I just wanted to share with you all how grateful I am to my brother Jim and sister Karen they have been so supportive to me during this time with Elsie. Elsie is not doing well. She has many infections and her lung may be collapsed, and so on and on. I sometimes think I am going not going to be able to handle this , but I keep on being strong for Elsie and the others around me. I must get my strength from having such a supportive family and having gone through what I did with my mom. I appreciate all your prayers for Elsie, she needs them now more than ever. Jim sent me another song from Van Morrison, that is so true to my mother. It is called Madame Joy, which is what my mother was like as a young lady. Her smile could capture anyone around her and she was just happy and outgoing. That is what they use to say to me before I had problems with my teeth. When I first got my braces off they said I looked like Jimmy Carter who was president at the time!
Love you all,
