A family from our church is going through a very difficult time. The adults in this family are grandparents and guardians of their three grandchildren. At one time it was five but two have graduated and moved out of the home. The grandfather who is 62 was diagnosed with metastasized pancreatic cancer a month ago. He has been sick for much longer but was not diagnosed until recently. The doctors say it is just a matter of weeks. He is ready to move on but is very worried about the family he is leaving behind. Both of the grandparents have been on disability for quite a while. Once he passes on she will loose what little income he brought in. They are very worried about losing their home and and meeting the monthly bills as well as continuing to support three grandchildren. It is enough to sit and watch someone die as he is on hospice at home but to also have all these financial worries. Please pray for Larry (grandfather), he is in so much pain and nauseous constantly, unable to eat. Please pray for comfort and strength. Please pray for the family.
