    No disrespect here, please. A good friend was taken to the hospital with a blood clot/brain aneurism. Got a call from our Pastor last night with the news. It wasn't good. He was already on a ventilator keeping him alive.

    This is a good man. He is/was our church's sound man, teen Sunday school teacher, youth leader, and cook. He was one of our Pastor's best friends. His right hand man, essentially an associate Pastor without officially being one.

    he was also the first person I ever met who was also a Hi Point owner. He has the 380.

    I have not received any updates yet, but it didn't sound good. I do believe in the power of prayer, so who knows, he may be fine now.

    He is 35 years old. His parents are in their 70s and their health is failing. They already lost one son years ago.

    Pray for him (Dan), the family, my Pastor and our church.

    Again, please no ignorant, disrespectful comments. This isn't a debate thread in the religious section, this is a sincere request. Thanks

    Your well wishes are sincerely appreciated

    Can I hitch a ride on this train?

    Got a call yesterday that one of my younger sisters is losing her battle with C. It has relapsed twice already and the drs say that this last bout , the radiation from chemo has done irreversible damage to her intestines. My family that lives in Calif are asking me to take off from work to come and see her before she starts to lose coherency. The drs told her 2 to 6 months, but my family believes she will be gone sooner. Thanking the Lord that this year I'm expecting a tax refund (hopefully within the next week) so that I have the means to do so. I hate when something like cancer puts you in a position where you literally can't do anything about it. :mad:

    Definitely sending prayers your way Hermit

    Brother Dan has gone home to the Lord. the way I understand it, he really died last night. urns out he is an organ donor so they kept him on machines for all the necessary testing. Almost the whole church family spent pretty much the whole day at the hospital today. He was officially pronounce dead at 3:45.

    Interesting that he really was a man of God and truly wanted to see folks live on in eternity with God. Now, though organ donation, he is helping folks live on in this world too.

    Prayers and condolences :( Hermitt if funds are an issue any time let us know, we can do a fund raiser to help you get there.

    Thank you.

    Funds shouldn't be an issue as I'm expecting a tax refund this year. (filed taxes last thursday) I'm also going to drive my wife's jeep (patriot) there as it's only 750 miles one way (about a 12 hour drive) and gas prices are lower now. My mom also lives in Santa Rosa and I'm going to stay with her while I'm there.

    It just really sucks that cancer has to take so many people from us at such young ages. My sister is the 4th child of 5, (I am the oldest born in 1957) and she is still in her 40s. :(

    My condolences Bump. Maybe those who get organs can find God. Sometimes the good ones go early. I wish I could say something and make it better.

    Hermitt - prayers going up. I am glad you can get some time with her before she goes. Here's hoping that He says yes for more time.
