    Hi everybody! I just wanted to say thanks for the prayers for my Grandma, she's doing much better now and hasn't had to have a pacemaker put in yet, the medication she's on seems to be doing it's job so, God willing, she won't have to have one put in! :)

    On another note tho, my brother's best friend, Norm, isn't doing so well :( He got put in the hospital the weekend before Thanksgiving as they found another mass on his back, at the base of his neck, that was giving him alot of pain. They gave him a round of radiation last monday hoping to shrink it (it's inoperable because of the delicate location it's at) but he had a severe reaction to it and they almost lost him on Tuesday. He made it through that and was doing okay over the weekend but yesterday they had some bad news, the tumor has grown and the outlook isn't good at all. It seems that it is just going to get bigger and eventually cut off his circulation and paralyze him and then finally cutting off his breathing. They don't think he'll get to come out of the hospital :( If you could, pray for strength for him and his family, he has a wife and 2 young boys (both under 10).. i can't even begin to imagine what they're going through. My brother seems to be doing alright for now, but he's not really one to show his feelings anyway and I know this is tearing him up. I don't know whether to pray for a miracle or what.. i've just been praying that God's will be done and if it's in His will that it's Norm's time that he goes peacefully and doesn't suffer.. Any and all prayers are greatly appreciated.

    Hello.. I wish I could come and have a better update but, I just got a call from my dad and Norm passed away this afternoon at about 2:30.. at least he's not suffering anymore and is Home.

    Please continue to pray for his family and my brother for strength to make it through this trying time.. Thanks.

    Oh Heidie, I am so sorry to hear about Norm. I know this has to be a hard time for all of you right now. I will be sure to keep you all in my prayers. It is good to know that he isn't suffering anymore though. I'll be praying....

    Hugs,
    Kelly

    Dear Heidi,

    Let me express my deepest sympathies in the loss of your brother's best friend. I shall pray for you, your brother, and the family of Norm that you all would be able to come through this tough time knowing that God truly IS in control. I can tell you from experience that it is so true! Read John 16:22-23 and Revelation 21:3-4 for some comfort. Me and my fiancee (PrincessTracy) will be praying for everyone and may God put His fatherly arms around you and give you a real good bear hug! If you need anything don't hesitate to ask us!

    In Christ,

    Jeff
