Richard’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Matthew 17:20

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Rick was diagnosed with stomach cancer on June 25, 2013.  This page was created to keep friends and family posted on his journey.  Our family asks for prayer at this time and we have FAITH that God is going to use Rick in a MIGHTY way.  God is bigger than Cancer. Romans 8:21 says, "If God be for us, who can be against us?"  Please pray along with us for Rick and his family.

Latest Journal Update

Brief Update ~ Dad

Good morning friends and family.  I just wanted to put together a short update requesting prayer for dad for a couple of specific issues.  Dad still having some chest pain where he pulled a muscle from doing physical work (laying concrete block) so he went to the ER to make sure everything else was okay.  The good news is after spending a night in the hospital and numerous heart tests and other tests, the doctor sent him home with muscle relaxers to try to help with the chest pain that seems to radiate to the back of his neck.  He was given instructions to try to rest up so the muscle can heal and possible physical therapy in the future if needed. Dad is also scheduled for a petscan this coming Friday, so prayers are appreciated for favorable results.
Thank you for your prayers and support for dad and our family.  They truly mean more than you know :-)

Love, Kristi
