Hurting for an old friend~

Oct 7th 2012 new

Just got a phone call from one of my best friends. At 75, he has just been diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis and doesn't expect to be around much longer. His wife left for a wedding and didn't leave him his meds. Always very sweet when I visit every year, she has become quite verbally abusive and won't talk to him anymore. She also has a gambling addiction- the cause of their bankruptcy. Thank God he has a few friends to bring him food and take him to the store. If he lived nearby I could help, but all I can do is pray.

Here's what you as a friend could do even at a long distance: Get the church involved(the nearest catholic church); get a social service involved(Contact United Way, the operator will connect you with best services he needs.)
