APRIL, 2006
Greetings everyone,
We arrived back in Redlands from Morro Bay on March 14. We are blessed to have a nice space at Mission RV, our favorite RV park in Redlands.
We have discovered many friends from years past who have joined us as full-timers. They have sold their homes and are now enjoying a life of being on the road in their RV’s and are currently parked at Mission RV.
This week I received the first copy of the re-release of Roses In December.
  Book Cover

The book has been in continuous publication since 1987 and has sold more than 200,000 copies. This edition contains a new cover and two new chapters in the Appendices on the loss of a loved one to suicide and the loss of a loved one to AIDS. I hope you will go to your local Christian bookstore and encourage them to order copies of this re-release of Roses.
Last week Glen and I joined my P.E.O. chapter on a walking tour of the University of Redlands. A University professor designed a sun dial on the wall of one of the new buildings and he also designed a sun dial for one of the Mars landers. The sun dial is very elaborate showing standard time, day light savings time, the spring and fall equinox and the summer and winter solstices.
Glen and I had the chance to share with our local Compassionate Friends group last week. I have been invited to speak at the national conference of The Compassionate Friends in Dearborn, Michigan this summer.
Glen’s radioactive seed implantation procedure was today. We arrived at the hospital at 7:00 am. Glen had to fast since yesterday morning, so needless to say, he wanted to get this thing over with. The procedure started at 9:00 and was finished by about 10:30. We were back home by 2:15 pm. Our pastor, Lowell Linden came to have prayer with us and my friend Lauren Briggs stayed with me all morning. The doctor reported that all went as planned. Glen is certain he was used as a human pin cushion, but he seems to be comfortable most of the time. He is well supplied with antibiotics and pain medicine. Please pray that the recovery will be uneventful with no further complications and that the little seeds will do their job and kill the cancer.
The dedication of Nate's Place at Arrowhead Christian Academy is set for April 26. I'm sure we will have lots of pictures for the next Herald.
We want to thank you again for all of the e-mails and phone calls inquiring about Glen and for all of your prayers on our behalf. Please continue to remember us in prayer as we serve Him wherever we go.
In Him,

Marilyn Heavilin
