Prayer Request for Lory


LSB Aug 2010 (2)

I spent three days this week in Alamosa with my friend Lory, who is losing her battle with various cancers.  The day I buried my friend Naomi, Lory called to tell me her doctor told her it was time to stop treatment…time to call hospice…she was given two months.  That was July 20th.  Lory was doing fine until August 22nd when the confusion started….and has gotten progressively worse. 

Lory’s family members all work so I went down for a few days to care to Lory while they worked.  There is something very special about caring for someone you love when they are sick.  It becomes a devotional service, an honored privilege.

Lory knew who I was and we talked a little about how and where we met and about some of the things we did together…..repairing computers and setting up networks.  Most of the time Lory slept.  I cooked a few meals, watched TV, knitted and held Lory’s hand a lot.

I’ve called and talked with Lory’s daughter to see how she is doing….as well as can be expected….the brain tumors are debilitating her….she sleeps.

So, dear readers, please take a few moments and say a prayer for my Lory…that she stays pain free…that she knows she is loved and cared for….and that she passes peacefully.


Know….you are loved!!!


  1. What a beautiful lady and you are a true blessing to be with her. I am sorry that she is going thru this and praying for her pain free time.

    Bless you.

  2. I said that same prayer for my brother-in-law who passed away from cancer on July 29. Cancer is such a cruel disease, not only for the victim, but for their family and friends as well.

  3. Praying for you both...I'm sure it meant a lot to her family and to her to have her cared for by you. You are an awesome woman, Bobbie. Hugs to you and Jim.

  4. Oh Bobbie I'm so sorry that you are loosing a beloved friend. I have read so much about Lori in you blogs and I can tell that you love her and that she will be missed very much. I have always taken comfort in this passage from Proverbs 3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. God promises us that we have nothing to fear in death that a new life awaits us in the beyond.
    I will be thinking of you and saying a prayer for Lori. God Bless!

  5. What a lovely thing for you to do. How blessed everyone who comes in contact with you are. Prayers to all.

  6. So very sorry that you are losing your friend. Praying for a peaceful passing.

  7. Bless you for your caring and of course we are sending a prayer for your friend

  8. Glad you had time with your friend. Prayers for you, her & her family & friends.
