There is a dear family currently living in Alabama that used to attend my church down here in Orlando. We have received these emails this past week. I know there are alot of praying Dads on this forum and we are all a part of Gods family, so I thought I'd share it with everyone:

INTRODUCTION NOTE: For those who do not know the Chubbs, they were members of Orlando Grace Church for many years prior to moving to Alabama. They have 5 children, ages 15 to 7, one of whom (their oldest daughter) has Downs Syndrome. Julie Chubb is in the hospital in Huntsville Alabama.

5/11 UPDATE: The doctors performed exploratory surgery on Tuesday morning (May 10) to determine the cause of the bile duct blockage. They found pancreatic cancer which had spread throughout her bowels. The doctors told her that there is no hope and that she has only a few weeks to live. If she opted for chemotherapy, she would possibly have 2 months or longer, but she did not choose to do that. Tuesday night, Marco told their children the medical diagnosis. Please be in prayer for Julie, Marco and their children, as well as Julie's mother. Julie asks that our church family please embrace her family over this next year as it will be a long, hard road for them all.
MAILING ADDRESS FOR CARDS, NOTES & CONTRIBUTIONS--Marco and Julie Chubb, 328 Widgeon Drive, Scottsboro, AL 35769

5/14 UPDATE: Karen, Suzie and Suzy flew to Alabama yesterday (Friday) to be with Julie and to minister to Marco and the children.

They spent spent 1 1/2 hrs. with Julie yesterday and were just about to go into the hospital to see her again. They were also able to be with the Chubb children today. Karen is amazed at how radiant Julie is. "God has given her the grace to die and the
peace to leave her family knowing that they are in God's hands."

The IV pain medication is not working and Julie is in intense
physical pain. It's almost as if she is paralyzed because to
move even a little bit from side to side is excruciating. Please pray for the doctors to alleviate this pain.

There are many people there this weekend visiting--family and
others. Their church is rallying around them and showering them
with love, so they are not alone.

One request that Julie had was for Marco to homeschool the children for one year. They would not have any insurance coverage for him if he does not work. Marco's boss has graciously told them to not be concerned about that...Marco will be covered regardless of how much he works over this next year. So Marco will be homeschooling the children.

Julie asks for prayer for Marco as "he needs her so much", so please lift him up in prayer during this time.

Karen, Suzie and Suzy will attend church with the family on Sunday morning, then fly back to Orlando.

Practical gifts: Many people have asked what they can do to help. There is a Wal-Mart SuperCenter and a Sam's near the Chubbs' home where they do all their shopping. Gift cards may be sent to their home if you would like to contribute.

UPDATE:
Julie Chubb died in peace today (Sunday, June 19) between 4:30 and 8:00 a.m. while everyone was asleep. Marco said that she was in the presence of the Lord at a time appropriate for her because she often met Him early in the mornings while it was still quiet in the house.

Please continue to pray for the family.
Thanks.
