Prayers for Ric Locke and his wife Bobbe [UPDATE, Dan]

A long time friend of some of the authors and readers here at POWIP, Ric Locke, is in need of our support and prayers.  This morning, at around 7:30 am, eastern, his wife Bobbe passed out and was not responding.  The last I heard he was calling 911.

This evening, at around 9 pm, eastern, he checked back in over at Protein Wisdom and filled us in further,  It turns out that Bobbe had suffered a stroke and was in the nuero-ICU at their regional hospital.  Ric said the effect was similar to a lobotomy, and he was understandably distraught.

Ric is a fine, erudite,  man who has suffered economically during the recession of the last two years like many others.  Any among us who can afford it should really visit his site and make whatever donation possible-Ric could use it and certainly would appreciate it right now.  And I would also ask that all the religious among our readers include Ric and Bobbe in their petitions, prayers, and intentions.

May God bless and keep Ric and Bobbe.  And may He heal her affliction, either by His direct interventions, or through the graces of wisdom and skill He bestows on her physicians and other caregivers, and may He grace Ric with the strength to weather this time of trial.  We know Lord that by Your stripes we’re healed, and ask that Your will be done.

Amen

UPDATE: There’s little I can add to Rocketman’s prayer, but I’d like to say that Ric is one of the smartest people on the web. He’s a systems analyst at heart, with a penetrating intellect that gets at the how of things. He’s also a man: he plans on going to his crap job today.

If readership were a sole function of deserving, he’d be one of the best-known writers on the web. As it is, the least we can do is to let him know that here, at least, we recognize his virtues as a thinker and as a person, and he is in our thoughts and prayers.

We believe that there is a greater Witness to his struggles, and that they are not meaningless. That said, our tokens of appreciation are an extension of the Love that moves us all. Be effusive in your blessings, please.

      Thanks for the heads-up SDN, but I already had linked both his site and the paypal donation button in the original post.

          Gee Enoch, I’m pretty sure I did. When I hover over the text it shows me that address. Is there something I did wrong?
