You can count on the Geisinger’s prayers as well. I shall storm heaven for all of you …

And I will ask my beautiful McKayla to go to our Lord and ask for special blessings for all of you - to have the strength to be able face this nightmare.

Call upon your guardian angel … and all His Heavenly angels … they are what are helping my family be able to get out of bed in the morning after our beautiful 13 year old died of sudden cardiac arrest while away at an environmental camp.

The shock is still with us … it is so very very very sad … you have hope … focus on that hope … and always in prayer ask for His will …

Love Moe


Father, take the pain and suffering away from this child suffering of leukemia. Bless him and heal him and his family. Father, I ask that this parent be healed of depression and be filled with hope and peace.

Jesus, enter the hearts of all who read and urge them to become organ donors, blood donors, and bone marrow donors. For if it were their child suffering … they would be begging … In Jesus precious name I pray…AMEN





Prayers going up, may God give you strength in your’s and your son’s time of need.

*Knowest thou not, or hast thou not heard? the Lord is the everlasting God, who hath created the ends of the earth: he shall not faint, nor labour, neither is there any searching out of his wisdom. *

*It is he that giveth strength to the weary, and increaseth force and might to them that are not. *

You shall faint, and labour, and young men shall fall by infirmity.

But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:28 -31

Here in this world we all suffer, but we ask your mercy on his little soul who has suffer since the age of 2. We thank you for him and his life and trust in you to do what is best for him and his mother. Mary, Mother of God, pray for Davis and pray for his mother. Amen
