Salem family: A few weeks ago I asked you to keep in your prayers a 9-year-old, Lucy Riley, who is in desperate need of a heart transplant. This week her condition worsened, and Lucy is now at Boston Childrenâ€™s Hospital at Stage 1a, meaning that she will not leave the hospital until a transplant is done, if it comes in time. Lucyâ€™s congregation, which is the church I grew up in, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Torrington, CT, is trying to shower her with cards of encouragement and well wishes. I am asking if you would be willing to fill out cards, place them in their envelopes and drop them off at the church by September 3rd. I would like to send them all in one big envelope. Thank you all. Pastor Denise
