Please Pray For Our Friend, RON TOMES, -Pray For A Peaceful Passing

You know I never mind
asking for prayers
for someone.

But THIS ONE is tough!
Our friend, Ron Tomes,
has only hours to live as I 
write this post.

Ron has a type of cancer
that does not respond to 
regular treatment.
His only hope has been a
STEM CELL TRANSPLANT.

His son was his donor a couple of weeks ago.
Sadly, for Ron and his family,
the transplant did not work.

His body is full of infection
and his immune system is so compromised
that he can't fight it off.

Ron has been such a wonderful support
for John in his recovery.
He prayed with him and talked to him,
understanding what he was going through,
as only another cancer patient can understand.

He has always been full of hope and is a 
TRUE INSPIRATION
to everyone that knows him.

Ron looked forward to golfing with
John and his buddy, Jerry Price,
this summer.
I guess he will be golfing in heaven now.
Please pray him home to that big
GOLF GREEN
in the sky.

He has maintained his faith in God 
and always felt his illness was
a lesson somehow.
It has been.
It has been a lesson in 
GRACE & ACCEPTANCE
as he fought this battle.

Pray for his wife, Sue, and their children, too.
His death will leave a huge hole in all their lives.

Thank you so much for your prayers.

  34. Praying for your friend, Diana. So many times I have ask God "why" when I don't understand something,learning to trust completely is hard at times. God does know and care about His own and when the time comes He will be there for him.

  37. My prayers are lifted at this very moment for Ron and his family and for you and John.
    It is incredibly hard to watch a friend suffer through a terminal illness. I have experienced it as I watched my friend who I taught in the same classroom with for years suffer with and succumb to cancer. She knew and loved The Lord, and she is in Heaven today, but I still miss her each day.
    Sending comforting prayers to each of you.
    Gentle hugs,
    Jackie

  58. Good morning, Diana. I was lying here in bed praying for you guys (5 am, I'm not in bed all day, really) and read about Ron's passing and also today's report on John. You don't know how it brings tears to my eyes to hear of these men of faith, trusting God through the hardest of times. Although the world around us seems to be going to hell in a hand basket, so to speak, God remains faithful and there are still those like you and John and Ron and his family who look to God who is their hope and strength forever. I am sorry you have lost a good friend who was such an inspiration, but now rejoices in the presence of his savior. We are continuing to pray for you all, and may God continue to bless his servant John with health progress. And you with continued grace and humor. xo. Judy

  59. Our love, sympathy and prayers to the family. Ron was a wonderful man. I enjoyed working with him on the CESA advisory board. I did not know he was ill. It came as such a shock. I would have written to him.
