Hello my dear friends, yes I am back. I am home recuperating after having double pneumonia and congestive heart failure all inside of two weeks in St. Agnes Hospital. I even missed my Annual Scholarship Award Banquet, Oct. 26, at the Forum Caterers, but that too, I understand was a great success. I want to thank all my friends, fans who prayed for me, visited me and sent me love. I got all of that. I had some excellent doctors and specialists who took care of me around the clock, but they could not have save me alone without the many, many prayers that came from your lips to God’s ears. Thank you!
