Prayers for a dear loved one

Post by JRiggs on February 3rd 2012, 6:13 am

My Uncle Glenn is in his end of life status at hospice in edgewood. He is slowly declining but still hanging on. I was hoping that he would make it till spring so we could go sit on the river bank one last time. He used to work down at Hennards in newport, before that he was partial owner of riggs auto service at seventh an brighton in newport also. Hes been battle cancer for a year now. Its finially taken its toll. I visited him yesterday and hes starting to turn yellow. He slept the hole time I was there. He was one heck of a mechanic and one hell of a good fishing buddy .

Send a little prayer for the family and his daughters who are doing everything they can to keep it together and do as much as they can financially have his funeral the way he wanted it.

thanks

Sorry to hear this Riggs. I believe that cancer had been part of everyones family on here in one way or another. Great strides have been made in the last 20 years to slow it down but it just doesn't seem like enough. It takes a lot of good people. Prayers sent up buddy. If you need anything just let me know.

You and your family are in my prayers Jon. I know what it's like not to have a buddy around. Your Uncle definitely made an impact in your life and that's something you will cherish always.
