its so difficult to hear this news and to not fall into a deep depression..im pretty good at ignoring what is going on around me and i am trying really hard to do that now..this news is sitting on my shoulder and im trying to just keep it there..but since fear is a part of my everday life, this isn’t making things easy..

Jen- Oh so sad to hear all of this. I know this has to weigh on you heavily. You know as well as anyone that each person is different but how can you not feel as you are right now. Just rely on all of those prayers offered for your healing. This will help you deal with it. You do have the ability to sort of ignore things-an inherited trait from Grandpa and Uncle Paul. Keep it on your shoulder don’t let it get the best of you. LOVE YOU!!!!

Don’t know what to say – all I can offer is an ear to listen and a big hug whenever you need it…

It is devastating and terrifying. Remember how we felt when we discovered the death of the 37 year old Survivor star? This feels even more upsetting… like someone chipping away at any small comfort…
