Re: [MOL] Angelo

Hi Mary,
I am so sorry for what Angelo, you and your family are going through, and I
sure wished I could do something to help more.  You have to help him fight or
let him know it's time to quit, seeing someone suffer for so long is truly
hard on the family, and him too.  Please know that you are and will always be
in our prayers here in Michigan.
Love and prayers to you and yours,

 Mary:  I am so sorry.  I wish there was something I could do to help you and
 Angelo!  I can't say I know how Angelo feels, because this wouldn't be true.
 I never did get as sick as he has been.  I am so hoping there is some way he
 can bounce back, though.  I will pray for that and for strength for you,
 too, dear.  Love and Prayers, Kathy
