Re: [IP] How God Selects
Sorry, just another thought ...
I had a wonderful woman from a church nearby (where I did not attend) stop in
and visit my mother when she was terminally ill (my Mom died 10 years ago
from ALS). And watching someone die slowly is incredibly painful. This is

I will see her through this disease until there is a cure. I know we will all
be here tomorrow for a future that only brings sunshine, happiness and cotton
candy <SMILE> (sorry, I couldn't help adding in the cotton candy...).
