Dearest praying friends,
This morning around 5:00 am, Janice saw the Savior’s face for the first time. She went quietly into the arms of her Lord.
There is no way we can express the mixed emotions we have as we consider that she is no longer in the room but instead ‘with the Lord’. This week had been hard because the tumor had grown down into her neck. It was painful for her to turn her head or be touched and breathing became difficult.
We have no details more than this at this time – only to ask you to continue to pray for the children; their loss is great. And pray we will have wisdom in all our decision as we navigate the coming week.
We cannot put into words how deeply we have needed and still need your faithful prayers for Janice and the children and for us over these months. Please do not stop.
The last thing the children said to Janice last night after some loving good-byes were the words of these verses, ones Connor had memorized for his Bible Class at school and Morgan had hidden in her heart.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6, 7
With love and appreciation for how you touch our lives by living what it means to be the Body of Christ to our family.
Gary & Elizabeth
