Hurting so badly for you right now and wanted to do something for you so you could feel all of our love and appreciation for you, the person. I'm deeply saddened by what has happened to you. I'm searching for a way to help ease some of our pain that we are feeling for you.
I know that you ask for prayer and your brother Jeff (what a great guy) has asked me to pray and keep on praying - and you know I can still do that - I can still support you - I can still care about you - and I can still love who you are. So, I'm writing this prayer just for you. It is my sincere hope that the love of this board will transcend the distance and you will feel our loving embrace around you as we all try and will you back to good health. Patti, please, please come back to us. I don't know what I would do without you in our lives - I have missed you something terrible. Can you forgive me for not talking to you enough? My heart is heavy and I broke my #1 rule - to tell people how you feel about them while you can. I know your mind is active, so I know Jeff or your family can read this to you. Just know that your "Kindred Spirit" still cares about you and I need you back in a big way.
Dear Semi;Colon Family
Let us bow our heads and pray.
Dear Heavenly Father
We ask for a miracle tonight. We do not ask for ourselves, but for our beloved sister, Patti. She's in trouble right now and we are all hurting as a community in trying to deal with this and understand Why? Why has something like this happened and put a dark cloud over our community? Why has this beautiful spirit been afflicted after what she has been through?
We ask for Peace and Comfort for her husband, her brother, her children, and the rest of her family during this most difficult time. We ask for Patti, that you heal her and allow her to come back to us. Please allow her to be able to swallow, and talk again. Please comfort her right now and wrap your loving arms around her and protect her from harm. Please let her hear our voices reaching out to her, crying her name, so that she may feel the love of this community, who loves her, and holds her so dear to our hearts.
We also understand that this is another test for all of us. Our Faith and Conviction is being put to the test, but we will not fail or give up on Patti. We do not pretend to know how bad things happen to good people, but we will use this as a rallying point to keep supporting her and her family in good times and bad times. Please provide each of us the strength to carry on and meet this challenge head-on. Our spirits are low and we need to dip in the waters and renew our souls, so we can keep the vigil alive in our hearts.
I know this is alot to ask for, but we want our Patti back, if it is your will to do so.
We ask all of this in Your name, Amen.
Thank you, Everyone!
P.S. Get well, "Kindred Spirit"
