Pray for Richard “Red” Murray’s eternal rest, and for strength and comfort for Nancy and their family. Richard, Nancy and I go way back.

We also need to pray for Helen Prophater’s eternal rest and strength and comfort for her family. I’ve known Helen since joining the Panhandle Players and I am a charter member. She was a great person, and will be missed.

Be kind to one another. Check in on the sick and housebound - and ASAP also stands for Always Say A Prayer.

Until next time, God bless America, our troops, the poor, homeless and the hungry.
