Hello Friend of LIFE!
This past week we lost a great prayer warrior for LIFE to cancer. He spent many years on the sidewalks outside of Planned Parenthood witnessing for LIFE – always ready to share the truth about the evils of abortion. During his battle with cancer, he and his wife would still stop by the sidewalk to witness for LIFE when they were in town for doctors appointments and treatments. Though he will no longer be with us in body, we know that the love he left on the sidewalk will continue on in our hearts and in our witness for LIFE.
Gary LaFave (1940-2019) passed away on Monday, September 2, 2019 after his battle with cancer. Gary was a faithful Catholic and he and his wife, Bernadine, were prayer warriors for the unborn. Gary & Bernadine had been married for 47 years, had raised 3 children and have 10 grandchildren. He will be missed. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for grace & help for his family.

Lord Jesus, in your Holy Name, we ask for the conversion of hearts among the abortion supporters, workers, doctors and staff at the Planned Parenthood abortion center in Madison. We pray for the closure of that facility and for your blessing upon the efforts of Vigil for Life witnesses for LIFE who pray for and counsel women and men contemplating abortion. May those considering abortion choose life for their children. We ask that all this be accomplished for your greater glory and according to your Holy Will. Amen.
