Pray for my dad Deon Walker
« on: July 31, 2011, 09:36:38 PM »

Friday my family received news that my dad Rev. Deon Walker has cancer that is not treatable. Today he was placed on hospice. I have been informed that I am not allowed to see my father or attend his funeral. Tomorrow I will be consulting with my attorney about a court order allowing me to see my dad, and be there. Please pray for my family and especially my dad as he will soon enter Heaven and be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you.

If the Supreme Court said that the Westboro Baptist Church can attend funerals for military personnel when protesting, one would think you can attend your own dad's funeral when not protesting.

The very idea is utterly repugnant, and if Brad Walker has any sense of honor, he would want to come on here and affirm that you can indeed see your dying father!

We'll be praying for you and your family.

Good news! Tomorrow I will be traveling to see my dad. He has been given 2 to 3 days. Please keep my family in your prayers, especially my mother as we prepare to let go of my dad. Thanks.

Alex's father passed away a little bit before he was able to arrive today. Let's remember the family in prayer, and particularly for healing.
