Some of you may know John Gintz.

You may have met him.

Please pray for him and his family.

John is in the hospital now, and has suffered significant medical problems in the past day.  His family is with him now.  He may not make it through the night.

The pictures were taken on Good Fridays, the last just eleven days ago.  One of the traditions John (and his friend Little John) have is eating fish on Good Friday.  Bettie and I have been doing “Fish Day” with them for decades.

Whether or not this is the last one with Big John is up to God.  I know I’m being selfish, but I’d like to have a certain outcome in this one.  Nevertheless,

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away.  Blessed be the name of the Lord. (Job 1:21)
