“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”

~Psalm 23:3 (NIV)~

Charlie Schwartz sent me a text last night that he had talked with Jimmy Williams and learned that Vickie W. Gill is not doing well. Please pray for Vickie and all her family and friends.

We all know others who are in a big battle with Covid. Please pray for the friends and family members of those whom you know are fighting Covid.

Danielle Dillon lost her battle with Covid. If you knew her, you will remember how sweet she was. A common thought among her friends was “To know her was to love her”. I’ll post an obituary when one is available. Please pray for comfort for her many friends and family members.
