The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to any charitable recovery program to assist those living and struggling in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. All of us have significant challenges in this life. The struggle of every minute of every day is sometimes overwhelming. We can only ask: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen. --Reinhold Niebuhr
