Trying to Help a Friend Deal With Cancer A FOLLOWER OF FRANCIS - January 7, 2017 ... situation, while I'd be grateful for the supportive messages, I'd also welcome something to take my mind off my troubles, and maybe add a dash of humor. I know I'd likely be cracking jokes to make light of the situation. Heck, I want Three Stooges and Marx Brothers routines to be played at my wake! And I know she has a sense of humor. So I decided to send her light verse. I don't know if she's even able to read them at this point, but I'm hoping she is able to smile even just a little. So far ...http://paxchristirochester.blogspot.com/2017/01/trying-to-help-friend-deal-with-cancer.html

I Spoke Too Soon - November 12, 2016 Last night, I said something like "We'll see what comes of that..." when speaking about my aunt. Well, who knew how prophetic that phrase would become? Shortly before midnight, my cell phone rang. It was my aunt telling me that something was very wrong and she needed help. She asked me to come over to her place right away. When I got to her home, she was in bed and was too weak and too dizzy to move. I called an ambulance and had her taken to ...http://mydailymusing.com/index.php?/archives/2775-I-Spoke-Too-Soon.html
