Please Pray for Larry

Please pray for my dear brother-in-law, Larry. He has not been well for a while, had pnuemonia, congestive heart failure...and last night he called to let me know he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer. He will be travelling to the Midwestern location for Cancer Centers of America, here next week. I hope I can get down there to see him.

Here are a few pictures. Just because.


One of my favorite pictures of Larry. He is with my mother during a visit to our house just after my sister, Darlaine was diagnosed with Alzheimers. It was a bittersweet visit--and the beginning of a closer friendship between Larry and me as we pondered issues, grieved, planned, and tried to make wise decisions for my sister together.

When this picture was taken a couple of years ago, Larry and I were talking about how it could be possible that two formerly youthful and hip California beach lovers could have become so danged old and fat. We were having fun.


Darlaine and Larry and their daughter in law, Jessica on one side of the table. Ken and me on the other.

He's a special guy. Thanks for agreeing with me in prayer for him and his new wife, Earlene, and the family.

As I said on facebook, this is so sad to me. I am praying in agreement with you ((((Dorcas)))).

That is a very difficult illness to face but with Faith and prayer, all kinds of things can be done. I will keep him -and your family -in thought and prayer that things proceed smoothly and he gets excellent treatment.
