    Ruby, it is good to hear from you again, and that you are finding your way.  At times like this, family, friends, and your faith in God will steer your course.  Knowing that course is calming.  Fear comes from uncertainty.


    We would all run a race with you Ruby (though I'm not sure I could keep up).  Be sure that in this race, you have a lot of friends.  "Fight the good fight".  Do what you must to come out the other side a better and stronger person.

    Hey Ruby,


    I haven't been around here in forever, but I wanted to sign in and let you know that I was thinking about you and praying for you. You are such a good natured and wonderful person, I know there has to be good news in the future.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Re: Dear friends... need your prayers...



    I'm so sorry. I am sorry you and your family are going through such an incredibly difficult time and that there are limited choices. I am, thankful, however, that you are able to find solace in prayer and your spirituality and that you are supported by wonderful people, including your amazing husband. Len said it quite well (as he tends to do): we will run a marathon with you, be it literally or metaphorically. I hope you can find support from the people here in addition to all the others. We love you. You are a strong, vibrant woman and you make the days brighter of all you come in contact with. I'm thankful for your friendship, always wish you the best and offer my hope and help in any way that you need it.


    With love,


    PS- Tell James we love him too. I'm thankful you have someone so good to be your hero.

    PPS- I'm sorry I only have words to comfort you. I wish I could take some of it away.

    I do today what you won't, so tomorrow I do what you can't.

    I'm with Len. I'll run with you, but I can't keep up either.


    Continued love. I'll come see you whenever you say. Just give me enough notice to gas up the car.

    Re: Dear friends... need your prayers...

    Ruby and all,


    Ever since I heard, all I have been able to think it the following verse.  "Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”  Matthew 17:20.  I have seen this faith and postive outlook do amazing things for people.  I will continue to pray.  And if there is anything else I can do/send/help with, let me know.

    Thank you for the update.  I don't go to church often but, if I have learned anything in this life, is that God is simply amazing.  I know he will guide you and your family through this.  All the responses of support and encouragement you are getting, are a reflexion of your person.  You are an amazing person who will pull through this.  I know God has a plan for everything and miracles even for something like this, are not too big for him.  We are all praying for you and sending tons of love and good wishes for you and your family.

    Everywhere I go the Lord is with me...

    If I call upon him he will here me...

    Never will I fear for the Lord is here...

    Everywhere I go...


    My dear friend,

    This song I learned in church many many years ago and it always comes to mind when I am at my lowest point...perhaps it will be a comfort to you as well.  We are all there for you, James and the girls.  Love always.

    Re: Dear friends... need your prayers...

    Ruby, I can only repeat what everyone else has said. Thoughts and prayers are with you. It is odd how such circumstances do bring a calmness. I wish I had something inspiring to say to you. You know all of us are in your corner.

    Dig deep, people, you can do it!

    Re: Dear friends... need your prayers...

    So true, in times when we should be strong and be calming and inspiring to you, it seems YOU are the one calming, encouraging, and inspiring US, Ruby.  Peace, best wishes, healing vibes, and all our prayers will continue to come your way.  Thanks so much to you and your husband for starting the blog so we can follow your progress.  And it WILL be progress.  You will beat this.  And what a celebration there will be.


    All my love,
