Please Pray for Papaw

For nearly 13 years now, I've had the privilege of knowing Bobby Cornett, or as we call him, 'Papaw.'  Paps is actually Audra's grandfather, but we've always had a great relationship.  He is by far one of the funniest, sweetest men I've ever known.  He's a fighter, a veteran, a family man, and he has always had a heart of gold.  Some of my fondest memories with Audra's side of the family have been in Papaw's hometown of Groom, Texas, where we've been pheasant hunting since I was in high school.  I just really love this man a lot.

The reason I'm asking people to pray for Papaw is because tonight he's laying in a hospital bed, fighting for his life.  He's been fighting cancer for a while now, and as of today, Doctors have discovered a tumor in his brain and blockage in his heart.   Papaw has known Jesus a long time and he knows where he's going, but even with that understanding, it's still hard to see a loved one at this point of life.  Please join me in praying for Paps.  Pray for our family and ask God to deliver the peace that truly does surpass all understanding.  Thank you in advance for praying.
