Dear Friends,

I am posting this photo of my father in law Carson to ask for your help. He had a stroke Friday and the outcome is not looking good.We are taking things one day at a time. I believe in God and the power of prayer. Please pray for him and our family at this difficult time.

This is an older film shot of Carson with Dylan, the first Great Grandchild of the family. It is one of Carson's favorite photos that I have taken of him through the years.

I could not have hand picked a better father in law than Carson. He is a wonderful man and his tenderness shows through in this photo. I love him very much.This is my favorite photo of him.

Update, 12/19/2013, Carson came home today and he is making progress! Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.
