Gary can be together and the best of care is provided around the clock.

Here is a note from their daughter, Jessica. “Mom and Dad had a very restful night in their “new home”.  When the doctor came to visit Mom told him she was concerned about all of her “new” visitors.  The Dr pulled Dad aside to address this concern.  Turns out the DOCTOR and staff ARE the NEW visitors.  Mom is very comfortable and the staff is wonderful.  It’s great that Dad is able to not only stay in the room but he has an ACTUAL BED…right now.  This has truly been a blessing.”

We appreciate your continued prayers for the Smith Family.

    Ronnie, thank you for sharing your heart with us. Thanks also to the Smith family and their friends (that’s you) for showing us how to graciously and lovingly pass on to our reward and help our loved ones also to pass on. What a beautiful picture of the body of Christ and family. My tears are for you and the family in your loss of Ona here, and for joy for Ona in receiving her reward and getting to see Jesus face to face!
