Arnold Clauson

Here is a recent update on Arnold Clauson from his daughter Rachelle who is helping with his care at his home in Texas.

Dad had a difficult time this weekend, then yesterday [April 21] he seemed to decline even more.

We had arranged yesterday for him to receive hospice care. For now they are coming in 20-30 minutes each day. However, Dad’s symptoms were changing so fast last night that we asked them to return. They gave him oxygen to help increase his blood oxygen levels.

This morning [April 22], Dad was able to eat and was strong enough to travel for dialysis. His blood pressure drops at times, so we’re keeping a close eye on that.

Continued prayer for Dad’s healing and comfort is much needed and appreciated. Please also pray for Mom [Trish] and for me—we often get exhausted caring for Dad. We love you all—blessings and health to you and your loved ones.

  3. We can only continue to pray for each of you that the God of all comfort will provide the precise comfort appropriate to the situation Arnold and you are in. I don’t believe He will allow the current conditions to go on and on; He will act in your behalf.

  4. We continue to pray for our Father to continue to comfort, encourage and strengthen you along this journey. We know He has you all in the palm of His hands and we pray that He will manisfest Himself in a mighty and powerful way through His Holy Spirit.

    He is faithful despite this painful journey right now. We are thankful, this man of God has his family there close to love and support him.

  5. We are saddened to report that our dear friend Arnold Clauson died early Saturday morning (April 26). We’ll publish a tribute to him in our next issue.

  6. Dear Trish and Rachelle,

    God is with you. He has received Arnold in His loving arms where he now abides safe and pain free until he is reunited with you.

    With love,
    Santiago and Elke

    Abide with me—fast falls the eventide. The darkness deepens—Lord, with me abide; when other helpers fail and comforts flee, help of the helpless, O abide with me!

    Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day; earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away; change and decay in all around I see—O Thou who changest not, abide with me!

    I need Thy presence ev’ry passing hour—What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Thru cloud and sunshine, O abide with me.

    Hold Thou Thy word before my closing eyes. Shine thru the gloom and point me to the skies; heav’n’s morning breaks and earth’s vain shadows flee—In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.

    -Henry F. Lyte

  7. Dear Trish and Rachelle,

    Beth and I are so sorry for your terribly hard loss. Praying for you both to be lifted up to that high place where all our pain dies and all our losses are restored.
    Until then, know we will share fond memories with you.

    Much love,
    Rand and Beth
