1936 - 2022Many of you have prayed for my family for years; and I am grateful beyond words for your intercession. For those of you who may not have known, mom was diagnosed with dementia several years ago. It has been a very long journey. I would like to share just a little bit about her. My mom and my dad celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary last September 10. I am so thankful for that. She was a stay-at-home mom for a very long time. When she returned to the workforce, she was the executive secretary for the president of Essex Wire until she retired. Mom was an amazing seamstress! She made most of our clothes, her clothes and even most of our doll clothes. There was absolutely nothing my mom couldn't create on her sewing machine! Mom was also an avid reader and lover of books. Reading to us was a priority for her and the love of reading is an incredible legacy she passed on to my two sister and me, her three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren as we have all followed her in this passion.

Please continue to pray for my dad. He is doing well in dealing with losing mom, but his health is not good at all. While he refuses to get an official diagnosis, the doctors say all things point to bone cancer. And continue to pray for my sisters as well.
Praise. While my family isn't perfect by any means, I am grateful to God for the one that He gave me.
