This morning country superstar Collin Raye is asking for prayers via his Facebook page for his dear mother-in-law who is in hospice and getting ready to end her earthly journey. He is clearly heartbroken. This is what he says:
“My dear friends, I want to send out a huge thank you to all of you who have been praying for my family these past couple of weeks. I've been made aware of a significant number of you, who've passed on well wishes and prayers for our family, especially our MeMa, Doris Parker. She is my mother-in-law (and close to me like my own mother) and my kids precious grandmother. Actually, she's more like a mother to them as well. Many of you know, that she has been fighting leukemia for quite some time, and within the past few days we've learned that cancer has spread to her liver. Hospice has informed us she's in her very final hours of earthly life. She could pass at any moment. Therefore, I call upon you again to pray for comfort and peace for her and for courage and peace for my kids, and all her sweet family, during this time. None of us are ready for her to go.
We have a hard time imagining this world without her, yet we know beyond any doubt that she will quickly, upon passing, reside in heaven with God Almighty, Himself, as well as her entire family who have preceded her, especially her dear departed husband, Gary (our dad and grandpa), and of course our precious little Haley, whom I know is anxious to hug her and show her around heaven. Doris has lived a beautiful life of selflessness and obedience to God, full of sacrifice. There are many "Pharisee" type of people I've encountered in my life who have talked the talk but our MeMa has walked the walk. What a precious example she's been for all of us. Thank you, thank you, my friends.....I appreciate you all, more than words can convey. May God bless each of you with whatever you need from Him the most. Till next time, your friend – Collin”
It is clear that we really need to start a prayer chain for this family for peace and strength. Collin’s page at Facebook is: https://www.facebook.com/collinraye
