Update: Sadly, this evening Mike lost his battle. Our hearts are heavy with sadness as we mourn the loss of Mike Atwell. Please keep Laura, Caleb, and the entire family in your thoughts and prayers
It is with a heavy and prayerful heart that we, as a City of Ferris family, are asking for thoughts, prayers, and help for one of our own.
COVID-19 is a terrible virus and has placed Mike Atwell, a dispatcher with the City of Ferris, in ICU where he is in renal failure, with pneumonia, and fighting for his life. Mike has spent over ten years serving the citizens and City. Mike is a former police officer for Wilmer, Hutchins, and Lancaster.
The hardship associated with this virus goes well beyond the physical toll that it is taking on Mike’s body. The financial impact to his family will be significant and during this holiday season, his fourteen year old is facing Christmas with an ill-father and is separated from him.
Ferris is family. We come together and support those around us and those in need. If you feel called to support Mike and his family, please donate and please pray for God to bring healing and peace to Mike and his family.
"Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well." ~
