Dying of cancer and doesn't know
« on: July 29, 2005, 09:44:41 AM »
Dear friends,

the brother of a close friend of ours is dying of cancer but does not realise how little time he has left. His family don't want him to become upset so they haven't told him how bad his condition is. He has not spoken to a priest or gone to church for years and the devil is trying to cheat him out of what little time he has left for reconcilliation.

Please pray for Carlos and his family.

Lord have mercy on Carlos, his family and friends, and those taking care of him.

Let us hope that Carlos does manage, through the Lord's help, to defeat the Evil One just as he was defeated earleir on that glorious Pascha, freeing us all from his heavy chains of despair!

His family needs to speak to someone from a hospic center, because they are obviously not mentaly equipt to handle this.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
