Good News and Bad

Postby DuckMendenhall » Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:01 am

Fellow Waterfowlers:

For those who know me, we lost a member of our family right before Christmas. My wife and I found out we were having twins in January. Twins (75% chance both boys) and mom are healthy. Drake is talking up a storm-the apple does not fall far from the tree, every bird is a duck, from what he says. Received news this morning before arriving to work that my father's disease has progressed rapidly, Dr. states 3-6 months. The reason I write this, I am asking for prayers from you for strength as we continue our journey. The outcome is inevitable. With death, there will be new life brought into the world.

The waters will always haunt us, be not afraid, as the waters hold the key to peace and eternal life.

Lee

Prayers for you and the family, I couldn't imagine.
