This is a bit off-topic, but I know you folks, and so, rather than go to Prayer Requests where I am unknown [for obvious reasons]:
I have a close friend who has been diagnosed with fairly advanced cancer, and begins chemotherapy soon. Both she and her husband are exceptional people. Having, in first marriages, raised families, after they married each other they adopted two girls with Down's Syndrome [they were both well past 40 at the time; raising anyone at that age is not easy, let alone two with disabilities] who are now teenagers. I don't think the girls can comprehend that Mother is sick and might not recover and I'm not sure that their father can cope on his own [he's about 70 and not in the best of health himself]
The Jewish custom is to recite psalms for the ill person, as well as praying for a complete recovery. If anyone here would be willing to do so, I would appreciate it. The psalms should be dedicated to Aviva bat [daughter of] Sara.
Thanks a lot. This is a non-denominal request, I think <g>
