Karen Larson. 4/28/2014. Earlier in the year there was a request for prayer for Doyle Stratton who was having difficulty with his left eye. At the point of the prayer request there was no diagnosis but since has been diagnosed as a Shingles Virus in the eye. The affected eye also had dangerously high pressure. Doyle had very little sight in the eye. On April 10, the doctors had managed the pressure to the point they could surgically enter the eye and break apart some tissue that was blocking sight and examine the optic nerve. At last report Doyle had some vision restored and the eye pressure continues to be managed. He goes in twice a week to check pressures in the eye and to manage the virus. Doyle continues to stay at Winter Ranch so the doctors there can manage his case. He wished to thank all those who kept him in their prayers over this trying time.

We know he's much happier, without all the suffering of this illness & from the Chemo & Radiation he endured. He is now in Heaven, Praise God!

We invite you to participate in a greeting card shower, to celebrate and honor our mother, on her 90th birthday on May 5! Please help us give her a very special birthday to remember: by filling her mailbox with birthday wishes, memories of your first meeting with her, fun times you have enjoyed together, or photo glimpses of happy moments from the past. Please send your cards to reach her home at: Tena DeBoer, 28782 832nd Avenue, Hollandale, Minnesota 56045-4081: If you wish to call her, this is her telephone number:507-889-9441
