Dear Richelle, I came across your story while doing a Google search on Officer Kent Mundell. I briefly knew Kent as a fellow member of the Puyallup Athletic Club and always enjoyed seeing him when he and I worked out at the same time. While I don't know all the details of your accident, I know you must be a good person as you were on your way to Officer Mundell's benefit. Life seems unjust at times and it often seems as though bad things happen to good people. I'm grateful you survived the accident and it sounds like you have a loving family and a lot of support. I'll continue to hold you in my prayers, that God may grant you and your family the strength to overcome this and that you may go on on to live a happy, healthy, productive life!

Hi Richelle
Hey there it was so good to see you at the game at CCC Volleyball game. We were sitting across on the bleachers. My husband was at the end taking picutres.
Every day I pray for a miracle in your life. The Lord knows just the right time to heal.

Hi
I hope this finds you ok today. We went to Kathie's game last night and they were announceing the tournment today and tomorrow. Then they made tears come to my eyes because they said that you would be there. And I asked my husband oh can we please be there.
I pray every day for your healing. I know the Lord knows just the perfect time for healing

Richelle, Hope your move wasn't too difficult and is a positive one.  You look adorable in your photo with the precious quilt draped across your lap.  I am praying for continued good spirits and new miracles to appear . . . for you to see with clarity that God is in the midst of this journey.  Love, Julie

Good morning Richelle~

Can you believe it?  This much snow at this time of year?  Easter is tomorrow…I think the Easter Bunny may have a challenge hiding his eggs!  :)

Enjoy the beauty of the God’s pure white blanket.

You are always in my thoughts with much love and prayers,
Carol and James

Hello family, near and far,
  What fun it has been  to spend time with you Richelle and get to know you even better. 
  Ever seen Hugh Jackman in Oklahoma?  I'll bring it up soon. It's fun.  You said you liked musical, so we will see.
  I heard a song in the movie Fireproof. Have you seen this movie? Sharon and I watched it tonight. Good.
  I couldn't catch all the words to the song, and of course I don't know who was singing, but  the gist of the song was I will worship when all I try is failing. I will worship when it seems you don't hear. I want to find that song. I thought of you when I heard it, though the movie is about marriage.
  Continue to worship Him and watch Him do great things in you and through you. Lift your voice and hands to our God, who gave His all for you and me.  Celebrate this time of year.
 Love you.

Dear Richelle, Peg & John~

Praise God for He continues to answer our prayers; every answered prayer is a victory!

I was listening to a song this evening with the message…each day God will give us sufficient grace.

2 Corinthians 12:9, 10
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Our prayers are with you for the journey to Harborview tomorrow, as well as all the concerns Peg has mentioned.

With much love, prayers and God’s grace.

Richelle has gotten off morphine now for over a week and now oxy is 2 days away...yeah! She is trying so hard to overcome the battle and we take it one day at a time.Please pray for her tomorrow as we head to Harborview to have Xrays and be cleared to remove the neck brace.They say it is also tough after wearing it so long,the muscles are weak and it causes much pain.
Pray for her body to come fully alive and heal quickly as she seeks to honor the Lord in her attitude and keep her eyes on the Great Healer! She is a joy everyday but the sorrow over her loss is more than I feel my heart can endure at times.
I know she WILL walk again and play again,but the unknown TIME it requires is most diffecult. All out love to those than have walked this weary road together and know...together we will rejoice in victory...in HIS time!

Good morning,
  saige and I are at the computer, sort of, I am and she is all over the place. What a joy to see her and her sense of humor.
  Missed seeing you this weekend, though I had a wonderful time with my sister and her hubby.  sisters are the best things to have, brothers to for that matter.
  Happy birthday Boolander, good to see you and Jean  .   You are a blessing to Richelle, she loves you so.
  Looking forward to seeing you soon.  Finger foods are on the menu this week, so you can get more practice. You are getting good.
  How was church on sat.  
  Praying for continued healing and my thanks too , to all the wonderful people who are stepping up to help you during your growing time.   Praying for the discomfort too.   Jesus certainly understands how you hurt, and I can see that as we get closer to Easter and think about His sacrifice for us on the cross. Lord, we bring Richelle and family to you asking relief from the pain, without drugs. Thank you that we live in a time of pain meds, but free her from the need for them. Give strength and courage. Thank you for the spirit within this woman , the spirit to work towards walking again and being all you want her to be. In Jesus' holy name.

Richelle celebrated Boolanders birthay at home today.What a beautiful time with those she loves! It is so good to see her smile and laugh,feed herself oranges,chips and enjoy the time God has blessed her with!
I see her gradually healing daily and fighting to find new freedom to eventually walk from that wheelchair!
We snuggle in her FULL sized bed and grasp the closeness we have always treasured! We know she will walk again,without question.It is just the unknown ...TIME or precise date we lack.Never the less God has put the best Doctors,PT,OT,and specail people to work with her at home! Thay ALL agree she is NOT complete...she is INCOMPLETE...PTL! God is doing His mighty work.
God says,"the righteous fall 7 times and rises again!"You will see and we will give Him the honor...:>)
Have a good one and love to all,
Peg

She has a cute sense of humor and spirit that is matchless to none!
