As to Alan, he is going to have Radiation Therapy and see what happens. It's tons better than Chemo. I went through Radiation T also, and it did the trick. I am praying for Him, but I do know that the Lord is taking away many people whom He wants to go to heaven. I know he was an agnostic atheist, but he at least claimed to be agnostic. That's a step in the right direction. I am praying to God to forgive him for his inerrant beliefs because he evidently doesn't know any better. Too bad his mother didn't take him to a nice Christian Church when he was a boy. That's his mom's fault, not Alan's. Well honey, you are a little sweetheart. God bless you for caring!!
