hello everyone, I have not had time to come here often as of late, and have posted very infrequently the last few months. I have recently lost my full time job, and with family crisis, I have not felt much like crafting lately.

My nephew who is 34 has esophageal cancer and is dying. We have him here in our home with hospice. He is a wonderful person who himself has lost so much, only to end up with terminal cancer. His father died when he was just a teenager from terminal disease, and just 3 years ago, his mother, whom he was very close to passed away. My nephew found his mother one morning after she had not gotten up for work, and when he tried to wake her he discovered that she had died in her sleep. He was devastated.

My nephew is an only child, he is single, but he does have a daughter. Her birthday is this Thursday and she will be 15 years old. she is a beautiful young lady who is very sweet, and she just recently started scrapbooking. My nephew is in his last days, so please pray for his comfort, and for peace for his daughter, and our family. And please ask that he does not pass on his daughter's birthday. My mother who is 84 years old has already lost her husband, and 3 of her children so she is taking this very hard. I myself am so emotionally drained. I used to take care of my nephew a lot when he was younger, and he is like one of my own to me.

Also We have set up a memorial fund for anyone who wishes to donate so that his final wish to be buried with his mother's ashes in his arms can be realized.

Please share the link with anyone and everyone you know, on facebook or anywhere else. Thanks in advance for your prayers, and for sharing the link. And if you find it in your hearts to give thank you.

Oh, nancyh! I'm so sorry for all you are going through right now. I can see why you don't want to be crafting right now. Prayers going up for your DN; this is so sad and he has been through a lot in his lifetime. Prayers going up for the whole family....especially your mom and your great niece. They have a lot on their plates, as well as you.

Thank you everyone for your prayers, and for anyone who may have donated or shared the link. My nephew passed away this morning at 5:55 am. He had enough strength to make it through his daughter's birthday, which was yesterday. He is now resting in peace. And we were able to raise enough money to meet our goal to honor his last wishes. The outpouring of love we have seen this past several days has been amazing.
