Thanks to all of you for your prayers in regards to A and M! Mel's family has their funeral services within 24 hours of the relative's death. He died at around 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday evening. They headed to Texas just as soon as they had packed clothes and got caretakers set up for their dogs. Once on the road, they stopped only to purchase gas for their car. Even though it takes 20 hours to get from their house to her father's house, they still managed to get there just before his service.
We are thankful that A and M had purchased a new car a couple of months ago. It does very well on fuel. Their vehicles that they had before this were major gas guzzlers. I wouldn't have trusted them on this long trek either. The new car is very trustworthy.
They plan on starting back home tomorrow morning. Please pray for their safe return. And please continue to pray for their whole family. Mel's father was just 68. He would have turned 69 just 9 days later. Since he appeared to be doing fine, this has hit their family very badly.
