Praying for peace and comfort

Steve is rapidly declining. His respiratory system is failing. His kidneys are failing. He is horribly uncomfortable.

Hospice begins crisis care tonight at 8.

The goal is to provide him comfort.

Please pray for peace and comfort for our amazing Steve, who is appropriately wearing a Superman shirt today.
