Thank you for sharing, this, Gloria. You have kept it in, for good reasons, but we are always here for supporting you and for giving prayer. So very sad. She is such a good daughter, thinking of Rolly's health and what it would encompass for the two of you to come. Good that your sisiter and her husband are close to you and are there to support and comfort.
My prayers for all of you.
IMPROVISE,OVERCOME AND ADAPT!

Gloria, I know I posted on one of the teams that I am praying for all of you and know what you are going through as I went through the same t hing with my brother in California. God bless all of you and may God touch you each one and give you peace. Irene

I've kept something from the team and now need to tell you. Two weeks ago we learned that Rolly's oldest daughter Sharon is dying of liver cancer and only has a short time to live.
Sharon lives in British Columbia, miles from us. She has been in the hospital for two months, without us knowing and now she will not be getting out of the hospital and does not want her father to fly out there to see her. I know she is thinking of her dad when she says not to come, she knows he's in poor health and would need taking care of himself should he go there. She was thinking of us both by keeping the news from us, but we HAD to know!
She has her own phone in her hospital room and she called to talk to her dad this morning and they talked for an hour. He cried like a baby and continued to cry after the call. My sister and her husband came over for the entire afternoon and they were a comfort to both Rolly and myself.
Sharon is having a procedure done on Tuesday to have nerves to her brain cut, to help with the pain, so that tells us she is in a lot of pain and that her time to go is close.
I'm asking for prayers for Sharon and for Rolly. It has been difficult for me to come in and chat at times during this past two weeks and I think it will feel better by me sharing what is going on. Please remember us in your prayers. It is difficult to face losing your child.
