    I’m deeply saddened to hear the news. My heart and prayers go out to him. He was a true friend and mentor to me in my teenage years (early 90’s). Many of us began going to the Methodist Church because of him. We would spend many of our days and evenings hanging out and enjoying his friendship and guidance. It never felt like we were being “preached” to, his presence and friendship was his greatest witness. I pray the Lord heals his body and provides him with the peace his mind will need.
    I regret I can not be there for him or stop by to tell him of all the fond memories I have.
    If anyone stops by to see him, please let him know that Ryan Cvik is doing well (residing right outside Washington D.C.) and living with wonderful memories of our times together.

    Please pray for Sharon Johnson’s sister Sheryl (TK) Orsak. TK was with Sharon & was also transported from the accident to Seton Williams. She had surgery today for a broken ankle.
    My prayers go out to the family: TK & Sheldon, & Sharon’s brother Dwayne. 🙏
