the pnone with our very special friend caringsonbj (Billy as you all know him). He needs all your prayers & good thoughts . His Mother is dying, & I am hoping it was just my phone battery that went dead tonite as we talked for over 4 hours & were cut off in mid sentence. I am very tired so forgive my typing a grammical errors. Billy has been a good friend to all on the site, & has had a lot of trouble himself lately with 4 broken ribs etc... For those of you that do not know Billy (newbies) he is one of the most caring indiviuals on this site. He has had doctors orders to stay off the computer, but sent me a message to call him ASAP! I knew it was his Mom as we talked just a week ago & she was taking a turn for the worse. Billy who had polio as a child has many health issues, & now all this new stuff with his Mother. His friends from church that he has known for years are going to take him into their home after Momma goes. But you can't even begin to know how horrible this is being for him. They are wonderful people & built an addition just for him onto to their own home. That is just how i effects people. He & I started on the site about the same time, & have become very good friends. I know a lot of you are also his friends. PLEASE, PLEASE, keep him & his Mom in you thoughts. I have seen the power of this group. It may not help his Mom, but lets all hope & pray that she goes peacefully. She is 94 years old. Her kidneys are failing & she has been going down hill for some time.It is her request not to be hospitalized, because she wants to be with Billy. He is taking this very very hard. I hope & pray he keeps taking care of himself. He has a wonderful support system thru his church & friends, but I feel the commraderie in this group of people on the site, & know they are many of you that know Billy, & would give an arm or leg to help him out. Please keep him close in your thought. I haven't been on much the past few days & now you know why. Thanks to everyone... Mary
Dearest friends, I have a very special request tonight. I have been on?

I couldn't list all the sites I wanted to reach, so pass this on as you can. Most people read my Q & A's so pray hard if that's what you believe in or keep them both in you good thoughts...Mary

He's only allowed to be on the computer to me per doctors orders!I have sent him a test to read all who love him...Mary

Meant sent him a text not a test! Sorry...M
Thank you my sis, he and his mother have been and will continue to be in my prayers. The loss of his mother will be a tragedy for Billy. I hope his doctor allows him back on the site if anything happens to her.
He may need the support from online friends, as well as his real friends.
Thanks again Mary!!
Poor Billy! He must be just devastated. He and I used to write each other most every day and we kinda slacked off after this last illness. I kept telling him he needed to take care of himself and not worry about others at this point because he takes each and every persons troubles to heart himself. He is the sweetest angel on earth! You could not meet a guy with a bigger heart! He is extremely close to his mother. they are each others life line. This is going to be earth shattering for him. Billy, you are in my prayers and in my heart, my friend!
Hey honey, I was just getting to know Billy when all of this happened. I wondered why he hasn't been on the site lately. I pray for him and his mom every day, and will especially now say more prayers. I have been saying them for you too sweetie. You take care yourself Mary. You have a heart as big as Texas. I teared up just reading your request. I wish I could just give you a big ole hug right now my friend. I will pray for all of you. I love ya, and will talk to you soon. Love Ruthie
Mary, I am very new to this site but it has helped me so much already by caring people like you offering care and support. I will say a special prayer for Billy and his Mom tonight and ask others in my support group to do the same. Even though I don't know them I have faith that God will know exactly who I mean. I pray that God keeps you all at peace and eases your pain with the warmth of His Grace. Bless you for being such a caring friend. Lisa Z
What a great friend you are to Billy Mary. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out for his mother and for him. This situation makes me look at my problems and think that they are not go terrible. How brave Billy has been and how wonderful he has been to his mother and to all of us even with all of his problems. Please give him our love... pup
I've always known how special Billy is, but this just beats the cake. He has actual people from his church building an addition for HIM TO LIVE WITH THEM. I only know him online, but he must be a walking angel for people to go that far out for him!! Please send him my best Mar, and let him know that I haven't gone a day without thinking of him and his mom. May she go peacefully, but more important, may he continue on and not give up on life without his precious mom. Please tell him that we need him here when he gets better. He needs to know that he is needed also,and not just for his mom. I guess I'm trying to say is that I don't want him to give up with depression once she dies. He is too special for this world, this group, and obviously for his church too!
I said a prayer for Billy and his Mother. I pray that they are peaceful from here on end and that Billy can start his new life without worry so he can relax and start healing daily.
Say hi to him and tell him I am keeping him and his mom in my prayers.
Hugs Smileyhappy Lynne
