I've written about this man before....he started coming to our church when our oldest was 4 years old. He had lost his 4 year old daughter to cystic fibrosis. Our daughter and he hit it off immediately and for the next 4 years, they sat together every Sunday and Wednesday service (we sat in the same row). Even after he no longer attended our church, our daughter and he kept in contact through letters and phone calls. They have a special friendship!
We heard Friday night that he had been moved to a nursing/rehab facility and was not doing well. He has been having problems swallowing and keeping anything down. For a skinny man, the loss of 36 lbs has really taken its toll on him. He was very weak and frail when we saw him over the weekend, but what a surprise it was to him to see his 'girl' walk into his room! We were able to have a good visit him and I believe it lifted his mood. We pray for his recovery.
