Thank you Rosie for adding me to your page for prayers. I'd also like to thank sr/ks, GeorgiaCA, Cari, & Judy Miller for putting me on their page for prayers. Thanks to all who have done so for me.

In Oct. 2010 they did a bronchoscopy while I was in the hospital and found I have both MRSA and Pulmonary Fibrosis (scarring) in the lungs. The scarring (Pulmonary fibrosis) will keep growing until there is no room for oxygen in my lungs. Please keep praying for me that God will heal me or take me home. I have fought a hard battle for so long and I am so weary.

My Dr. said I would not be alive past April 2012 and yet here I am. I am blessed and so thankful for the 2 years I have had. Having been in church my whole life I believe in miracles. I pray for a healing or to die quickly when it is time for me to leave this world.

I also have rheumatoid arthritis and several of my fingers have been affected. I also have had asthma all my life.
Oct.15, 2014 Hospice has lovely people, they think I have 6 months or less to live. They are good to Clair and me. Meals on wheels make it easy since Clair no longer has to cook much. I have lost 16 pounds of fluid. My poor husband keeps crying. My lungs are bleeding a lot and my breathing is labored. I love you all and have enjoyed talking to you and leaving tokens for your loved ones.

Happy Halloween Grammy!
Trick or treating didn't go well for Bethann and Jovanni. It was cold and raining so we just bought candy instead! I liked that idea. Mom was crying today because she was thinking about Christmas without you and personally, I wish we could just reschedule Christmas until you're here, but then I realize that you're gone forever.. I hate this. I miss you so much. Your friends are really nice to me, but I don't really get how the messaging works yet. My friends are hurting today because Emily died only a few months ago and they're used to all going trick or treating together. Its really sad, I wish I could bring her back for them and bring you back too. But with you being healthy of course.
I love you with all my heart!

Missing you
What a good friend you were to me, and to so many of us. I'm privileged to have known you for the past 4-plus years. I will miss you, my dear friend. I learned a lot from you. You fought the good fight. You showed us all the strength you had. Now you can rest easy in the arms of our Lord. I'll meet you in Heaven one day. Love, Pam

I read what your granddaughter wrote about Jovanni being a giraffe for Halloween. I wish we could see him in his costume! I know if you were here, you would make sure someone took a picture of him and put it on here. Well, we sure miss you but are so glad you are not suffering anymore.

Dear Grammy,
Halloween is tomorrow, but I'm sure you know that. Are you out of pain now? I miss you a lot and I think about you every minute. Jovanni is going to be a giraffe for Halloween, I know you were looking forward to seeing him.. Do you miss us? I hope so, but not too much because I want you to be nothing but happy.
I put the letter you wrote me in a frame on my dresser. I love seeing "I love you with all my heart" in your handwriting... It gives me a little comfort.
Anyway, I'm going to try to get some sleep and I will tell you how Halloween went and if Jovanni got a ton of candy.
I love you so much, I wish you were here with me now.. To stop the tears.
Goodnight my precious Grammy.

I will miss you friend. I remember when you told me your doctors said you only had a few months to live, well, you showed them. You were so strong through all your illness. God Bless you, Clair and your family.

Ann, I use to check your page everyday.
I still do. It was a daily habit of mine. Always looking for an update, a new photo, a bit of encouragement that you had a better day, or a ray of hope that you were going to beat this illness. I miss you and I was very touched at how much your granddaughter misses you. I am sure she gave you a brilliant eulogy.

Every second I am alive in a world where you are not, my heart keeps breaking and breaking beyond repair. I wrote an emotional eulogy for you, I know you would have loved it. I miss you so badly, I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs.. I can't stand it.
