Sue Mason

Friday, June 9th, 2006

My Aunt Sue (Ruby Sue McLean Mason) found out today that the cancer is active again. Please keep her in your prayers as she battles on and we wait to hear more.


My Mama

Monday, June 5th, 2006

This morning Mama got the results of the MRI she had done on her shoulder. She has a torn rotator cuff and several bone spurs. In short, she needs surgery ASAP. No wonder she has been in such unbearable pain.

She is putting the surgery off until after this week since we have a family reunion (Byrd) this coming weekend in Coats. Please keep her in your prayers as the doctor says recovery will be slow and long.


Death of John Gleason

Friday, May 5th, 2006

John Gleason, husband of my cousin, Judy Creech Gleason, son-in-law of Ivan J. and Sarah Lillian Mason Creech, passed away in New York City this morning. John, who was¬†84 and in failing health, had gone to New York to visit his family. His body will be returned to Chesapeake next week for the funeral.

Evelyn Hobbs

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Evelyn Hobbs is the mother of a good friend of mine, Randy. Mrs. Hobbs suffered a stroke last night and is in the hospital in Elizabeth City, NC. Randy lost his father just about a year ago. Please remember this family in your prayers.


Update on Stephanie

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Stephanie’s surgery went very well and the outcome was an awesome answer to our prayers! There was absolutely no sign at all of endometriosis and the doctor sees no reason why she should not be able to have children. What great news! He did have to remove a cyst from a fallopian tube but it was “no big deal” and she will be fine. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she recovers over the next couple of days.


Prayers for Stephanie

Wednesday, April 26th, 2006

My niece, Stephanie, is having laparoscopic surgery tomorrow (Thursday) at Chesapeake General Hospital. The surgery is an exploratory type to gain further information on a recent diagnosis of endometriosis. Stephanie is only 20 years old. It is scheduled to be an outpatient procedure and we are praying that everything will go well. Please remember her.


Update on Brandon

Tuesday, April 25th, 2006

I thank all of you prayer warriors — so much — with all of my heart — for prayers for Brandon. I am so happy to report that at this time he is doing better! Praise the Lord for getting my grandson through this trying time and bless you all for your prayers.

Severe asthma is a frightening disease, especially for a little nine-year-old boy and his mother. There have been so many close calls with him but he’s a fighter – he was born with that Denning/Gregory/Holmes/Stewart spirit.

If you have an extra minute to spare, please continue to remember Brandon in your prayers.

Thank you,
