Funny how we are tempted to pray to a god we deny

Have you decided; that since I didn't need you before
You don't have to answer my prayer?

Thank you...Teddy

is just ten years older than me, but has had a couple of heart attacks and infections. He has been bed-ridden for the last 4-5 years. We are as close as brothers. I am sending snail-mail this morning. Here's hoping that it's nothing. Thank you all for your concern; I will keep you all informed. I can feel all those virtual hugs, thank you. ~ Geez.
