Let me be like the one leper out of ten who returns to give thanks to Your Son. Thank you for what you have granted. Thank You for what you held back. Thank you. Always. Amen. P.S.

Aechter;Harry Horsman;DorisCulverHouse;Audrey Carey John Freeman; Wilma Neels;Dr. Ram Mehta; Sean Kelly; Deborah Guzzi: Ambassador Carol Brown;Andrew Crisi;Brandlee Augustus;Joyce( I told you first!)
