Hey guys and gals..

My Grandparents live out in the sticks , and don't have a trashman out there. So what they do is burn thire trash. So it seems today , my 81 year old grandfather was out trying to burn the trash... He got gas on him some how...

Then... You know the rest....

He was burn so bad that his shirt was burnt off of his body.. He has burns to his face and arms and chest and back. Deep burns on his face and arms and other places. 2nd and 3rd degree burns on alot of his upper body. He was taken to a Phoenix burn center. 200 miles from where they live.

If you could please say a prayer for him.

Thanks.

Thank you! All of you.

You all are like my 2nd family.


Strange feeling... You know this is not the first time I was going to make a prayer request on here. The last time was also for my Grandfather. My other one. He died while I was writing my post on here.. I was half way in to writing on here and got the call..

i'm really sorry about your grandfather, hope he pulls through.

Is there any way that was diesel, not gas? I burn stuff with diesel all the time and have been fairly relaxed doing it...gas is very different. But if i thought he actually was using diesel, I would re think my practices.

Prayers for your grandfather inbound.
I hate to hear about people getting burned by fire.
He sounds like he's tough as nails! I hope he pulls through fine.

Best wishes

- Mike

Basket Case - I am very sorry for both you and your family (particularly your grandparents).

May the Lord watch over your family. May he grant your grandfather the strength to overcome his hurts, and your family the strength to deal with this. In Jesus' name we humbly ask for His belssings and mercy, Amen...
