I just received word that Edna's husband passed away. The cousin who called me told me something I didn't know: The man had Alzheimer's. In my book, that puts a whole different perspective on his death. And as Cliff said, at least he didn't have to lay and suffer. So now the prayers will go for the family.
As for the friend with cancer, his chances are great for beating it, as the cancer is contained and has not spread. Still, going through radical chemo or radiation, or any of the treatments for cancer, is not always easy. So prayers and positive energy for him are appreciated.
Holly still hasn't found her bird; I'm sure she has looked all day. She's put ads and flyers out all over her little town.
