You Are Greatly Appreciated!

Week after week they faithfully walk through the door with a smile and kind words. Many times, they bring food to share. Most of them have a regular appointed scheduled time, and some come on short notice. Who are these earth angels? They are Elaine’s volunteers.

Jenifer currently coordinates the five-afternoons-a-week volunteer team and does a wonderful job of staffing the troops. Having been a friend of Elaine’s for many years, Jenifer continues to demonstrate her ongoing support in this critical leadership role.

Without Elaine and Don’s volunteer coordinator and volunteers, a great void would exist in my sister’s care. After nearly five years, many of the same sitters continue to shower Elaine with their gift of presence. The volunteer roster includes both older acquaintances and newer ones, too. That gift of presence blesses us tremendously.

Volunteers, you are greatly appreciated!  Thank you for continuing to care for Elaine by giving so sacrificially of your time and comradeship and for laying down your life for a friend!

About Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering

Our Dark Night of the Soul: Finding Solace Through Suffering shares the true story about a sudden family tragedy. As author of the book to be published in the summer of 2014, the true account tells of my sister being rear ended by a drunk driver. She barely survives the high speed crash being left to live as a quadriplegic. Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family. Only through God's grace can a family survive such a tragedy!
