Cross #15.7815

Charlotte, NC
My father received his heart from his niece, Marlene. Marlene and her family have had a special place in his heart since she was a little girl. Marlene gave him the cross to recognize his struggle. He is 90 years old and has failing health. My mom, his wife is in an Alzheimer’s Assisted Living home for over a year now and he lives with me, his daughter and son-in-law. It is hard for him to accept that his wife must be there and to be dependent on his daughter and son-in-law. The changes that come with aging, failing vision, stiff bones, his own memory problems too, all make life a struggle. It is hard for him to find joy in life these days. Please pray for him.   Submitted by his daughter
