Please, please please pray for our dear friend Rick! He is in the hospital on a respirator. He's just 60 and is a great dad, grandpa and husband of my best friend Linda. She is beside herself with worry. Please pray for Rick and for Linda and their family that he will get well and the family will be strong and find peace while waiting for him to recover. Thank you so much. It will be nice telling Linda the places where people are praying. Will you. please include where you life, please? Thanks so much from the bottom of my heart, Jan

Thank you so very much for all your prayers. Our dear friend Rick passed away last night. We don't know God's plan. His wife, Linda, will have quite a time with grief. Thank you for any prayers for her. So sad. Much love and appreciation for my Cutie friends, Jan

Hi Jan, I do pray that Rick will come out of this current situation. I will continue to ask God to grant Rick comfort with his breathing and to clear his lungs of fluid. Pneumonia is not a good thing to have any time. Thank God for those wonderful nurses and all the medical staff. Please tell Linda that I am praying for him to improve, bit by bit. Love, prayers and blessings to you all. Love Chris

Praise the Lord! Rick is a little better today! He is still on the ventilator, but he is doing better! Tomorrow is his birthday and his family will get to see him via Zoom. He still won't be able to talk to them, and may not even know they are there, but they are going to be singing Happy Birthday to him. Thank you for your continued prayers! Hugs and Love, Jan

Rick is still in intensive care and in critical condition. The good thing is his family actually got to see him through a Zoom-like set up. They got to talk to him, and think he may have heard them. His daughter got her guitar and sang to him. They don't know if he is making any progress, but at least he is not getting worse. What a wonderful nurse that was to go to the extra trouble to set that up for this family! Praise God for working in this family. Thank you all so much for your prayers!

He is still on the Ventilator, paralyzed by medication, on heavy duty pain meds, in prone condition. He is a strong man and we know he is fighting the fight of his life.

We know the family of a guy that was like Rick for weeks/months. Pete is home now because of God’s mercy answering prayers. Their constant prayer was one day at a time.
God knows how this will end, it’s just so stressful for those close to Rick to wait for Gods timing and answer. Therefore, we draw closer knowing God has us in the end because we’ve put our trust in Him and whatever His answer is, He has us covered.

Thank you so much, Toogie, it is so nice to have that encouragement. I'll tell Linda about this family.

Rick is still on the ventilator and is in a special bed that keeps him in the prone position. That machine uses gravity to help the lungs. They have him heavily sedated and on a cocktail of powerful medications. He is very very sick. Thank you all so very much for offering your prayers. Much love to you all, Jan
