Returned recently from my 18 year old nephew’s funeral, who was murdered. Dealing with family and friends back there. Also praying about an estranged relationship.

Sadness. Difficulty fighting prescriptions addiction and the depression that follows. Joyous of the support from my community and the opportunity to start over. Thankful for the fact I chose to get better before it consumed me.

So sad that during my get out of the vote calls someone said “I hope someone shoots Hillary. Have a nice day.”

Love having my daughter in the same town – joy being in Carbondale.


Prayers for Rev. Connie Stone’s daughter Abby will be going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester at the end of this month for seven days of intensive testing. The neurology team there looked at her symptoms, and said that though they are booked up for several months, they felt it would not be prudent to put her on a waiting list. Please pray that they are able to find the tumor and treat it successfully. Also, her current
insurance is not accepted by Mayo. They said she has to have a better
insurance policy before they can do anything, or we have to pay $5,000 to
$7,000 up front. Please pray that she can get a better insurance quickly.
Her appointment date is the 27th.


Prayers for Chris Burger and family on the loss of Sue (Burger) Mitchell (Chris’s Mother). She turned 99 last December.  She will be cremated according to her wishes. The plan is to have a Celebration of Life Service at the United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton, NY where she was a member. There will be an Interment Service at the Community Presbyterian Church’s Memorial Garden in Englewood, Fl. when her ashes are laid to rest along with my Dad’s (died 2001) and her second husband (of six years), Ed Mitchell (died 2009).

Both services will take place this spring, sometime after Easter. We’ll let everyone know the dates, when the actual arrangements have been made. Condolences can be sent to 110 Walters Road, Whitney Point, NY 13862

Please contact Committee on Ministry co-chairs, Marsha Muller and Lisa Ruth Mays if you have a pastoral care concern or need.
