 Please take a minute to read this!!! Clyde and Mary Borton and their daughters Kelly and Beth have been my neighbors 26 years. Clyde was a self-employed carpenter. Beth helped him in his business. Several years ago, his health began to fail. Beth became more or less his care-giver while Mary held down a job. The Bortons were those neighbors that fed your dogs, watched your house and got your mail when you were gone. Clyde was always there to give consultation on any diy job. Our neighborhood is tight. Mary worked into her 70's until they basically retired her. She was their main source of income. As their home would fall into a state of disrepair, neighbors pitched in to help out as Clyde had always done. They managed to stay afloat until NOW. When the power was out for almost 48 hours.

I kept Clyde's oxygen tank charged, using my truck when the power went out. Hoping that the electricity would soon come on, the Bortons tried to wait it out - but it was too much. A relative from Cleburne braved the icy roads to come get them. When they got to the relative's house, Clyde collapsed. He could not be revived - he died! So, Mary and Beth have stayed at the relative's house. Meanwhile, power has come back on and as their house is thawing out,. Since I was taking care of their house I discovered a pipe has burst. So - this is what Mary and Beth get to come home to. Patrick and I are going to try to repair the broken pipe today. But they have NO insurance - they couldn't afford to keep it and there are funeral expenses. If you can spare anything at all, it will help. If not, that's ok - just PLEASE keep Mary, Beth and Kelly in your prayers. And, if you wouldn't mind - please share this. It would be greatly appreciated.
She has expenses now and she is of course worried  how to proceed,  I am asking for help for the Mary Borton.  Thank you and GOD BLESS YOU for your support.

"Let your life so shine before men that they see your good works and glorify the Father in heaven!!

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

There will be no more death' or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. “Do not let your hearts be troubled.
