    THE FORUM MASCOTT...
    I just go the bad news. My friend Jerold has died. He had survived many close calls with death over the years. He has had Chrones disease for many years and the Remacaid(sp)? was hard on him. Being anemic "allergic to iron" didn't help much either.
    A while back Jerold was diagonsed with Lukemia. The last time i talked to him he told me that he had no real quality of life...that he was just plain wore out from the time he wakes up to the time he went to sleep. He said it was no way for a person to live.

    Well, he finally lost the fight.

    And i don't know if he hung on to his athiesm till the end or if he got right with God at the last minute. His wife Anna is pretty tore up and it is a question that i have no intent of asking for some time to come. I'm just not going to "ask that" now. Anna is a Brazilian National so i don't know if she's gonna sell their house and go back home or not? Jerold lived in Brazil for 20+ years and he considered Brazil to be home even though he was white.

    Thats life for ya...

    Sorry for your loss GN... I know that's hard! Let's hope for Jerold's sake that his pride lost to common sense and reason, and Jerold accepted Jesus. :eek:

    Why even ask? Assume that he did and be happy that your friend is in a better place. Certainly he went through a lot of difficulties and Crone's can be very debilitating. My thought would be that the Lord said to Jerrold,
    "Jerrold you've suffered long and hard. Would you like to join us now and find peace and be pain free"?

    I think that Jerrold said, " Yes, Lord, I would".

    I wanted to say you have a great deal of insight Mr. Tim and to also share the following:

    If a man lives his life as though believes there is a God, he really suffers no disappointment at the hour of is death if there isn't one. Author me.
