  1. Linda Smith’s granddaughter, Loren Risgaard, now 5 ½, is experiencing a flare up of her Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and results show it is in both knees. Further treatment will be determined in a few weeks.  Loren just started kindergarten. (8/05/15)

  3. Myra (Blake) Burtt has been diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. Her dementia has progressed quickly; she moved to the Kempton but has since transitioned to the Commons.  Sharon Walker of GA, one of the Blake sisters, was diagnosed with cancer and had two thyroid surgeries and subsequent radiation treatments.  She is currently in remission, but still covets prayers.  Lauren Swart, daughter of Deborah (Blake) Swart, continues with ongoing treatment for a chronic health condition.  She is working on her master’s degree at Belmont University in Music Industry Business (a miracle!)  Marsha (Blake) Wells was diagnosed with leukemia in June and is receiving chemotherapy.  The family has not told Myra, as it would confuse and upset her.
