I don't know how many of you know, but I provide adult foster care for a couple of gentlemen with developmental disabilities. Last night, a dear friend of mine, Darrell, who I had known and worked with (though he didn't live in my home) for nine years passed away suddenly last night. If you could, please say a prayer for his family and the man who was his caregiver--especially his caregiver, who is absolutely devestated by this loss. Darrell had made a lot of progress over the years and accomplished things no one thought was possible. An awful lot of that progress can be credited to his caregiver. Darrell died a happy man, but his loss will affect a lot of people.
