Just recently, my dad's brother was diagnosed with cancer.  Please keep him, my dad, and the rest of his family and friends in your prayers.

The Lord have mercy on your uncle and family.
Quote
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Lord have mercy!
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft

Thank you so much for all the prayers.  He's just beginning treatment and is quite scared.  My dad is rather nervous as well, please keep him and the rest of the family in your prayers.
