Condolences to Dove, her beloved son John passed at 2:40 Nov 13/07
My son John (51) had a rash last week that went from itching to extreme pain. He went to the ER at 2:30 AM Friday morning. After a lot of testing it was decided he had Shingles and LEUKEMIA. We cant believe this after loosing his Dad last October. I think we are all in shock. He starts chemo next Monday for 4-6 weeks and then off to Stanford in San Francisco. I have one other son and John has a beautiful wife Sandie and two sons ages 18 and 22. The last two years have been a living h--- for us all and now this.

Please God, don't let this be true ! :sad: :sad: :sad:

Oh my dear Marge. I can't believe this is happening to you and your family. All I can do is send you a big hug and know that you and yours will be in my prayers.

Dove, I'm not sure what to say. This place seems like a living room at times, and everyone tries to say the right thing. Coming from me, and what my beliefs are, I fear it will sound contrived. I don't believe in a god, so I cannot say I'll pray for you.
What I do believe in is spirit and strength and community.

You've always impressed me as a good and right person. I believe that you will all find a way through this simply because it's what you do. However it happens, you won't do it alone, nor will your son. It takes a special type of person to reach out when they need to, knowing that it will help.

I hope for peaceful days and nights for your family, and laughter when tears want to prevail. Put it out there, and it will return to you.

I hope I've made you feel a bit better, knowing at least, that I am thinking of you.

Oh, Marge, bless your heart. It seems troubles come in bunches. There were several times in my life that I felt like Job.
You will find strength to deal with this. Just keep in mind that times will get better, sooner or later.

I'm sending you strong vibes and warm hugs!

Oh Marge,
I'm so very sorry to hear this news. How, I wish, I could walk up to you, put my arms around you and give you a hug, or hold your hand, tell you it will be all better. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and in my prayers. If, you need to talk or anything please let me know..

Marge, I can't tell you how shocked I am. I will pray for John, his family, and you. I am just in shock. I am so very sorry.

MJ 02-03-2007 08:01 PM

John, you and everyone will be in my thoughts and prayers Marge.

I can just offer you a big, heartfelt...
