I posted the prayer request below, but wanted to pass along this word from Cecil Sherman's webpage.

"Word came last night from Eugenia that Cecil suffered a massive heart attack yesterday. He is currently hospitalized and receiving the best possible care. She asks for prayers. We lift them to God on behalf of Cecil Sherman and his family at this difficult time.

There is no further news as of this morning, but Eugenia will be providing an update at some point later in the day."

The link for information is http://www.cecilsherman.com/news.html.

The latest on Cecil Sherman from his daughter:

Precious Friends,

Yesterday while getting his car washed, Dad had what the physicians are calling a "massive heart attack." Some good soul, whom I have yet to identify, called the EMTs who resuscitated Dad and took him to the ER via ambulance.

The first hours at the hospital proved volatile: another heart attack (I think), numerous interventions, and finally an induced coma with a breathing tube. He is now in the Cardiac ICU at VCU Medical Center.

Thanks to a good friend's fervent negotiations with the airlines, I arrived in Washington, D.C., just after midnight. Nathaniel picked me up and we drove directly to Dad's side, arriving at 3:00 a.m.

This morning great fleets of doctors and residents have swooped in. They name his condition "very grave," but not hopeless. If he survives the next several days, they will be able to offer some prognosis.

At the moment, Nathaniel and I are ejected from Dad's room while the nurses do some procedures. We sit side-by-side, our laptops keeping us in touch as best are able. My husband Doug is en route, as are Bill and Veta (Dad's brother and sister-in-law).

You have wrapped us in the embrace of your prayers for many months. Thank you for doing so again. "In life and in death we belong to God."

—Eugenia Sherman Brown

As with the threads above, we are saddened by the passing of Dr. Sherman late this morning.
