Friend fighting for her life

Post by massett » Sun Apr 12, 2009 2:27 am

My lifelong friend Marion is in the Saint Pauls Hospital in Vancouver, BC,Canada fighting a battle with cancer. It looked like she would make it to Edmonton for your concert but alas is not to be so. We've tried everything to get her to one of your concerts, but the doctor won't let her out. Got her a tv so she could watch your concert from London and bought the CD so she can gain strength from your voice and all the memories that follow. Could you send her a prayer? Could you see her? Listening to you now, feeling you now. See you in Edmonton. -Mary.

Many prayers for your friend, Mary. There's always, always power in prayer.

Oh, dear, Mary. I'm so sorry to see where your dear friend, Marion, is at in her life. My prayers go with her and with you, as well. So hard for you both right now.

Hi Mary,

I live in Vancouver. Can I do something? I'm going to the Vancouver concert. this coming Sunday (April 19). Might the doctors let your friend leave the hospital for that concert? If so, maybe there's really something we can do here.

Please let me know.

Sending prayers for Marion. I really hope she gets to see Leonard in concert, but it's wonderful that she's able to watch the DVD.

Easter blessings, John E

Dear Mary,

I am truly sorry that your friend Marion is having to endure such a struggle. It is hard to watch a dear friend suffer but I am sure you are giving Mary strength by being there for her. Hopefully Leonard's words and music are giving her a sense of peace.

Marion, and you, will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Easter blessings,

ps..let Marion know that several fans on the Forum are carrying her in their hearts.

Perhaps you were at the Edmonton concert in spirit Marion? Perhaps L.C's soulfulness and nearness touched you? Still thinking and praying for you. Take care Mary.
