RE: Prayer needed


Hum.. so what have you been doing with your spare moment Dakota?

Geesh--- sounds like your cup has run over with situations lately. So
sorry to hear that.... Hoping for better days, a successful surgery,
cancer free, and other problems will heal or at least not be
aggravating.

Sending vibes and prayers your way!

Keep us posted, when you can.

She
