Prayers of Brian Potter

Prayers for Brian Potter

 

Nick Potter asks for prayers for his younger brother, Brian, and his family:

Sadly I have to tell you that Brian's cancer has returned and is showing in both lungs.

He is restarting chemotherapy today (3/10/2013) but the good news is that Cheltenham is a centre of excellence for cancer and the hospital is just around the corner.

Along with Sue, Anna and Ruth (expecting her first child in December) he is going to need a lot of support and encouragement over the next few months so your prayers would be a powerful medicine along with any messages you may

care to send.

Tragic death of Patrick Morrissey's grandson

 

 

Our former National President, Patrick Morrissey, and his family have received the dreadful news that one on his grandchildren died in a car accident today (17th September 2013).

He was being driven to school this morning when his mother's car was struck head-on by another vehicle. Flynn, aged 11, a much-loved grandchild and one of Dominic's sons, died in the crash. His mother and another son in the car

were taken to hospital but are not thought to have serious injuries.

Please remember Flynn and his family in your thoughts and prayers at this very sad time.
