Caring Bridge: Helps You Stay in Touch

Today I received word that Ronald Asmus (the father of a friend from my days at Bethany) has been hospitalized with leukemia. It came on very suddenly, and his friends and family are still reeling from the news as he is fighting for his life. Please say a prayer for Ron, and for his wife Sharon and their family.

The other reason for this post is to alert you to a non-profit service that helps family and friends stay in touch with one another when someone is suffering a chronic or terminal illness. Caring Bridges offers dedicated pages on their site so that family and friends (especially those at a distance) can keep up-to-date with their loved one’s progress/prognosis.

Does someone you know need this kind of assistance?

Finally, Lisa at CatholicMom.com asked me to help spread the word about a wonderful give-away that is going on right now … an exquisite amethyst necklace with a Mary pendant. Click here to sign up!
