PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) updates us on Luke

2015-Aug-24

Good Morning All,

Luke successfully underwent his surgery last Tuesday and all went as prayed for. Luke has been doing well and as that continued, the MDs expected he would go home on Saturday. Luke’s Mom, Heidi remained with him and the Family are so grateful for your prayers. This little Warrior and his beautiful smile fill one’s heart. If you recall one of the pictures sent out last year, Luke really liked and was really cool with his new shades. Please keep those prayers coming so that Luke gets to sport those shades again in this beautiful weather. Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Littlest Jasper Luke

2015-Aug-15

Good Morning All,

Our prayers are requested for our Littlest Jasper, Luke. Luke will be going in for surgery this Tuesday, August 18, 2015. It is surgery that is required on Luke from time to time and the Doctors are confident that the plate being put into his hip will be fine. We want to make sure that this is the case so please raise the volume as we pray that all goes well with no complications for this little fighter. Luke is expected to be in Hospital for three or so days if all goes as expected. Please keep his parents, Heidi and Peter and his Grandparents Anne and George in your prayers as well. Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Little James

2015-Aug-10

Good Evening All,

About 10 days ago, I asked for your prayers for a little fellow that had had some complicated heart surgery and was not doing well. That was on July 31, 2015. Little James, three years old, is not doing well. He is still in ICU with a lot of restrictions and things keep going off track requiring Emergency attention. Little James is a fighter. The MDs at N.Y. Presbyterian Hospital are on the case and little James is on their case. We pray for the Doctors to get the problems under control and resolved quickly. This little fellow needs to be home with his parents, his little Sister and his Grandparents. Please raise the volume once again. Thank you. God Bless.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Heather and family

2015-Aug-03

Good Morning All,

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the death of our Niece, Heather. Heather was called home on Saturday. She was surrounded by the warmth and grace of those who love her. We know that she is at rest in God’s Eternal Embrace and are thankful for her deliverance from the pain and suffering that she endured but we miss her. Heather was and will remain in our hearts the beautiful young woman who graced our lives. She was beautiful of face, beautiful of heart and spirit, gave of herself to so many. A sense of humor and wit that was a joy to be around. She was a good person in all the ways that matter and she touched the hearts of just about all who came to know her. She dealt with life as best she could with the help of God. She loved her children, her husband, her family and with her wonderful smile and a twinkle in her eye, she would readily tell you that she did. I will always smile when I hear someone say, ” What were they thinking ” because Heather in a fun filled way was want to say,” Aunt Peg, What were they thinking.”

Please keep Heather, her husband Cameron, her Children Grace and Reid in your prayers as they so deeply mourn their loss. We, her family, are so grateful to Heather’s Mom and Dad, Joanne and Ed. We are so grateful to Heather’s Sister, Stacey ( Heather’s best friend ), Stacey’s husband Scott, their children, Riley, Kelsey and Griffin who shared their lives and joy so fully with Heather, Cameron, Grace and Reid. Their love knew no boundaries. We are grateful for Ryan. (Heather’s Brother) and his Wife Krystle, they were there for her. We give thanks for Heather’s friends who were close to her heart. We give thanks for Cameron, Grace and Reid, they were Heather’s Blessings and her life.

A good friend of mine, Jerry Lynch, shared a prayer to ease our pain and I take the liberty of sharing it with you because we all have known the pain of losing someone we love.

In The Arms Of God:

We don’t like to say goodbye to those whom we love whether
It be at school or a cemetery, separation is tough.
It is right for us to weep but there is no need for us to despair.
Heather had pain here, she will have no pain there.
She struggled here and will have no struggles there.
You and I might wonder why God may take her from our home,
But she won’t. She will soon be at peace in the presence of God.
When it is cold on earth, we can take comfort in knowing
That our loved ones are in the warm arms of God.
And when Christ comes, we will hold them too.

Our Family thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts. God Bless.
