Thomas W. Glenn Jr.
Tommy was a wonderful man. He was charming, intelligent, charismatic and good-hearted. He could always put a smile on your face.


This prayer circle is for all of those who are suffering from the disease of addiction, dealing with a family members addiction, or those of us who have lost a loved one to addiction. In loving memory of Tommy. September 2,1975-January 27,2001. God Bless


This prayer circle is in memory of Thomas W. Glenn Jr. Tommy was an intelligent, articulate, charming and good-hearted young man. His life ended short at the young age of 25. A true genius, the things he could have achieved if given the chance. On a cold Januay morning he passed away from "bad heroin". His family and loved ones miss him desperately and need prayers. Also, in honor of Tommy the prayers are being said for all of those suffering from the disease drug addiction, families dealing with addiction and loved ones of those who have passed on due to addiction. Tom was a conquerer, if this could beat him...it could beat anyone. Please help one another. Please Lord, give me the strength to continue to fight for this cause. God bless you.

WE LOVE YOU TOM!!!

Tom, you are in the Lords hands now and one day we will meet again For now, I pray for you all the peace and happiness in heaven.

Hi Everyone,
Wanted to say hope all have a good weekend and a great week. I work the next 3 days 8-5 then off to school 6-10 so wont have time to write. I have wed, thr, friday off so I will be back soon. I pray all are doing well and God is with each and everyone of you. I did have 3 beers tonight with the b'f for we never get to see eachother with work and school, but like I said eariler, Im NOT the drunk I used to be or have that desire, its just now and then.I love you all and want the very best for you all, I pray In the name of Jesus all your prayers are answered and that you are on the right path and a life full of love, peace, inner streght, etc...etc... I pray for all of you suffering with your kids that they STOP the drug addiction and find GOD. I watched Dr Phil the other day and it was unreal what you people go thru. This 21 yr old takes 20 hydrocodene a day, herion, alcohol, etc...They made him go on Tv(lied of course) then read his last 3 yrs to the audience what he has caused the family. The guy was so wasted on Dr phil he kept calling his parents a liar. His parent said they have bailed him out of jail 4 times, hes has put many holes with his fist in their walls, he never comes home till 4am or later, has never held a job etc..Both parents were crying on the show telling their son they love him but cant seem to help him anymore..He finally said Fuck both of you, your making all of this shit up. well long story short, Dr Phil took him to the back room and said your so loaded you cant see or think straight..Bottom line....They checked him in that day to a Rehab.....He was pissed but too confused to think: Moral of this story is: Dr. Phil said to the crying parents " Remember your dealing with the drugs not your son" This is NOT his normal behavior its all the drugs he's on, he will be more focused in 10 days after he is admitted to rehab and goes thru withdrawl and has a clear head, so to all of you trying to help your children messed up on drugs, its NOT them speaking , it's the Drug, they malipuate, lie, say anything to get their way and next fic. I pray for Joni, and Angel, your children QUIT this habbit and get thru a rehab, you can only be there and love them, once their mind is clear then you can start trusting them, until then, Its the DRUGS talking not the person,
In Jesus name I pray for all and for all to have safety and inner peace and joy and may God answer all your prayers and help us all thru our own trials,
GOd bless all,
Love Bettyann:-)

Hi All!
Hope everyone has had a safe, happy weekend! I have got to have my grandson all day Friday, all day Saturday, and I will take him mome today around 1:00.!! It has been GREAT!! I was talking to his mom on the phone yesterday, and he wanted to talk to her, and told her " i stay at Mas - see you tomorrow" He told her that 4/5 times. Didn't even want to go home and see his new puppy. ( Thats pretty bad for a 3 year old - not to want to even see his new puppy!)So he's gotten to stay the whole weekend! :) I've told them they ought to take advantage of him wanting to spend the weekends with me, and go do something together since they have him all week. Think they might be catching on! Hope so any way. See, Bettyann - drug addicts do not stop that kind of behaviour when they get their own place. They still put holes in the walls, break doors, windows, chairs, dishes, whatever!! Its just that it is in their OWN place now. That is what my grandson lives with, and that is why I also get so burdened when I know some one else is going through it. Thats why I have tried & tried to get people on here to educate themselves on addictions. They HAVE to understand that it IS the drugs talking!! Otherwise, you could lose your mind thinking the kids you have loved, and cared for, and sacrificed every thing for hate your very existence!! I am really glad you got to see that show. Drugs take away a persons caring ability. Now you can understand why I say the things I say to people on here. It is a road of pure hell. You would not believe the property, and things that are destroyed because of addiction! Most landlords are so glad to finally get them out of their property, that they just fix their places up, count the loss, because they know taking them to court won't do any good, because they don't work! They use, and manuipulate others for EVERY THING they need!!I have heard UN believable stories, and I have also seen my grandsons mom in the back of a car with drug dealers that were KEEPING her there because of money owed to them!! Times like that I DO take money, because I can't see my grandson loosing his mom that way!!I've seen guns, had death threats on my son on MY phone! IT IS UNBELIEVABLE!!! So when I say thank you for your prayers, IT IS FROM THE VERY BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!! I gotta quit for now - can't see for the tears, and can't seem to stop them. I love ya all, and am very gratefull for every prayer you say. Thank you
God Bless you all, and keep you in HIS care.
Cindy

P.S.
You can check people into rehabs ALL DAY LONG, and unless it is THEIR CHOICE, you are wasting your time, money, and effort!! Thats a fact! Also - 10 days will NOT do Crap! NO BODYS HEAD GETS CLEAR IN THAT AMOUNT OF TIME!!! I hope those parents wern't expecting someone different in 10 days, cuz they will be very dissapointed. Drugs attach themselves to fat cells, and the harder drugs are even worse to get out of your system ( 28 days doesn't do it either - the general public has been done a grave injustice by all the hype of rehabs) Its sad. Harder drugs leave minisqule residuals in the body, that can pop up at any time - even 10 YEARS after someone has been clean. Thats where the cravings from hard drugs comes from. When they hit - there is nothing they won't do - they can't help themselves even though it may not be what they want to do. They just hate themselves more when they come down. They're ashamed of themselves. It is a vicious, vicious cycle. Bono wrote not too long ago about the drug being asleep, wating to be woke up again, and prayed for eternal sleep on hers. It is the TRUTH!!
I know- my son was clean of crack once for ELEVEN months and then one night - BOOM!!! Out of the blue - for no reason the compulsion was back. The compulsion for it becomes GREATER than the compulsion for life - with any addict. Its very hard. And he hated himself for it - but it was too late - his body and mind were craving it again!! There's really nothing anyone can do except pray, and hang on to their faith. GOD IS THE ONLY WAY TO LOSE IT ALL!! He has ( my son) been off of crack now for about 4 months, and I THANK GOD, AND GIVE HIM THE PRAISE FOR IT , AND AT THE SAME TIME I KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN,( BECAUSE MY SON HASN'T COME TO SALVATION). thats why this site and all of you mean so much to me. Any way, the tears are back trying to get this across, so I will close once again. If I am able to help just ONE person, or help to ease their pain through my own, then I am grateful. I am Gods servent, and want to do whatever I can, and whatever He will have me to - no matter what.
Love you all -
God Bless you, and hang on to your faith NO MATTER WHAT!
Cindy/Angel
I pray for all with addictions, and those who love them. I also pray that every addict HAS SOME ONE THAT LOVES THEM. They are a very scared, lonely people.

One more thing- your test can come back clean - saying theres no drugs in your bloodstream or urin, but then there's the MIND. Drugs (abuse) ALTER YOUR MIND -thats not just a saying.All drug addictc I've known say they battle with their own minds all the time. Remember what scripture says? We battle NOT against flesh and blood, but against the dark powers and principalaties?? Theres reason God has told us everything in His Word.
Love in Christ -

Good Morning all,
I want to start off by saying THANK YOU GOD!! Brian did bring me his most of his paycheck on Friday. He then had to go right back to Larado and work most of Saturday. When he got home he was pretty tired, so we rested for the time that was left of our weekend. Things were ok, but he just seemed very distant. I am hoping it was just because he was tired. And then he was back off to work this morning and I am not sure when he will be home again. Quigley, I am glad the review went well and that Taylor is doing well. BA I hope you are feeling better and that you are continueing to stay strong against the drinking. I hope Kris is feeling better and was able to go to the game over the weekend. I pray that you all have a great Monday and an even better week. God bless you all, Bonnie

Dear Lord, Thank you for the blessing of having Brian bring me his paycheck and that he spent his time off at home with his family. Please be with him as he travels this week and keep him strong and give him the guideance to stay away from the drugs. Please be with everyone on this site as they struggle with the issues that they have. Please be with Quigley, Brett and Taylor and keep them strong. I pray for Joni and her family. Please let her know that she is doing the right thing where her grandson is concerned. Please be with Kris and keep her comfortable. Watch over Cindy and her family and give them the strength they need. In your name I pray, AMEN

Good Morning All,

Oh, where to start - Kris, I owe you an apology - I didn't want you to be right and I still don't but - I am so torn and confused. Brett got physical w/ me this weekend and pushed me around and bruised my arms and leg - that was Sat. night and Sun. I went and stayed w/ some friends. I was actually afraid of him - please pray that I can be strong and do the right thing here. The love I have for him is so strong and I know I can't live like this anymore. I know for Taylor's sake I need to be strong and do something about it. Brett has been dabbling in drugs and it has really started affecting everything between us. Things are such a mess - I need to go back to work but please pray that I can do what is necessary to straighten my life back out. I'm so thankful I have you all as my friends to come to w/ this - I just can't believe I have fallen to this point -


Quigley
11/10/2003 12:20

Dear Lord,

I pray for the strength and willpower to do what I need to do w/ Brett. Please watch over Taylor and forgive me for putting her thru any hardship. Give me guidance Lord -

Quigley `
I know you addressed Kris, but I just read your post, and wanted to let you know that I will be praying for ya. Love does NOT do those things - you already know that tho. It has been your choice all along,Quigley, and several of us have tried to get thru to you,tried to help, but although you appreciated the thoughts and advise, you still made your own choices as you do today. I truly hope this is an eye opener for you, and you learn from it. YOU DO NOT DESERVE THIS KIND OF TREATMENT NOR DO YOU NEED TO MAKE EXCUSES FOR SOMEONE ELES' BEHAVIOR!! It is up tp you Quigley. Its still your decision. Its your life. Its also Taylors life. I hope you start making some positive decisions for the two of you. I know you have been told that you have to get yourself straightened out FIRST, and everything else will fall into place.That still holds true also.
I will still be here praying for you and your daughter. I truly hope and pray that you take care of her. SHE IS A GIFT FROM GOD ABOVE. ONE TO BE CHERISHED.SHE NEEDS YOU QUIGLEY - NOT SOME DRUNK PARTY "MOM".
GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS
Cindy/Angel

Quigley, I am so sorry to hear that this has happened to you. Please keep praying and be strong. My first husband abused me and I can only imagine how you are feeling now. The worst part about this is, if there is a first time, there will be a second and so on so on, but only if you let it. Please, for your saftey and Taylors, be strong and get out before there is a next time. I know you love this man, but he is putting himself infront of what you are wanting and it isn't suppose to be this way. I will be praying for you. Please let us know that you are doing ok. Bonnie

Quigley, what can I say "been there done it".....LEAVE him...one time leads to 2, then 3 etc...He has you where he wants you, controlling you emotionally, he no's now your weak and you will take him back. see thats the bad side of an abusier, at first they are so convincing, I love you, I will change, Im so sorry....LIES, LIES, LIES.....It's just to control YOU caz hes out of control and the thoought of being alone kills him so then the nice guy comes out~~~~~~ It's like Angel and Kris and I have said...Now its up to you and has always been? What are YOU willing to put up with(for love) hopefully not THIS....I hope your strong enough to Kick him out and tell him to get lost and that YOU deserve better, and have the patience to being alone for awhile and when YOUR Together the "RIGHT GUY" will come along, like I told you before been there done it, married 10 yrs, (oh he will change, just give hime another chance) What a waste of 1o yrs I wasted believing HIS lies~~~~~~`In Jesus name, I pray for you to LEAVE or KIck him out, I think you just feel its safe with him, a security blanket caz your job right now and he helps you out, but It will happen the right job, just have Faith and het rid of HIM.......I pray and I feel GOD talking to me right now, it's weird but LET HIM GO, things will start to happen for you. The rest of you I pray for, have to get to bed, early day tomorrow,

Hello everyone:
Bonnie thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement regarding my taking my grandson. We will find out in court on Friday which set of grandparents will get temporary custody.
John's parents told Rachael she has to move out because her last drug test at her final day of Rehab came out positive again. She is very mad at John's mom for telling John's dad and "betraying her confidence." She is still not addressing the fact that she used again! She wants us to give her security so she and a girlfriend can get an apartment by the 15th. My husband said no. Everyone--even her grandmother said no. We have been there, done that twice before. I know John will probably move in once he gets out of rehab so nothing will be accomplished. Please pray that she will get the help she needs--her rehab visits covered by ins. ran out.
Quigley: I am so sorry to read your recent post. I know how you feel and I know the fears you are facing. "When I am weak, then HE is strong." "Look not to your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge HIM and He will direct your path." I walked in your shoes and I can say with confidence that HE will provide...
Kris: I hope this day finds you feeling stronger so you can do more of the things you want to do and I look forward to reading your posts...
Cindy: How are you feeling? You are in my thoughts and in my prayers.
Bettyann: Just a note to say hello & I hope your hectic schedule will allow for some quiet time to spend time with the Lord and refuel your spirit.
Thank you all for keeping my difficult circumstances in your prayers.
With HIS love,
Joni

I need prayer. I'm a recovering cocaine addict that recently relapsed. I'm on the verge of losing my husband and two children and I'm afraid. Please pray for me. My husband is mad at me and has lost any trust he had for me. I thank God that he found out about my relapse. It was what I wanted and needed. Its just going thru the disappointment and the not knowing if my husband will ever want me back....
I pray for an answer from our Father - I await his reply.....

Kris,
What are you talking about? Just because I write X-mas ( an abbreviation as you no) for Christmas???? As far as offending you so sorry, to each their own, somtimes I try to abbreviate so I can fit everything in and if X-mas offends you than thats your business. I dont ever use vuglar language in here, as far as my last post I was "quoting" what a drug addict said on TV not ME swearing, so learn to read correctly before judging others

Angel, Bonnie, BA, Kris & Joni -

I can't tell you how it felt to read all of your posts - I just want to cry -thank you all for being there - I told Brett he needed to leave and he took his clothes and most of the stuff in the garage (work out equip, 4 wheeler etc.). He wants to come back but I told him I can't do that right now - and I don't know if I will ever be able to. He said he would get counseling but I told him I didn't think it would work and besides, now I am afraid of him - Taylor is upset that he left - it hasn't really hit yet too much because all of the furniture is still there - he said he didn't want it anymore - I told him I didn't want it but he won't take it - the big screen and a brand new $1,300 entertainment center and dressers, tv's etc. The truck he owns is still in my name - he said he would try and get that paid off in a couple weeks - still owes $6,000 on it. What a mess. I know I need to get my head on straight - this is making it hard not to want to drink or do whatever will numb my mind but I know that is not the answer. This time of year doesn't help - Thanksgiving and Christmas - anyway, sorry to ramble on about myself - hope you are all doing good - Joni - sorry to hear things are not getting better w/ Rachael - hang in there and don't lose hope - I will be praying for you and Rachael - Dear Sanjack, as long as you have started back on the right track - don't look back - you fell and now you've picked yourself back up - I pray for your recovery and for God to give you the strength, faith and willpower to overcome your addiction - God Bless

Dear Lord,

Please give me the strength to do what is best for Taylor and I - give me the strength to deal with these problems w/o alcohol or drugs - I pray that my eyes can open to the path in which you want me to follow. Amen

Quigley and all,
Your doing the right thing Quigley and I no it's hard for you, but you deserve so much better. If he hits once he'll do it again. Things WILL get better, justhang in there and think positive.No he will try and get you to take him back and make promises to change(don't believe him)..It's all a part of the controlling game( trust me)..I pray things will work out for you and the right man will come along when things in your life are straightened out. I pray Kris you start feeling better and once again sorry I offended you. I pray for Joni, Cindy, Angel..I hope things with your families and all the addictions are overcome, and that they put God first and seek the help they need to stay clean.I pray for all to prosper, have good health, love@peace, and inner peace. May God lead us all in the right direction and path in life. Love you all and have a good day,
God Bless,

Good Morning all~
Haven't been on in a few days, as now I have a virus to go along with my back!! But it will all be fine! God is my Rock!
I need to get one thing out of the way, as far as reading the posts go, and that is this:
I do not think that sarcasim is needed here, and thats what I felt when reading your reply to Kris, Bettyann. I also do not think she was judging you!! I think she was simply telling you and everyone else how SHE feels about those things. Seems to me that you did get offended Bettyann, and I'm sure that was not Kris' intention. As far as abbrevating goes why not abb the "f" word, and give Christ His rightful place in our words? We are here to help and encourage each other, and lift each other up, not to cause desension(sp) between each other. Just my personal thoughts. We all have our "pet peeves", and should be able to tell each other about them. That IS what friendship is all about. isn't it? O.K. Enough! :)
Bonnie, I am glad to hear you are being a little more up beat and positive. Just keep praying for Gods will in your life, and take quiet time to listen. It is THROUGH Christ that I can do all things.
Bettyann, Glad you are doing so good in school!! You should be very proud of yourself. Hope everything continues to go smoothly for you!! :)
Quigley,
I am really glad you told Brett he couldn't come back. Bettyann is right - LIES- to gain more control! Plus, IF he wants to get counseling FINE!! Just NOT on your time!! Know what I mean? I really do think this is a time for you to focus on yourself, and Taylor. JUST STAY FOCUSED ON WHAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND TAYLOR QUIGLEY. STAY AWAY FROM THE BOOZE AND THE DRUGS, AND GET YOUR HEAD CLEAR, SO YOU ARE ABLE TO MAKE GOOD CHOICES. I pray that you come to a closer walk with Jesus, as I do for all of us.
Joni,
I am a little concerned that you haven't posted in a day or two, but then maybe you are at home with Christian?
I will be praying for you and your family tomorrow, and also for the Judge hearing your case. It really doesn't suprise me that NOW johns parents want her to move out! They must think it would look good in the courts eyes! (Too little-too late). Stay strong in your walk with our Father, and He will bless and keep, and sustain you in all things. I don't see things getting much better with Rachael getting a place with a girlfriend. You're right, you know she will have John move in when he gets out. I pray for Rachaels deliverance and salvation.
Kris,
I pray you are feeling better, and getting your strength back. Will see you on here again when you are led here.
Sanjack,
You are right - you need prayer. Are you a Christian? Are you saved? If not, you need our Lord and Saviour more than prayer right now. John 3:3 says " Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily Verily I say unto thee, EXCEPT a man be BORN AGAIN, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
We have to get first things first.
Must close for now. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless
Love in Christ Jesus,
Cindy

Hello everyone:
Wishing you all PEACE from the Prince of Peace...
Cindy:
Just a brief update. I am in work today to try and clean up the backlog but I will be out tomorrow with the court date. My main concern is my daughter's state of mind if the judge tells her she must go into an inpatient program now. I was upset that she signed a year lease and is moving in on Sat. Her boss even gave her a $1200.00 loan for the security deposit. They will take out weekly increments till it's paid back and she starts her waitressing side job on Sun. If she goe inpatient all this will be in jeporady. And yes, I am not happy that John's parents did this now so they look better to get the baby. It's my prayer that the Lord will make a way for Rachael and that He will allow us to keep her baby.
Gotta go for now. Thanks for the prayers
With HIS love,
Joni

Good Evening to all~
I didn't say it earlier in my post, and I'm sorry I didn't. Thank You all for your prayers and words of encouragment for all. Hope everyone has had a good day. Although I have been sick these last few days, my grandson has also been sick, so he was staying with me. He was here on Tues., picked him up Wed. morning, and he spent the night last night and went home tonight (Thurs) just a few minutes ago. He was of course crying when he left!! I had picked him up from school on Monday, cuz his mom had the day off, and didn't hear the school bus honk!!!!!!! So she walked to a phone, and called me!! His DAD (my son) has NEVER missed the bus when he gets home!! She is a little hard to handle at times! (understatment!) Haven't felt like going to the chriopractor since getting this virus (running to the bathroom too much! haha!), so my back is bothering me quite a bit, but my chriopractor is great, so my back will be ok before long. Dr. says the virus should run its course in a few days. THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! Praise God!
Joni,
Thank you for taking a few minutes to post - I appreciate it, and again, I will be praying for everything, and all concerned. I personally don't feel that Johns parents would be the best place for Christian. They seem to have been very enabling - up to RECENTLY - surley the Judge will be aware of that. I will be on pins and needles until your next post. Not really, because it is all in Gods hands and HE knows what is best for all. I must say, you seem to be a very grounded and strong Christian lady, and I am very glad we've had this chance to cross paths in life!!
Until later - remember:
GOD LOVES YOU ALL
Love in Christ Jesus,
Cindy

Hello everyone:

Just another brief post to let you all know that Christian was awarded to us for the next six months and John's parents did not take it well at all because they did not get to speak in court and tell the judge that Rachael and John were out and that they wanted the baby to continue living there. They felt my husband betrayed them because he told them if they file it will look like we are all fighting over this baby and the judge may put him in neutral foster care. My husband kept telling them to call the DYFS woman but they didn't actually get her till the night before and she had already reccommended us anyway. She agrees with us that John's parents were too enabling. My fear now is that Rachael will not get the rehab she needs. She moved into an apartment on Sat with a girlfriend and she started training for a second job as a waitress. The good thing is she will be working from 8:30 am till 11:00 pm all this week while in training. That doesn't leave much time to get in trouble. I just pray that the Lord will open up some sort of program for her. The court gave her paperwork for Rehab but you have to be qualified for Medicaid and she definitely doesn't qualify with one job let alone two. I see her really trying now. I pray this is her turning point...
I hope you all are doing well and again I thank you for your prayers and concern. Quigley hang in there God has great plans for you, plans to give you a future and a hope...

With His love,
Joni

Hi Everyone,
Joni I am so glad to hear that God has answered your (& our) prayers and that Christian is now living with you. I will continue to pray that Rachael's eyes will be opened and she will get the help that she needs. BA glad to hear that you are doing well in school and that you are able to make it on the hours that you have at work. The cut may have been a blessing in disguise, because it will give you the study time and family time that you need. Quigley I hope you are doing well and that you are staying strong for Taylor. I pray that both you and BA are able to fight of the desires of overdoing the drinking. If you have stumbled, don't be to hard on yourself and get up and try it again. I hope Kris is feeling better. Cindy how is your back? Better I hope. Well, I took a leap of faith and gave my apartment complex notice that I will be moving out at the end of my lease (Dec. 31). I am told the house should be done by then. Brian seems to be doing much better. I actually bit the bullet the other night and ask him how the demons were doing and he said they were fine, he had not used anything in while and was feeling stronger. I told him how proud of him I was and that I would always be there to listen when he wanted to talk but I would not press the issue.I have to say that I was worried because on Friday night he was acting very distant. We took Paige out for a nice family evening and we had the best time, but when we got home he said he wanted to go clean his company truck. This was at 11 at night. He told me he would leave his money at home, and I could tell by the way he was acting that he needed some time alone. He told me he would be back in a little bit, well that turned into 2 hours, but he did come home and we had some quiet time together. I did notice on Saturday that he did not vacuum the truck. I don't understand why he would not just say he needed some time alone as to lie about what he did. I tried to press him for an answer but he kept with the story the he had vacuumed the truck and rode around for awhile. So I have tried to let this one go and I had even made a comment to him that maybe there are some things I don't need to know. So please pray for my family, that I have made the right choice and we can live a long and happy life together. I pray that everyone has a great week. Are we ready for the Thanksgiving holiday? My family will be coming in from MO the day after. I am looking forward to seeing them, but am dreading the additional work, but it will be worth it. God bless you all and you are in my prayers. Bonnie

Hello all,

Just wanted to say hi and let you all know I am living - not happily - but living - Brett called my ex-boyfriend (the one I just broke up w/ after 5 years) in Newport and started asking him all kinds of questions and evidentally, they both agreed I had a drinking problem among other things. He wants to come back and he has come by but we just start arguing again - and I can't believe he called FRED! I'm humiliated - I didn't want Fred to know any of this - oh well, - Joni - I'm so glad the judge awarded you
Christian - that's wonderful news - Bonnie, That is a tough situation - I'm glad Brian is doing better but I know it's hard to trust him completely - I will keep you, him and Paige in my prayers - Have to go Love and God Bless
