Please pray for my 11 siblings and their families and me, as we remember our dad, on the 20th anniversary of his passing, and our mom, who passed away this past September. Please pray for healing and hope, gratitude for their lives and for all their God-given gifts, which they generously shared with us. May we continue to develop our own gifts, and to emulate their examples of faith, hope, self-discipline, perseverance, forgiveness, generosity and love. May we, as they did, honor God, and give of ourselves to our families and community. Thank you, Lord, for your many blessings!
