Brother Brian’s sisters mother-in-law has been placed in hospice. Brother Mark wrote the following prayer for her and her family:

Dear God, Creator of all that was, is, and ever shall be:  in the midst of a world in crisis and division, crisis and division man has made for himself, please give your attention to Jean and help her and her family cope with the change in her health.  Dementia is a terrible disease, a disease that causes us to become lost in ourselves and lost to our families.  Be with Jean and all of her relatives as they seek to minimize the damage of the disease, seek to insure a good quality of life for her, and seek to understand all they can about how to help Jean in all ways.  I ask these things in the name of Your precious son, Jesus Christ.  Amen.
