Karen’s transfer to home has proved to be the right
thing to do. She came home on Monday afternoon.
She is under hospice care for her medical needs.
With hospice nurses taking a large part of the day
time and the night shift, Karen is receiving very good
care. Volunteers are also scheduled to be there
throughout the day to help with meals, laundry and to
spend time with the boys. Your cards, short visits,
and most of all your prayers are so encouraging to
Randy. Karen, for the most part, is in a deep sleep
and with medication seems to be resting comfortably.
The boys are being real troopers with Jared and
Derek spending time holding their mom’s hand and
taking part in devotional times with her. They are
back to their regular school time and are glad to be at
home. Through this very difficult time God has been
“Therefore we do not lose heart…..inwardly we
are being renewed day by day.” 2 Cor. 4:16
