Sad news....

I just got a call from my sissy.

Her husband's grandfather had a stroke last night. He has also been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease.

Apparently he is unable to talk, is having trouble "understanding" family/friends, cannot recognize family members and has been stricken with paralysis.

Please pray for him (J. C. Pouncey), his family and friends. He is a wonderful, generous, caring man. It hurts my heart to know he is suffering.

We are going to visit him, tonight, after work. I will give you all an update then.

That is so sad.. I will keep him in my thoughts. My great-grandmother had Alzheimer's and it was hard for everyone.

Thank you all for your prayers and positive energy.

He is undoubtedly a Christian, so if we do lose him, I am certain he'll go to a better place. Thing is, we're selfish and want him here!

Thanks again everyone! I'll post an upddate tonight.

I understand about being selfish and wanting loved ones to stay with us....

I am sending prayers and positive thoughts for J.C. Pouncey.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My grandfather suffered a couple of strokes in his life and it is hard to see someone you love not be able to remember. I will think positively for you all.
